Will it Bottleneck

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I am deciding on a CPU and GPU right now and can't pick.

I am think a Nvidia RTX 3080 but can't choose a CPU. I was thinking a Ryzen 9 3900X or a Ryzen 9 3950X but don't know if it will bottleneck or just be too powerful for the GPU.

Please Help.

Without any use case there's no such thing as a bottleneck when the computer is just sitting there doing nothing

resolution? refresh rate? games?


also, if you're going from a 3900X to a 3950X, the bottleneck won't change. 12 cores is already too much for gaming, and the single threaded performance is identical.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
