Low CPU + GPU usage, terrible framerate?

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Ryzen 2700X, 2x8GB 3200Mhz, Gigabyte RTX3070.

It affects some games and not others.

EG - Apex Legends runs at 200fps ultra settings, CPU + GPU high usage. But then Battlefield 5 runs at 40-70fps at lowest settings 1080p, CPU around 50% and GPU at 20-30%.

Black Ops Cold War also hitches at times. Other games like Fallout 76 or Modern Warfare are fine.

If I set render resolution to 200% the GPU usage does go up in BF5, so it seems to me it's some sort of weird CPU issue....but what? CPU runs at full speed during games.

It's driving me nuts and I cannot understand what the problem is and why it affects some games and not others.

This photo below is BF5 running at 1080P low settings. It's at 70fps doing nothing, when things get hectic it literally goes down as far as 40fps, even though CPU and GPU clocks remain as they should....so nothing is throttling.

No help at all, but can you tell me what you are using to get the temps etc on the left?
