Overwatch 1440p cpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I generally play Overwatch on my pc but when I built my pc I was misinformed when I thought that my i5 6600k would make the cut. I am peaking at 90% usage on my cpu and am only getting around 90 to 110 frames. I've got a 1070 GPU that is not passing the 35% usage mark. What cpu should I upgrade to so I can get my full 144hz that my monitor is capable of? I am wanting to be able to run max settings on OW and other blizzard games.

iirc all the zen+ and zen 2 cpus get over 144fps on 1% lows, just make sure u have 6cores and 12 threads.

Something off there. I just upgraded from an i5 4690k + R9 390 and that pushed Overwatch at a solid 120-144, depending what refresh I have my panel at. (I'd set it for 120hz while streaming to keep the math simple for 30/60 Fps streams & playback recordings)

Your hardware should easily do that, especially for Overwatch.
