Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello I have a few questions,  i have an 6950x at 4.5ghz stable paired with an strix oc 1080ti. and I playing on a 3440x1440p 144hz monitor.  I ordered an asus strix oC 3080 so my question is will my system then bottleneck? 
I play now for example cod everything maxed out only for shadows on low and getting 80-100 fps  my cpu is running around 30/40%  and my gpu 97/100% 


hope Someone can help me out and give me a good explanations 

 

my system specs are 

asus rampage 10 edition with ek monoblock

Intel i7 6950x @4.5ghz stable 

corsair vengeance lpx 8x8gb @3200mhz

corsair rm1000i 

onboard corsair mp510 1tb 

asus hyper m.2 x16 card v2 4x mp510 1tb raid

You ordered it already, so use it and monitor CPU and GPU usage and let us know !

 

At that resolution it should be fine, you will get a bit less FPS than newest i7/i9 but that is normal. Once you see your results just compare to some youtube benchmarks for same gpu with a 10900k

 

Cheers

Yes definitely bottlenecked. Linus said it in his last review video.

 

Edit: he said that if you don't pair it with the most high end Gaming cpu you might be leaving a lot of performance on the table.

 

We both have cpus from the same gen although yours is much more powerful than my 6700k we still lag behind.


My PC is a fast boyo:

6700K - 32GB - 1080 - 256GB EVO

^^You don't need more info than this right?^^

It does not bottleneck much

These are tests done on 10 and 20 series GPUs, with the 3000 series GPUs I believe the bottlenecking gap will worsen since CPU now needs to catch up to the GPU

You play in a higher resolution than 1080p

 

You play at a higher resolution than 1440p

 

The higher the resolution, the less CPU power it requires, since GPU can only delivers less frames since high resolution is more demanding...

 

So you will be fine at your resolution. Unless you want that extra 10%frames (around that most likely) you should be fine with this CPU.

Does it matter if there is so called bottlenecking as long as you get frame rates you can enjoy.

agree.. if I get 144fps on highest settings I’m gonne be happy with it maybe raytracing on would be more fun
