This is physically impossible with current code. How do you think you are
assessing that? Tools like htop can be useful while the simulation is
running. Your md.log file reports the number of threads it runs on the
number of cores, which will obviously depend on how you built GROMACS, of
which version, and ran mdrun (which we don't know anything about, by the
way...) If you're doing a simple run with reaction field electrostatics,
then there's little for the CPU to do. But we don't know that either.

The same PME simulation running about four times slower without the GPU
seems about right. But we have far too little information to even agree
that there is a problem :-)
