CPU Utilization

Recommended Posts

I have a triple core processor and while doing the benchmarks I noticed that NovaBench never pushes any of the cores beyond about 95% during the CPU tests and even then there is quite a bit of fluctuation. I assume that happens as NovaBench switches gears, and thus it's likely normal. The thing that seems abnormal (to me) is that the third core always remains in the area of about 45%. Shouldn't it be pushing the third core just as hard as the rest, or is that perfectly normal?

Nothing to worry about, but thanks for the feedback.

The tests do take every core into account, and your results are consistent with those for similar processors.
