Am I getting bottlenecking from my display?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’m new at all this and the only reason I kinda believe it is what’s happening is bc of a YouTube video, but I’m not completely sure. 
to start off, all drivers are up date.

my specs: r5 1600, msi rx Radeon 480, 8 gigs of ddr4 3200mhz hyperz. And 500 watt psu. 
my monitor is a sayon 720p 60 hertz, 

temps: for gpu goes max at like 50-60c and cpu goes max at 60c 

Game example: fortnite, my gpu usage was 40-50% and my cpu was weird, some threads were on 8% while others where on where on 20-28% my settings on fortnite are Comp, not high settings, not bc the gpu cant, more like bc I prefer it like that lol. If you could help me, that would be awesome, if you need more info in benchmarks etc, lmk, thank you for whoever reads this

Nah you good. Its just that your current specs can literally easily run almost anything in 1080p. Though at 720p you can have the settings a bit higher. Though thats completely up to you.


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

CURRENT PC SPECS    

CPU             Ryzen 5 3600 (Formerly Ryzen 3 1200)

GPU             : ASUS RX 580 Dual OC (Formerly ASUS GTX 1060 but it got corroded for some odd reasons)

GPU COOOER      : ID Cooling Frostflow 120 VGA (Stock cooler overheats even when undervolted :()

MOBO            : MSI B350m Bazooka

MEMORY          Team Group Elite TUF DDR4 3200 Mhz CL 16
STORAGE         : Seagate Baracudda 1TB and Kingston SSD
PSU             : Thermaltake Lite power 550W (Gonna change soon as i dont trust this)
CASE            : Rakk Anyag Frost
CPU COOLER      : ID-Cooling SE 207
CASE FANS       : Mix of ID cooling fans, Corsair fans and Rakk Ounos (planned change to ID Cooling)

MOUSE           : Logitech G502 Hero

If you are happy with your current monitor then no, it's not a bottleneck.

144hz monitor might help you a little in fortnite and other online games.

That's pretty typical as the game engines usually have 1 or 2 cores do most of the heavy lifting.

Hopefully the new console generation will change this and game engines start to distribute the load more evenly across the cores and threads.
