Fedora 34 - Graphics Card is not being utilized

Hey Everyone

I have the Nvidia Graphics card but seems like It is not being used in Fedora 34.

In the previous versions It was working just fine but now it is not the case…
The CPU is cramping hard on the graphics and fan noise is so loud when the game is running…
Here’s a glimpse of the usage of the graphics card when a game was running

Can anyone help me if actually my graphics was being used or this is just some bug?
If My graphics is actually not being used Why is this happening and How can I fix this

If you have dual GPU this can happen. It just recognizes on of the GPU’s and just supports this by default. Fixing you can by install the NVIDIA drivers manually.

But first please paste again your info’s like:
inxi -Fzx (in terminal), so we see which GPU’s you have.

Device-1: NVIDIA TU116M [GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile] vendor: Lenovo
driver: nvidia v: 465.27 bus-ID: 01:00.0
Device-2: AMD Renoir vendor: Lenovo driver: amdgpu v: kernel
bus-ID: 05:00.0
Device-3: IMC Networks Integrated Camera type: USB driver: uvcvideo
bus-ID: 3-3:2
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.11 driver: loaded: amdgpu,ati,nvidia
unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,nouveau,vesa resolution: 1920x1080~144Hz
renderer: AMD RENOIR (DRM 3.40.0 5.11.19-300.fc34.x86_64 LLVM 12.0.0)
v: 4.6 Mesa 21.0.3 direct render: Yes

This is what I got…
