Is Your Gaming Rig Being Bottlenecked??

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm new here.

 

I Have the MSI GT 72VR 7RE Dominator Pro  I7 7700 32GB RAM and a GTX1070 and i would like to know if my masive frame rate drops (for example BF1 on Ultra from 90 ish drops like to 30 or even 20)  are related with some kind of spontaneous Bottlenecking at some point.

Hey @LinusTech , on this subject. How about a video explaining this in your usual fashion. I'm referring to the bit "collecting the information", as you've already explained v-sync in a techquicky.

 

https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/894384-stutters-framedrops-lag-how-to-provide-detailed-information-with-your-bottleneck-question-as-well-as-a-few-solutions/

 

You have a better ability than me to explain it in layman's terms. Plus your video's reach further than my signature does. That and I want to stop posting it every single WHY IS MY PC STUTTERING or BOTTLENECKING topic. 

 

Maybe make it a techquicky, I don't care. Teach people how to diagnose a system with Afterburner, so they come to the forum with a more informed question.

I'm planning to build a rig with 16gb of ddr4 ram, gtx 1070 8gb, and a Intel core i5-8500 6 core cpu. Will there be any bottlenecking in my new rig?

Very similar to my rig. When I check task manager most modern games use about 50-70% resources with no noticeable lag or frame drops. BTW this is gaming at 1080p 60fps

Hello, newbie here.

 

thebottlenecker.com says Graphic card and processor will work great together

Not really sure if this is true because in some games I get really low fps,

in PUBG sometimes 40 - 50 fps or other games don't seem to run that well too.

 

Does my CPU bottleneck my GPU? or any other part in my rig?

 

Specs:

 

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (GP104-200)

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K @3.50 GHz (overclocked it to 4.20 GHz)

RAM: 4x Kingston 99U5471-020.A00LF 4 GB DDR3-1333

 

Drives:

Thanks for any help in advance.

Which, I've noted, many of the people who throw around the word "bottleneck" tend to be have very elitist and fanboyish attitudes. Especially given how anti-AMD a lot of people were (especially on this forum...) prior to Ryzen launching. That something better is available seemed more important than whether the existing AMD processors or used hardware was still workable. And that something else being more important than the processor and graphics card seemed unfathomable.

And that's what the term "bottlenecking" has now devolved into; a scapegoat used by elitists and especially fanboys who don't know any better but want to appear as if they know stuff when in reality, they're making themselves look even dumber.

 

I'm frankly unimpressed by any statement along the lines of "Hurrr, Ryzen is only good at bottlenecking high-end GPUs hurrr" or "You need a 7980XE or you'll bottleneck your 1080 Ti to crap".

 

Here's the hard truth. You can't totally eliminate bottlenecks. While you can reduce the potential bottleneck between CPU and GPU, you'll still leave other bottlenecks in, like a storage I/O bottleneck, RAM bottleneck, or even the game you're running on, where some games don't really take much advantage of everything your system offers. And you just simply can't get rid of them.

 

Instead of worrying about bottlenecks, worry about the performance you'll get out of a hardware combo. Ideally, you shouldn't really be pairing an 8700K or R7 2700X with a GT 1030 (especially the super-gimped DDR4 "Fuck you" edition) and an FX-4350 or Pentium with a GTX 1070. But take a more reasonable combo like a Core i7 7700K and a GTX 1070. It'll hold you back a little in titles that benefit a ton from multithreaded workloads but if you're still achieving very playable results at your desired settings, does it really seem all that worrying?

 

In short, don't fret too much out of bottlenecks. If you're building, focus on what's the best you can do out of your budget. And please focus on the PSU. I've seen too many cases of PSUs exploding and even one burning a house down.

I have a Core i5 2500K, no laughing, with a small overclock and a GTX1060 and haven't really noticed a problem with bottlenecking in games or any other applications. I'm more inclined to think that the bottleneck in my system is the 500GB mechanical HDD.

What to know if my rig is bottlenecked too much.

 

I have an AMD fx-4300 cpu and Rx570 4gb gpu.

Is my cpu bottlenecking my gpu?

I use this rig for gaming only. The settings I play most of the AAA title games would be 1080p High settings.

Hope to get an answer and please don't my poor English 😁.

What games are you playing in particular?

Hmmmm

This might explain my performance isseus

I play alot of Farming Simulator 17 and have upgraded to a Nvidia Geforce GTX1070, but I'm still running my old motherboard and CPU setup.
My currents setup is:
Intel Core i5 2500K (socket 1155 LGA)
MB: Asus P8H67-V
16GB DDR3
GPU Gigabyte Nvidia GTX1070 8GB

and i run this on a 21:9 3440x1440 Dell monitor

I was hoping this would power the new edition of the Farming Simulator Game in November as well. But maybe its time for the old CPU to go?

Any advice on this?
http://thebottlenecker.com gives me the option for Intel Core i5-8600K.

Yeah a new(er) CPU and motherboard would help alleviate things a bit. Keep in mind most common modern systems run on DDR4, so you'd be looking at a new system

do you have a framerate number while you're in farming simulator? if it's about 50 to 70fps you should really do fine ._.

I just bought a new system based on mostly working with my high end Red camera and doing color grading, editing (Adobe Premiere / Avid) and some AE post production. But I'm also using this for some gaming as it's my home company. Here's my specs:

 

https://www.inet.se/kundvagn/visa/11672574/2017-07-25-13-16

(It's in Swedish, but I think the names of the components will show it all)

 

Now, there's some changes, I changed out the Intel SSD to a Samsung Pro 1TB. The Noctua fans will replace the original fans on the water cooling and the water cooling is changed to a NZXT Kraken X62 280mm instead, due to the case not working with the Corsair. 6Tb will be set in a RAID-0 for performance, while using the TB3 card for external drives and backups. I'm also using my previous Titan X Maxwell in this rig, however, I might sell it and get a newer one if there's bottlenecking in this rig. 

 

It's the company (Inet) that builds the computer, so I'm no expert in this. I have however researched as much as I can about all the components. I'm figuring out if I could overclock the CPU somewhat to get a bit more on each core, but I'm not sure if that works. How will this system work? It's not paid yet and they are building it right now, so would be nice to know if there's any things to reconsider in the last minute. 

what kind of footage format are you working with? are they in cineform or other formats? most of the time you'd be looking at CPU for most codecs, but your CPU should do fine.

You should make a new thread in New Builds and Planning, you'd get more visibility there. https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/

 

also are there any GPU-based plugins you're aware of?

So I built a new system at the beginning of the summer and reused my old GPU as a placeholder until I had funds to get a new one. Currently I'm using a ryzen 1600 and an R7 250x ( I know its old). My method for saving money for this is simple, I use the acorns app that does a "keep the change" transfer for me to an account accruing about $30-$50 bucks a month depending on my spending habits.  Currently I'm setting at $170 USD. So around October I could buy a 1060, which I think is the best option to make a balanced system. 

In your opinion is there a lesser card that would be balanced like a rx 580? is the price point worth it?

  1. Good on you!
  2. Should do fine in most medium settings. which games are you looking to play?

And the million dollar question, 1160/2060 is the "mid-tier" upgrade card is rumored to  come out when I'm ready to buy. So what are the specs on that thing predicted to be and price?

What games are you looking to play and what programs are you looking to run? the 4770k might do fairly okay for another year or 3, so

So I've got an old system I built back in 2011 ish. It still runs games great, but I'm wanting to get into a "hyperthreaded" cpu since it's just a quad. The platform consists of an AMD Phenom II 965BE (OC'd to 3.7 gHz) with 16g of corsair vengeance RAM, a 250g Samsung Evo SSD, and a Gigabyte R9 390 8gb.

 

I was hoping to upgrade to a threadripper (because why not, and 1/2 the price of an I7 still) and build another 5+ year capable rig. Obviously RAM and GPU availability are keeping me from upgrading, but I'd still like to. Would the R9 390 work okay on this setup? Assuming I get 16gb of decent RAM to go with the Threadripper? Maybe go with the 3.8Ghz 1900x instead of the 1950X?

However silly this sounds, its not. Its very real.

 

I have Dell Inspiron 7560 (i7[7500u]/8Gb Ram/128GbM.2/1TB HDD/NVDIA GeForce 940MX).

 

I used it for games, like CS Go etc. and Adobe Premier for editing my youtube videos (which is painfully slow but it is what it is).

 

Lately I've been experiencing undesirable performance.

 

My question is that my ram is only 8 gb is that causing bottleneck? should I upgrade to 16 gb?

 

What will be the best upgrade to my laptop to give it a mega boost in performance.

 

Thanks for helping me out.

(Small time Indian youtuber: look out for dbrand GRIP iPhone X drop test) 

(Silly is answering 32 quotes at once, LOL)

two things: look into 16GB RAM and a fairly well-sized SSD (say let's start with 0.5TB). either of them are contributing to read times. (RAM for playback, HDD for file handling and exporting)

 

if you feel the export times are a bit long, having a CPU with more cores will help. I was about to say your GPU should do fine if you're not using too many effects or layers, but I forget you're using a laptop (EDIT: I mean like you can't possibly upgrade the CPU or GPU on it), so your next step would be working towards a better PC/Laptop. Save up towards a new system and make a new thread in New Builds and Planning whenever you're ready https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/

Hey people, I know the forums are overrun with plebs like me asking the same question over and over, but oh well here goes.

 

Cpu: core i7 3930k @3.2ghz

Gpu: asus strix 1060 6gb

Ram: 16gb DDR3

Motherboard : gigabyte GA-X79-UD3

 

My main game is black desert online , a massive mmrpg with pretty stunning graphics that is also known for it's garbage optimization. It is very CPU intensive as it's littered with NPCs, buildings and individual models of blades of grass as well as particle effects and such. When my character isn't moving and there's no too much activity around from NPCs or other players, I run at around 80-90 fps at 1440p, however if I start actually playing the game producing particle effects and moving the camera thus loading and unloading mathings rapidly, it usually drops below 60 for a while. This all has lead me to believe there is CPU bottleneck but as I am not an expert by any means,I really can't judge. Could overclocking my CPU to 4ghz net me better results? I know for a fact I can pull that off with my Noctua nh-d15 cooler

 

mmm, particle effects slowdown is harder to pinpoint. sometimes it's the CPU not accounting for the particles quick enough. sometimes it the GPU having to shade a lot of effects. sometimes it's the game that's not too optimised for it.

there's a reason reviewers stick to specific games when reviewing hardware, and that's due to the consistent and not too varied "load" between light scenes and sudden demanding detail

 

try turning off/down the particle effects if you can and see if it runs better. if it's somewhat the same then you can start doing things like overclocking and whatnot. you should do fine when you're stable around 60 or 120 fps.

Is it better for me to buy one more GTX 970 (SLI) or buy GTX 1070 in term of bottleneck or anything else ?
 

Please Advise and Thank You

One GPU. SLI only works when it does (that's where driver update comes in), and two GPUs usually does 180% ish rather than 200%, again, when it works.

i run pubg high settings on G4560 paired with gtx1060  is this bad ?

what are your RAM and storage specs? PUGB is pretty object0intensive (like GTA) so my first guess would point to the CPU

  • If you're not stuttering or noticing it, don't look too hard into it and turn off the frame counter.
  • if you're looking to speed up a very long waiting process, post what you're wanting to do, and the specs of the entire system (CPU; GPU; RAM; Motherboard; Storage setup (including any NAS you have))
  • if your game is stuttering, or if you're looking to increase your FPS (out of the cinematic or even powerpoint slide framerate), please post:
    • System specs (CPU; GPU; RAM; Motherboard; Storage setup)
    • your graphics settings (of the game)
    • any specific points where the game slows. can be a level or a short period or even the loading screen.
  • if you're feeling shocks when you touch your PC, PLEASE DO NOT OPEN YOUR POWER SUPPLY. Make a new thread for help.
  • if this is your first time here, Hello! do have a look around in the forum outside this thread! https://linustechtips.com/main/
    there's more to bottlenecks, like watercooling and phones and wireless electricity! keep that mind open and ask when you need!

Well my system is primarily used for gaming but I do a bit of work in photoshop as well and will be doing some 3D work on it at some point, the specs are:

 

CPU: Core i5-2500K

GPU: GTX 1060

RAM: 8GB DDR3

M/B: ASUS P8P67

Storage: Seagate 500GB mechanical HDD

 

I'm inclined to think that HDD is bottlenecking the system at this point due to long load times in games and I will be upgrading to an SSD or two at some point anyway and I'm also looking at upgrading the RAM as well.

One GPU. SLI only works when it does (that's where driver update comes in), and two GPUs usually does 180% ish rather than 200%, again, when it works.

 

so is it better for me to sold my gtx 970 and buy just 1 gpu ?
im only using my pc for gaming (like Dota 2, FF-XV, Dying Light, The Forest, Monster Hunter&Fallout 76 (when it released)) and watch some movie without editing anything.

yeah long loading times does point to the HDD. save up for a well-sized SSD if you can. look into RAID for multiple HDDs next time.

 

other than that, you should already do fine in photoshop, other than RAM (especially when you have chrome in the background for image reference). Once you're about to start 3D work consider getting more RAM, since you'll be opening both PS and your 3D program at the same time. Start with 16GB, plan for 32GB next time afterwards when projects start getting bigger.

 

you should already do fine for most games in medium with a 1060. however if your 3D project has a large polycount or if you're working into large 3D sculpting work (usually in ZBrush or Sculptris) then the VRAM capacity in your GPU will matter, because that's where all the graphical data is.

 

Start with the SSD first. I'm not too inclined to suggest buying more RAM when it's for a DDR3 system (I'd rather you put it towards the RAM budget for a more recent system).

 

(which 3D program is this by the way?)

It's 3Ds Max which was running on this system before. I have checked up on RAM for this system and I can get more if I need to but I understand what you're saying. I will probably keep the 500GB HDD as a scratch disk for Photoshop and temporary working disk for 3Ds Max.

yes, especially when you don't want to spend the time troubleshooting or waiting it out for SLI-related problems in freshly released games. also not all programs do SLI (outside of games, and some games don't SLI well too so)

 

you should do fine after you managed to get the 1070 (or equivalent). take your time to sell the 970. keeping a level head is important.

Yeah a new(er) CPU and motherboard would help alleviate things a bit. Keep in mind most common modern systems run on DDR4, so you'd be looking at a new system

do you have a framerate number while you're in farming simulator? if it's about 50 to 70fps you should really do fine ._.

 

 (do also make a new thread in New Builds and Planning if you decide to start planning your upgrade https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/)

 

 

I'm currently getting 40-60FPS but not on the highest settings, the games sometimes drops hard in framerate if there are alot of objects/vehicles present. Also somehow there is alot of horizontal tearing, the refresh rate for the screen is setup correctly and I do not have this problem in games like Starcraft 2.
Also, looking at the big changes to the engine and additions in the upcoming game. I'm somewhat doubtfull the system will still handle the game at this resolution.
I'll start a new thread once the upgrade starts. I'm hoping to re-use as much as possible parts(PSU/GPU/SSD's/Case/CPU cooler).

oh okay I just had a look at the game images, and it looks pretty grassy there o_o

thing now is choosing between a higher clockspeed or more cores, but I don't think I can find any solid answers on this. sorry ,_,

check the graphics settings in-game. you should be looking for vsync or vertical sync. turn that on

Thank you! I shall give that a try. I'll look into choosing a CPU trough the builders forum. I think my budget only lets me get an i5 of some sorts. But the suggested 6core one from thebottlenecker website looks fine.
Again thank you for the reply's!
