High CPU Idle when running Win 7 VM + GPU Passthrough

Hey Guys,


im running a Win 7 VM + GPU PT + Intel NIC PT + USB PT + OnBord Sound PT. It occurs that when the GPU VM is in IDL the overall cpu load on the dashboard is between 30-50%.

I have one more Win7 VM running on the System wich i access via RDP, there is no GPU passthrough and the IDL load is always below 10%.


Anyone has a solution for the high IDL load or can point me in the right direction?


I checked the win 7 taskmanager and actually the GPU VM is doing nothing, really i don't get it :(...
