Will i7 8700 be bottlenecked by RTX 2060

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey

 

I am in process of building my rig and I am wondering if Intel Core i7-8700 will be bottlenecked(too much) by EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC Black Gaming(6GB)?

it will. but you shouldn't worry about it, a bottleneck always excists

 

it's a solid combo imo, but i would personally prefer a k series, but that might be me

Ye, I know bottleneck must exist but Im just worried its not too bad.

 

Hmm, is there any reason(except preferential) to go with k series if this one will be bottlenecked already by GPU?

No, not in any practical way in the overwhelming number of cases

an 8700 is a perfectly fine choice for something as moderate as a 2060.

Will something like this be a good combination of components for mid to high gaming(I dont expect 200fps in new games).

 

I plan on playing all new games(AC Odyssey and such) 

you can still get that cheaper... and better

You will be able to easily get 60fps in games running at 1080p with that set up. 

Also if the GPU bottlenecks your CPU it doesn't mean that getting a different CPU will give you better FPS. So unless you want to spend more money on a GPU the "bottleneck" really doesn't matter.

if you like to overclock

 

and how one game prefers threads, the other one will do on clock speed. it's depending on the game

500gbs is a bit limiting for a single drive. If it were me i would throw another 20$ down and get the 1tb 860 evo, which is plenty fast and has enough storage for a handful of large games.

I think calling it a bottle neck might be a weird way of putting it. It won't slow down your CPU, while your cpu might end up with less to do, its not causing it to run slower like a slow CPU would do to a fast GPU.

 

 

It would be better not to think of two bottles connected always having a bottleneck. If a component isn't being slowed down by another, it isn't a bottleneck. 

 

While yes your CPU would get more frames with a faster gpu, you aren't harming its own performance by using a slower GPU. While with a slow CPU you would harm the performance of the GPU from its potential.

Ye, thats one of the changes I will go for. I was thinking of getting HDD 1TB but I think 1TB SSD is better and I can always plug in external HDD or SSD to store data
