Ryzen 7 3700x paired with a GTX 1080...?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have searched all over, for answers to this, but i've seen mixed answers. 


How well will a GTX 1080 work with a Ryzen 7 3700x in 1080p? 

I went to bottlenecker to check what the bottleneck was, and it was saying my GPU is underpowered, by like a lot.  (pictured below)

Should I invest in a new GPU or will it be fine enough? I play a lot of games, and i'm a video editor.  Also, my current processor is a Ryzen 5 1600, was it a reasonable upgrade?

You'll always have a bottleneck somewhere. That set up is perfectly fine.

I wouldn't get the 3700x though. Just hold on until the next gen comes out.

I've never really trusted Bottleneck tester as is sometimes tells you that "you have bad performance" in terms of bottlenecks when in reality the system in question is just fine. In this case a 1080 paired with a 3700X will be just fine.


Please ping or quote me if you want a response. :)

Hello,

 

Bottleneck checkers are pure trash.

 

Your 1080p will be very good with the 3700x.

I mean, saying the GPU is underpowered sort of means nothing. Yes.... it is underpowered, when compared to a RTX 2080 or a 2080 ti, or a 1080 ti. But for 1080p gaming, it’s overkill.

 

The idea of a bottleneck is largely misunderstood. That chart is likely saying “compared to the max potential of the CPU, the 1080 is not going to give you the full potential the CPU has to offer”, which is obviously true. A RTX 2080 ti would provide you more FPS. But this is just useful information. That doesn’t mean the 1080 is a bad option, it just means “yes, faster options exist”.

Thank you guys. Qualmed my fears that I fucked up big time.  I already bought the processor, was doing research on it for a while, but never checked this (somehow) until now. A million thank yous!

3700x is a monster for the price, really good cpu.

 

All I can say is I have a vega 64 so a bit stronger then a Gtx 1080, My vega is underwater and oc to the max it can go.

 

My R51600 with 4ghz oc even at 1440p sometimes is a bottleneck. 

 

With a 3700x that wont hapend, I will upgrade also as they are droping in price.

I run a 1080 Ti with a 3700X at 1440p, and sometimes with my 1080p monitor. Performance is damn near flawless.

I definitely think you'll be fine with a 1080.
