That could be good. 70% would be more worrisome,
because we'd have to assume the CPU was really
doing the rendering. At 100%, it becomes reasonable
to guess that the code does a busy-wait spin after
the rendering. Maybe it only needs 2% of your CPU,
and the rest is just being wasted because you have it.
