In one of the newer Creators Updates, the Windows 10 task manager was given performance metrics for GPUs. Task manager breaks the GPU usage into 3D, Copy, Video Encode and Video Decode.
However, I am really confused as to what each of the categories means. To me, it seems logical that 3D should see a spike when I run something like a game, video encode should see a spike when I render out video (like in a creative cloud app) and video decode should see a spike when I play video. (like in VLC)
However, from my anecdotal evidence only 3D and Video Decode ever show any significant activity. I have not idea when Copy and Video Encode are supposed to register.
Is my computer just weird? Does this work properly for you? Thanks!
