Im planning on purchasing a Asus laptop witha a intel core i5 3337u at 1.8 GHz and it has a geforce gt 740m and i wold like it for some occasional gaming (far cry3, bf3, and WarZ) so I would like to know if this cpu is going to bottleneck the gpu.
Probably not, since it has hyperthreading it will have 2 extra virtual cores. (4 in total) and it boost up to 2.7. However, in battlefield 3, a CPU intensive game, there will most likely be a bottleneck. I recommend to buy your own parts and build a desktop. Or put more money into a gaming laptop.
