How can I force PPro to export using my powerful CPU instead of my GPU?

Hi all. My system has Ryzen 7-3700X (8 cores/16 threads), 32 GB DDR4 3200 Ram, NVME and SSD drives, a GTX 960 4GB and Windows 10 Pro . When exporting I can see in Windows Task Manager that GPU works at 99% but Ryzen's 16 cores/threads runing at only about 40% (!!!). What I think is that my GPU causes a "bottleneck", is that the case? So is there a way to "force" Premiere to utilize my 16 cores/threads at 100% instead of my "weak" GPU? Thank you in advance!

As long as you still have that GPU and you're still using GPU accelerated rendering and encoding, you cannot do anything at all about that. The GTX 960 is seriously mismatched to your CPU (performance wise). The only fix is a new GPU. Unfortunately, any decent newer GPU will cost much more money right now than they intended to due to low stock and high demand. And this situation will not improve much, if at all, for months to come.
