I was using Task Manager and I didn't even realize you could change the view. However, looking at those other views raises the next question.

Compute_0 is at 100%, woohoo! Any idea why Compute_1 is idle?
No idea, but on my 980M, only Compute_0 is showing load when FAH is running, and it matches with GPUZ which I usually use ...

This worked great, although it's tough to find. In windows 10, open the task manager, click the Performance tab. Click "Video Decode", and change it to Compute_0. Glad to see it's at 99% and not 2%!

Some GPUs and/or drivers now call this Task Manager view "Cuda".

nVidia has every right to call this CUDA, since that's their name for their proprietary streaming code for GPU computational processing. What is it called if you're running an AMD GPU -- since as far as know, AMD has not paid the license fees to nV.
