How badly will my 3770k bottleneck a 2080ti?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a 3770k that usually runs at 4.2Ghz on load, a Strix 2080ti(coming), 16gb of ram, and a 3440x1440(21:9), and 1080p(16:9) monitor hooked up to it, there's usually video content that creates a GPU load on that 1080p monitor. 

 

Should I see a lot of bottlenecking playing at 3440x1440 ultra settings, while that second monitor is active?

 

I mostly play open world Bethesda games(that are modded to the limit of stability) and AAA games. 

 

 

Sorry if this is an obvious question I haven't been keeping up with hardware for the last few years.

Intel 3770k is legendary CPU.

 

sounds good to me.....From my understanding the higher the resolution like 1440p or 4k......the more the gpu works then the cpu....at 1080p the cpu is doing most of the work....at 1080p the CPU has more drawcalls then the GPU at higher resolution...SO if you step up your resolution your Gpu will be the bottleneck not the Cpu...thats my understanding lol.

Depending on the game, you might see a bit of bottlenecking at 3440x1440 because of your CPU (mostly light esports titles like Counter Strike, Starcraft 2, Overwatch, etc.) but if you're playing newer AAA games then you should be just fine. Really, I'd get the GPU and just go from there. If it ends up being an issue, upgrade to a Ryzen 3700X/3900X or a 9700K/9900K later down the road.


Current Build:

CPU: i7-8700K @4.7 GHz/1.25v (all cores)

GPU: GTX 1070 FE

RAM: 2x8GB G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 @3200 MHz

Mobo: Asus Prime Z370-A

CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 Evo

PSU: EVGA 650 Watt G2 Supernova

Case: NZXT S340 Elite

 

Current Laptop:

Model: HP Envy X360 13

CPU: Ryzen 7 2700U

GPU: Radeon Vega 10 (Integrated)

RAM: 8GB 2400 MHz, dual channel

 

Old PC:

CPU: Intel i7 980X @4.0 GHz/1.34v

RAM: 3x4GB DDR3 @1333 MHz

Mobo: Some old x58 board

Even with i9 9900K, there was no difference at all in 4K test i saw online in tomb raider game on ULTRA settings and other games on 4k vs intel i7 3770k.

It concludes that, if you only want to play in 4K,newer titles, you do not need to upgrade to new cpu or new system, you just need a new GPU especially if you have I7 3770k overclocked. Like Emberstone said too depends on game.

With newer titles you are fine with light weight titles you might see some bottleneck.

3770k will bottleneck in some games but will be fine in others, usually post processing kills it or games that have been traditionally ai heavy (civ 6? idk, i don't game much)
i run a 3770k @ 4.4ghz and a rvii

 


Ryzen 5 3600 untuned | 2x16GB CAS14 3200MHz (AFR) | Radeon VII | ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

Thanks for the answers everyone, I appreciate you putting my mind at ease on if I'm actually going to be able to utilize my new graphics card
