Is Your Gaming Rig Being Bottlenecked??

Want to investigate the bottlenecks in my rig? My guess would be... EVERYTHING.

 

And bruh, which GT 1030 are you using? The DDR4 model of the GDDR5 one? Because that makes huge difference. The DDR4 version is basically a paper weight. 

I have an i7 6700k with a gpu from PNY which is a GTX 1070 GDDR5 8gb and also I have 8gb of ram at 3200. Also I play game like rust. Please help me I don't really like how I have annoying speed bumps.

So I noticed my cpu load gets very high reaching 100% often. I'm sure there is a bottleneck but I don't know how to fix it? I play on a monitor Acer Predator 2k resolution at 144hz. I tend to play games on high-ultra settings.

PC Specs:

MSI b250 m3 gaming motherboard

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 founder's edition

CPU: Intel i7-7700k @ 4.2GHz

RAM: Kingston HyperX 2400 MHz (16Gb)

CPU Cooling: Corsair H80i v2

PSU: 800W+(I think its 800 or 850 but definitely not below 800W)

I have 2 SSDs SanDisk which runs my windows OS and my games are installing in a Samsung 850 EVO. Thanks in advance

I'm having a XPS-15 with external graphics dock.

The CPU is i9-8950HK, the GPU is GIGABYTE VEGA 64, slightly overclocked.

I'm using this to play AAA games at high settings on a 1080p 144hz panel. (I prefer quality more than frame rate)

Also, I may use this setup to play VR in the future.

Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks in advance.

TB3 is limited to 4 PCI-E lanes, where a high end GPU would be notably bottlenecked at anything below 8X (8 PCI-E lanes). So you're kind of stuck with the performance you have :(

Yeah, that's definitely some bottleneck there.

I'm having memory clock fluctuate wildly during certain games (e.g. RainbowSIX Siege), but not all of them (e.g. Battlefield 1 & 5). Since I don't mind the noise and know HBM memories are sensitive to temperatures, I've set very aggressive fan curves and maximized the power limit. Snipaste_2019-02-17_19-06-06.png.1cdce553be2ce37e2ff4788db34d6ec2.pngSnipaste_2019-02-18_12-01-55.thumb.png.9d81d77da049463c64a97ad3ee364fdf.png

What could be the problem here..?

Hmmm... I would imagine the card doesn't like being throttled to 4 lanes and is freaking out as it sees a load, but is trying to send more data faster than PCI-E 4X can take. Is it causing stuttering?

Yes but only in some games, not all of them. For example RainbowSix is having stuttering. Overwatch is having unstable frame rate varies from mid-90 all the way to around 140, but no stuttering. However, Battlefield 1&5 is running perfectly fine at around 80 FPS under maximum settings.

OW is weird, cap it at 100 FPS.

 

As for R6S... im not sure. Try turning on VSync.

So I just watched this and thought I would ask about it. I'm running a Zotac 1080 mini and have a ryzen 3 2200G. Is this a good pairing or should I consider a different cpu? For gaming.

Hey, I would like to know where the bottleneck in my system lies. (It’s my graphics cards, but I’m wondering how much of a difference upgrading will make)

 

I have:

-An i9 9900k

- (2x) GeForce GTX 980ti classified edition

-16 Gb 3000Mhz RAM

-Samsung 750 evo SSD

-1440p 144hz monitor

 

My scenario is this:

I have been trying to get into streaming lately, and I originally had a 6700K, however I upgraded because even streaming CSGO was so much of a hit to performance that I was not receiving 144 FPS at max settings. While the 9900k solved that problem for CSGO, I have now started to see other problems with stream performance while in games like Overwatch, Rainbow Six or Apex Legends. It’s confusing though because I am not having any performance issues on my end while gaming. The thing I thought to do is to encode using x264 instead of NVENC, but while this fixes the issue of stream performance in Overwatch, Apex legends and rainbow six still have issues with the stream performance. My CPU is only using about 4% (according to streamlabs) at the heaviest intensity of encoding. So where is the bottleneckint occurring? The 2 980tis?

 

Lastly is my question on how much an upgrade would help. If I bought a 2080ti, would I suddenly not see any problem with any game, or would it only make it marginally better? If it’s only a marginal difference, maybe upgrading isn’t worth it, but for good performance on stream, it definitely is to me.

 

If you want to check my stream performance to help your answer out; my twitch username is jarboy2, and I’ve saved my most recent streams in order to show how they suffer when I switch to Rainbow Six and Apex Legends.

 

Thanks so much for any help!

I've often wondered if my PC has a bottleneck, since I'm running a 1080ti with a ryzen 1700x at 1440p. At the time though it made a lot of sense, since an 8700k and 1080 was about the same price as a 1700x and a 1080 ti.


PC Specs:

CPU: AMD 1700x Cooler: Corsair H100i V2 Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VI Hero RAM: 4 * 8GB G.Skill RGB DDR4 Graphics: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB Case: Fractal Design Meshify C PSU: EVGA 750w G3 Monitors: Dell SG2716DG +  2x Dell U2515H

Hey, i plan on building this. Does any of you see any problems with this?

Caste: NZXT s340 Elite

Colling: 2x corsair SP140 in the front to (hopefully) get a positive case pressure. But with the limited airflow of the s340 Elite AND the dust net we´ll see

1x the standard exhaust fan who was shipped with the case and 1x NZXT Kraken M.22 mounted as the top exhaust.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 (not sure wether or not i should pick the x model, or which mhz value)

Motherboard: ASRock B450 Steel Legend

RAM: G.Skill DIMM 16GB DDR4 2666

GPU: MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming 8G (1620MHZ version, the 1830MHZ version apparently isnt worth it?)

 

Please tell me your thoughts. My goal is to have a future proof rig that i can play top games on for the next 3-4 years for under 1500€.

I have a GTX 1070 8GB and an i5 8400, I'm beginning to think that my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU, I am currently using the setup for gaming and or streaming anyone that could help clear this up?

So I have a computer that I built a while back with a ryzen 5 1600 processor and a gtx 1080 primarily for gaming and everything was running fine which was expected and I recently upgraded my graphics card to an rtx 2080ti and in games I get about the same performance as I did with the 1080 but am able to play games with the render at 200% with no degradation of my frame rate as opposed to running games at 100% render so is this a bottle neck of the cpu where I just can’t get higher frame rates then I could before due to my cpu not being able to keep up or do I just expect too much from my computer hardware, also the game that I tested the render in was destiny 2 at ultra settings running 70-80 FPS whether I was at 100% render or 200%

I tried to see if I have some bottleneck in my pc build. I played CS:GO and cpu had 60-70% usage, same as the gpu. But when I played GTAV my cpu locked at 100% while my gpu didn't get over 5%. Is this a bottleneck??

My specs: Gtx 1060, Intel Core I5 - 4460, 2x4gb DDR3, Asus ROG Maximus VII Ranger; motherboard.

Looking for some advice, I am looking at two different configurations for a new rig
The first is an i7-8750H, with GTX 1050ti for graphics
The other is an i5-8300H, with GTX 1060 for graphics

I'm wondering what the balance would look like for not only gaming, but running Virtual Machines, programming in Java and Python, etc.
I am a CyberSec major, and I feel like I should know these things, but I don't. (maybe it's because i haven't taken hardware classes yet)

Thanks in advance
