5700xt bottlenecked by ryzen 5 2600?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im planning in buying a 5700xt when the AIB models are released, but have no plans in upgrading my cpu (R5 2600). Im not the kind of person who plays on 1080p lowest settings for the sake of dem frames, so i think that will help me here. If im playing 1440p max settings, will it be worth upgrading my cpu? I was planning on waiting til 4th gen ryzen is releases before upgrading or even until the 5th gen that leaves AM4 behind. If the performance benefits are decent though (in the realm of 10% or so), then i may consider an upgrade for my cpu as well. I have 16gb of 3200mhz CL16 ram as i know ryzen likes fast ram.

what GPU have you currently got?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Your CPU can handle a lot more GPU horsepower for sure.
