Tags: GPUs Bottleneck CPUs Last response: December 21, 2013 9:45 AM in CPUs Share davide09 December 21, 2013 9:15:54 AM I am planning to upgrade from 6670 to 7870 and unsure whether my CPU would bottleneck the GPU. More about : 4170 cpu bottleneck saphire 7870 2gb gpu epicoverclock a b à CPUs December 21, 2013 9:29:14 AM yes it will bottleneck when playing cpu demanding games like battlefeld 3, 4, starcraft, crysis 2/3, you will get a bit of stutering m 0 l Best solution JuX a b à CPUs December 21, 2013 9:33:40 AM Are you kidding me? That's a quad core 4.2 GHz processor.. Shouldn't bottleneck that card.

Shouldn't bottleneck that card. fx-4170 has 4 cores but only 2 modules which in my opinion it doesnt make it a true quad core my quad core i5 760 @3.2ghz is a very little behind fx 4170 4.2ghz in gaming. m 0 l epicoverclock a b à CPUs December 21, 2013 9:38:59 AM the higher the clock speed doenst necessarily mean better performance. For example intel cpus at lower clock speed will outperform AMD cpus at higher clock speeds because of their IPC. m 0 l JuX a b à CPUs December 21, 2013 9:45:07 AM Not the best quad core architecture, I know. But, I've checked and, paired with his GPU it will run BF4 on recommended settings, with slightly lower score than his GPU. Meaning they actually match each other nicely. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedHow many watts does the MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB gpu need?
