Will Ryzen 3600 CPU bottleneck 6800XT 1440p or 4K

TB_GB

Hi I have a 6800XT on order to replace my 2060 & I'm worried about CPU bottleneck & I'm considering replacing my Ryzen 3600 CPU with something in the 5000 series & probably wouldn't be willing to spend more than £200 is it worth an upgrade? as I've just spent £375 on my GPU & £120 on a 850 watt Platinum 

My PC AMD Ryzen 3600 AMD Wraith Stealth, Nvidia 2060, Lian-Li LANCOOL II .

It'll be fine at 1440p and 4K, though your GPU may have issues at 4K.

 

Enjoy the machine, just play at 1440p 🙂

maybe you can try to pick up a used 5800x3d when the time is right, right now I would say it's fine

You may have CPU bottleneck at 1440p in some games, not so much in 4K but then the 6800XT may be a bit weak
