Low fps (for)rtx 2070

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all just got a rtx 2070 and was playing apex legends and i get around 120 fps if i put it all on low settings. now im guessing its my cpu that is causing the low fps as with my gtx 970 i was getting 90 - 100 fps. my current cpu is i7 4790k 4ghz am i correct in saying this?

Possibly, monitor cpu and gpu usage with hwmonitor (running in background) or msi afterburner (in background or on screen display) if your cpu usage is at 99-100% and gpu usage is less than that you are indeed cpu bottlenecked, you may alleviate it some by overclocking your cpu if that is the case

Hi ya played another game. Cpu load is around 75% temps 56 degrees, gpu is around 40% again 55 degree low temps but i only get 70 -100 fps? why is it not pushing to get more frames idk if im being an idiot or something.

And as you say to overclock when i was building my pc i got a h97 motherboard so cant overclock cause my budget was low at the time.

I think its probably the cpu. More than 120fps requires a lot of cpu power.

 

But use rivatuner and msi afterburner just to make sure


Damn....

so im getting 40% gpu and 60-75% cpu

but around 80 fps using afterburner to monitor it

chaning to ultra makes the game lose maybe 10 15 fps
