R5 1600 bottleneck 1080ti?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My friend wants to swap his i5 6600k for r5 1600/1600x, because he bought 1080ti and 6600k makes some games stutter...

Is it worth to go for r5 1600?

What games?

Why not upgrade the BIOS (assuming Z170 board) and drop in a 7700K instead of swapping the mobo and CPU?

@chexor ^  Whilst the 1600 won't bottleneck it you can't beat a 7700k in current games and this would be the same price as a 1600 + mobo

If he plans on running 120Hz+ monitor then 7700k will be better but otherwise the R5 1600 is completely fine CPU with the 1080ti.

Would at 1080p, would be cheaper and better though to update BIOS and buy 7700k.

I agree. I would just go for the 7700k if I already had motherboard for it. Don't forget to update BIOS before the CPU change.

Is it worth to go for r5 1600?

1.Why not BIOS update and just drop in a 7700k instead?

2.It won't bottleneck with a R5 1600

3.Maybe because you/he already have a good Z170 mobo (it indicates me that you/he have a Z series mobo because of the K series CPU (overclockable)) with a 6600k,and a 7700k can be dropped into that mobo and u will have no bottleneck,but Ryzen 5 1600 and B350 mobo is same price as a 7700k (maybe less) but by that way,you will have some "High end but useless hardware" or later you/he can reuse the 6600k and mobo (so not a problem,just gonna need to bring out the $$$ for a GPU for a 6600k :P ) for a second system,really depends on you/your friend ,and if you want a cheaper i7,a 6700k will do.a i7 is better in gaming than a 1600
