Do i have the biggest bottleneck in this boards?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

3950x with radeon 7850

 

reason: waiting for 3080 so i've reused the gpu from my old computer

 

and I think games will run pretty good even in this old GPU, im coming from q6660, that was a big bottleneck for this card already

If you take out the videocard you'll create an even bigger bottleneck. Your CPU can do a lot, but you don't have a GPU for video output. Essentially creating an infinite bottleneck.

Warning: the universe around your PC might implode.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

I mean.... yes. A 7850 likely won’t even play modern games. But, it is what it is. Lol. Until you get a new GPU, you will be relocated to CS, team fortress, and games of that era and graphical fidelity.

I really wanted this to read "Until you get a new GPU you will be relocated to CS team canteen, to make the tea" 

 

Hang in there. You never know, by the time the 3080 is released Radeon might have got there shiz together and have something to compete at half the price.

There are many use cases where your PC probably doesn't bottleneck at all so I would say no.

 

All PCs have bottlenecks and they vary depending on the task at hand. 
 

Just having a very powerful CPU puts you in a great place to avoid lots of potential bottlenecks.
