Will an i3 12100F bottleneck the an RX 6600?

Go to solution Solved by RONOTHAN##,

Not at all. The RX 6600 is about the same performance as a GTX 1080 (give or take), and it was very common 5 years ago to run a GTX 1080 with a 7700k. The 12100f is much faster than a 7700k, even overclocked. Saying a 12100F would bottleneck a RX 6600 would be implying that common setup from ~5 years ago was heavily CPU bottlenecked, which it was not. 

The title is pretty self explanatory, but this build is for my friend, and the i3 12100F is the one of the best bang-for-ya-buck Alder Lake CPU, so I want to know if it will bottleneck a good value, RX 6600? The 6600 I’m looking at is this one:

Will the bottleneck be too big?

how are you doing today
