High CPU usage when High NIC Usage

Elior Zeno

New Around Here

I use Z170XP-SLI mobo with i7 7700k
The onboard NIC is Intel® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)
I have 1Gb ISP
When I download at high speeds 600-700Mb/sec+ I noticed the CPU is @ 80-100%
(verified that the download is the main CPU usage)

Is it normal ?
Is this onboard is that crappy ?
Is Intel Gigabit CT Desktop will help ?

Thank !

Use Windows Task Manager to determine what process(es) are consuming the CPU. In my case it's usually Chrome.
