I'm pretty sure you must look your cpu and ram for multitasking, not the gpu.
This is funny because when i am playing on my computer with the GTX 660 i can run 5 things well streaming a video game and when i open and close the video game i am playing there is no lagg or FPS drop. But when i play on my gaming pc with the Radeon RX460 i can only run a game nothing else and i have massive FPS drop when i first open a game back up after alt+ tabing it takkes about 2 mins for the FPS to go back to normal.
