More about 3570k bottleneck 6670
  1. Most definitely not.
  2. Absolutely not. The 6670 is not really that powerful.

    Can you maybe give more information on what you are planning to purchase and why?
  3. For games...it is more likely for 6670 to bottleneck 3570k...not the other way around

  6. okay, can the 6670 max out on dota 2 and will it bottleneck the i5 3570k. I will be buying the new 8xxx series when it comes out. (Not straight away, probably in 3 months after it gets cheaper)

    yes most defintly dota 2, LOL is more cpu intensive and the 3570k is more than enough for both games i don't know about ultra setting but easily high with 60 fps
