Does core i3 2120 bottleneck Hd7790

Ive bought core i3 2120 and HD 7790. Are they a good combo for each other? Does i3 bottleneck 7790 or the other way around?

  1. Simple answer is no, but some games need 4 cores for good operation. If you didn't already have your CPU I would recommend the FX 6300 which is a much better CPU.
  2. You will not have any problems.

    The i3 u have is hyperthreaded that means it has 2 more logical core in addition to 2 physical cores
    A logical core is 60% equal to a physical core
    So u r just 50-55% behind the i5

    As far as quad core amd is concerned they are at par with ur i3

    And as far as bttleneckin is concerned the i3 will not bottleck the card

    Yeah i will after you answer my last question. Previously i had a dual core 2.8 GHz E5500 i upgraded to a core i3 . I felt some lag at high settings in Hitman absolution. was it due to E5500? Did it bottleneck HD7790 ?
  7. Yes it surely was due to e5500 it has been bttleneckin 7790
