CPU bottleneck

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Finally decided to pick a ryzen 9 3950x, but the bottleneck calculator says that RX 5700Xt is way too weak comparing the cpu

What's the most fit gpu for this beast, and what else can make a good pair with it?

There is ONLY A FIT GPU FOR ...... YOUR USAGE STYLES.

Games you play / want to play?

Resolutions...High Refresh 1080/1440  or 4K?

What Monitor do you have to run with?

The 5700XT and above is overkill for 1080p.

 

It depends what YOU want to do...

Elaborate please..

And don't use those calculators, ask here before bothering with them.


Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

I agree. The 3950x can handle like duel rtx 2080 tis before there is a big cpu bottleneck but for me i have an RTX 2080 super paired with my 3950x and i get over 100fps at 1440p on all games that i play and the bottleneck calculator says my gpu is also too week

Indeed my dude, apologize for my newbie statement.

I'm into fps games like cod warzone, and looking forward to build a setup that is 5 years future-proof. and play upcoming games at decent performance.

Really wanna display a 144hz 1440p and due to my limited knowledge in this field I only picked a gpu with fine specs and overkill for a certain period of time.

For what I have, its all I need for now...

I Max most games at 1080p with a GTX1070, it would also say its too weak for a 3950x.

 

1440p 150fps is out of my wheelhouse for speculation I'll let someone else handle it.

 

But Youtube searching certain GPUs would help gain info.

 

2070 Super vs 5700XT 1440p

2060 Super vs 5700XT 1440p

That kinda searching

Sounds about right, I've been reading a lot that the RX 5700xt is capable enough to display 1440p

Those calculators are just looking at gaming performance and are comparing relative performance of the CPU vs the GPU. You can't have a GPU that is "too weak" for a CPU. It just doesn't work that way. What it's telling you is that the chosen CPU is way overkill for gaming alone on that graphics card. However, people don't just game on PCs typically, and presumably if you're getting a 3950x, you plan on using that for something other than gaming. If you are only concerned with gaming, then all you realistically need is a 3600. Anything over that is a waste.

The 5600XT is capable enough to display 1440p, even though it's advertised as a 1080p card. I run WQHD on Ultra with mine, though not at 144hz. The 5700XT should get you there just fine, though.

It is indeed for gaming only, but wouldn't 3950x perform better than the 3600 playing those cpu/gpu intensive games? I was thinking by getting the 3950x I'm just gonna have to upgrade the video card over the years.

What cpu/gpu will pair well to play fps games around 144hz at mid to high setting and sustain much time? In terms of overkill.

And Sorry for my cliche question

3950x for gaming is a waste of money and your setup will never be 5 years future proof.

my 3years old current settup  is doing just fine on playing games, league of legends + valorant ultra att 120-150 fps, Fortnite high settings at 100fps and pretty much every games is playable with a lil graphic settings tweak,. so your statement is pretty much debatable.

Well then there is no point to upgrade yet.
