Will 5820k bottleneck a GTX 2080ti at 1440p?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm thinking of upgrading my graphic card to improve my gaming experience.. my goal is to be able to run Odyssey at the highest setting / frame-rate on a 1440p monitor..

 

I'm currently using a GTX 1080 ROG strix ..If I upgrade to RTX 2080ti, I'm concerned I won't see a huge improvement if my CPU becomes a bottleneck.

It shouldn't but I dont think pouring close to $2000 into a graphics card is a good idea when that same kind of money can be put elsewhere.

I say just overclock your card and call it a day.

Plus who said you have to game at the highest setting? its foolish to dump money into a problem that doesn't exist if you simply turn down your settings.

Also Assassins creed Odyssy isnt that well optimized so I say its best to lower the settings as opposed to dumping that kind of money on a card that may not make much difference.

Yes.

 

My i7 8700k bottlenecks my 2080 ti.

 

In tests that I have done only 5ghz CPUs don't bottle neck it at 1440p. 

Only at 1600 and 4k is a bottleneck avoided.

 

If you keep your currant monitor you will see little or no benefit with a 2080 ti unless you need it for RT. You already have the best GPU for non RT at 1440p 60hz.

IF OP plays at 1080P @60Hz, then yeah, the CPU would prolly be a bottleneck .....but what I don't get is, why all this CPU bottleneck questions here and in other forums I go to. I don't think a 'balanced' system is written in stone, or a target that one should be strive for when building a PC system. There's always something that is a bottleneck, plus one MUST make allowances for future upgrades.

 

I had an i7 4770K + GTX1080 system, shifted the GTX1080 to my HTPC rig and got an RTX2080 Ti. All the games I'd played with the 4770K + RTX2080 Ti rig ran at easily 80fps to well above 100fps (at max ingame setting @3440x1440P). Some games, like Strange Brigade, ran at 130fps to 200fps easy....was my CPU a bottleneck? Most likely, but did that make games unplayable? Far from it! I've since sold off the RTX and a VEGA II sits in its place......@1440P, max out ingame setting + AA and stress the RTX2080 Ti, then the CPU bottleneck becomes less to no issue.

I'll be playing at 1440p.. 2080 ti is not cheap and I don't want to spend so much just for a 5 - 10% increase in FPS.
