I9 10850K @5.1GHz vs I7 9800x @3.8GHz, both paired with a 3080 playing on 1080. What would the difference in frames be you think?

I'm asking based on this video:

 

I currently have the i7 9800x paired with a 1070 and as far as I can tell the 1070 is the bottleneck so I want to upgrade. Looking at this video I would like the 3080 for 1080p gaming since I aim to get 144fps at max settings on as many games as possible. But compared to the video above, how many more frames would the 10850k pull? Would my cpu bottleneck the 3080?

The i9 will pull out more fps due to higher clock speed, but your i7 X will be able to handle the 3080 just fine

Also, don't buy 3080 to play at 1080, it's a waste of money

In the video, it shows that it's not a waste. It clearly performs better than the 2070 super it is compared to in the video, especially with ray tracing enabled. I don't mind it being a little overkill, because heavier games will come around in the future, and I will probably upgrade to a 1440p 144hz screen in the future. But I get your point.

 

But when you say the I9  will pull more frames, how much more do you think? For instance, in the video you see BFV running at over 160fps. I know it's impossible to truelly know until I would have tested it myself, but how much  fps would I probably pull? Would it be close, like 150fps? Or far fewer, like 120fps?

It's gonna be somewhere around 5 to 10 fps, honestly difference is minimal because both are based on the same architecture

Oh, really? That's crazy good and a very welcome surprise! Alright, I'll get that upgrade then!
