Upgrading R7 2700x

Hi everyone

Is it wise to upgrade Ryzen 7 2700x CPU to either 12700k or 5800x? Would this give any significant effect on FPS in 1440p gaming? What about a bottleneck in such an upgrade? Does my current CPU use all RTX2080 power or not?

My current build:

RTX 2080 gaming x trio 

DDR4 16 GB RAM 3200 mhz 

Mobo: AB350 gaming 3

 

This is currently my first PC, built in early 2019, hardware wasn't upgraded yet. Didn't upgrade my GPU for obvious reasons. MOBO was the cheapest solution for this build, there was no reason to buy anything more expensive.

 

Thank you

Do you have any issue pushing 100fps or something? The 2700x is a fine cpu for games still. Could use msi afterburner to see how much your gpu is loaded during games.

 

Most higher end graphics games should have no issue maxing that 2080 out with that cpu. Esports stuff will of course rarely do that and even with a 12900k overclocked to the max you'd have a hard time maxing a 2080 out in a lot of em 😛

As a rule of thumb, if it ain't broke don't fix it.  If the games are running at a good framerate just game on.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

1440p will see marginal increase, 5% at most. Spending $300 for a whole new CPU or even more if going Intel just to get 10fps more isn't smart. For 4k there would be no change at all.
