How can I improve my i7-6700k bottleneck

 Share

Hi!

 

I've upgraded from my GTX 970 to an RTX 2080 Super lately. I've got into playing Warzone (really great game imo) but I have been experiencing a serious bottleneck because of my stock clocked i7-6700k. I get around 90fps on 1080p Ultra Settings which is way too low for an RTX 2080 Super I believe. Also, I have around 30% GPU and always 100% CPU in game which leads me to believe my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU (which is kinda normal for that setup I have). But shouldn't it be possible to still get constant 144fps or do I really need to overclock/buy a new CPU to get that nice 144fps? Changing the game settings to the lowest really doesnt help either, still 90fps. I already tried DDU, didn't change much. Benchmarks like TimeSpy and Furmark show normal results for my GPU and Cinebench also shows normal results for my CPU.

 

Any ideas on what I can do to improve the fps other than buying a new CPU?

 

Edit:

My specs:

Graphics card: RTX 2080 Super

Processor: Intel Core i7-6700k

Ram: 32gb 2133mhz

Mainboard: Asus Z170-K

Power supply: be quiet! s8 600W

very simple, right click on desktop, open nvidia control panel, Manage 3d Settings, Low Latency Mode set to ULTRA, boom ur CPU usage  is relived and ur frametimes improved

Sounds like a weirdly bad bottleneck for a 6700K tbh.

If you've got a decent cooler on CPU, try at least a slight overclock. Also, try increasing the render scale to something like 133% for example - this will render the game at 1440p which should load the GPU more, therefore easing some of the load off of the CPU.

Decreasing the visual settings will most likely not help at all with the framerate as it'd just be lessening the load on the GPU, but not on the CPU.

My friend has the same set up but with a 2080Ti, and he's getting 120fps on a much higher resolution monitor.

What has he overclocked his cpu to?

Render scale to 133% somehow doesn't really change anything in terms of CPU Load/FPS for me

This somehow puts more load on my cpu and my framerate gets worse

I think he's right around 5ghz

Alright, you know which cooler he has? Also, do you think it could be my RAM being clocked at 2133mhz holding back my performance?

Some kind of Corsair, I'm not sure which, but unless he keeps it at the highest performance setting his pc overheats. 

 

Wouldn't hurt to try overclocking it. You'll definitely gain performance.
