Which upgrade will improve performance more, CPU or GPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My current system spec is the following

 

Cpu - Ryzen 1700x 
Motherboard - Asus X370i
RAM - Corsair DDR4 3600mhz 16GB
GPU - EVGA Nvidia 1070

 

I'm looking to over the course of the next few moths to upgrade both my CPU and GPU to a to the current Gen Ryzen 3700x and a Nvidia 2070.

Which leads me on to my questions, which on of the two upgrades on their own will provide the most performance increase? considering that I mainly use my system for gaming and occasional uses of AutoCAD Civil 3d.

For games the 2070 will be the better upgrade. the 1700x is still a good CPU in terms of modern gaming.

 

If you will upgrade both eventually then I would get the GPU first, especially since 2070s are going for quite a good price atm.

Thanks for the response guys, I agree with you that the GPU would be the most meaningful upgrade, and to be honest i dont think ill changing my CPU for while yet.

As for my monitor runs at 1440p and 60hz. I find my current setup can handle it, albeit with some tweaking and occasional drops in FPS, however i feel that an update to the 2070 would improve the consistency of its performance.

check if youre being bottle necked by your cpu (it seems unlikely) , if you are then a cpu upgrade is your best bet, if not then do the gpu upgrade for sure

What’s the usage of the CPU and GPU whilst under los? Check task manager for this

How about upgrading to a Radeon RX 5700XT when the aftermarket model cards arrive in a month or two?
