GW2 very low GPU usage
Hello, the first beta weekend for GW2 has started (yes NDA is over) and the game has very, very bad GPU usage. I don't know if it's the drivers or what.

Intel core i5 2500k
8 gigs ram
GTX 570 SLI
Windows 7 64 bit

Under SLI I get about 8-13% GPU usage on each card giving me about 20 fps on high settings

Turning off SLI I get about 20% GPU usage on one card giving me the same results.

Is this a known issue you guys are working on?
