CPU bottleneck at 1080p

Ok, so I bet this question has been asked before, but thought I'd ask anyway. I currently have a R5 3600 and a GTX 1070. The gtx 1070 has been great for years, but I noticed I am starting to turn things down to low to get a solid 80 fps which is what I would want with my 144hz monitor. For example, I play a lot of COD MW, and at medium high settings, when action gets crazy my frames dip down to the 40s. I guess I'll just get to the question. I want to upgrade to a 3070 but I think I'll have huge bottleneck at 1080p with that much power. So would it be a bad idea to have an R5 3600 and RTX 3070 at 1080p 144hz? Is the 3070 way overkill?? Should I opt for a rtx 2070 or wait for the 3060 instead? I plan to not upgrade for 3-5 years. Thank you for reading!

While the 1070 can run out of legs at higher details in newer games I doubt it gets to 40fps typically on other systems and in CODMW, mine happily sat 75-100fps dependimg on the game modes.

I had mine OCd to 2025Mhz Core and +200VRAM.

Wish I still had mine to show you...

 

Pretty sure intensive Warzone moments I was sitting 70-85fps ranges with 85-90fps being my avg, and 90-130 avg to max fps ranges. With a 4c8t 4.7Ghz 4790K.

 

The only footage I have is when I tested my i7 2600 nonK with 1600Mhz RAM (16GB) in Dualchannel +GTX1070 OC

50fps+ it would seem... so something must be up with your machine OR.. recent updates made it much harder to run vs before.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

the 3600 has about a 25-30% bottleneck compared to comet lake at 1080p, so make sure it's not a cpu bottleneck already around 80-90fps before upgrading.

GPU bottlenecking got so overblown. It isn't like you run a 2 core i3 with 3070 and get massive shuttering. In the case of 3600 compares to 9900K/10900K. You get 140fps instead of 160fps. So what? The games will remain smooth and consistent.

 

I'll go further to pair a 3600 and a 3080 for 1080p without worrying. Although 3080 for 1080p is a waste of money in my opinion.

Do you remember what settings you were running with? That might be my problem.

I always run these MP based games at Lowest relative (competition) settings with Medium Textures.
Off or Low otherwise. There are just some parts in Warzone's map that just kill performance on various CPU/RAM/GPU inner workings.
