1070 bottleneck with i5-3570 (non-k)?

How much would you think a 1070 would bottleneck with an i5-3570 @3.4ghz compared to a balanced setup? Considering either an entire platform upgrade to an i5-6600k, but 1070 prices are relatively low where I live right now so that's tempting as well. All input would be greatly appreciated!

the i5 7500 bottlenecks the gtx 970 in overwatch, casing stuttering in game. this also happens in For Honor. I would say yeas, the 1070 would be bottlenecked by the 3570.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yeah it will definitely bottleneck a 1070 at 1080p and probably even 1440p. I would either go for a well rounded upgrade or a cheaper card. If you could find a 3770K that might give you another year on your system... probably wouldn’t recommend it though

Yeah, that's going to be a bottleneck. Try scaling the res to 4k rather than 1080p and work out the perf difference to what your supposed to be getting.

The CPU is only going to remain temporarily, I just wanted to know how much of bottleneck there would be compared to a normal 1070 while I plan my upgrade.

To they used a 1080 Ti. Maybe their review of going from a i7-2600K to an i7-8700k with an 1080 Ti can give you some ideas of bottlenecks. :)

Depends on the game and res. As one of 1080’s destroyed my 3770k on 1080p or 1440.

Depends on the game and resolution, at higher resolution and ingame setting, you'd make the GPU work harder and eliminate the CPU bottleneck to a certain extend. As long as the CPU can punch out playable framerate, then you should be good. That's my philosophy anyway, look at my sig, I have three pretty good GPU's in three separate rigs, would my framerate and benchmarks be better with, say, a Ryzen 2700X or an i7 9700K? You betcha!

 

I game at 3440x1440, max ingame setting.....so I do make my VEGA 64 and RTX 2080 Ti work pretty hard, and as long as the i7 4770K and i7 3960X can gimme playable and smooth framerate, I don't really care (saves me money because I don;t feel a need to upgrade). Even my VEGA 64 can't handle max ingame setting for some games at this setting and resolution. My GTX 1080 is hooked up to my 65" 4K TV, so running games at 4K, I'd have to lower ingame setting to a mix of medium and high to get smooth framerate....and it's couple with an even older i7 2600K (@4.2ghz though). As long as TS games at 1440K and higher, I don't see any issue with bottlenecks.

 

@grss1982Damn dude, looking at your sig, I see the TNT Riva and MX440, I kinda recall owning the Riva and the MX 400 years ago......damn, this takes me back to the good old days of GF4 Ti series and my very first kickbutt card, the much revered ATi 9700Pro 128MB (yes, I had the awesome Abit GF4 4200 Ti, but it and its bigger siblings were thoroughly owned by the 9700 Pro)
