Solved Theoretical Question about GPU bottlenecks Tags: GPUs Bottleneck CPUs Dual Core Graphics Last response: December 23, 2013 3:56 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Dwardu December 23, 2013 3:52:13 AM Hypothetical situation... Lets say, I had a PC with an Intel Celeron Dual Core and a GTX 660 I am capped in <some game> at 30 fps because CPU is slow and cant utilize my 660 entirely Instead of upgrading my CPU as I should, I upgrade my video card What happens? Will my game perform better, worse or exactly the same? Please do not tell me "This is stupid." because I am fully aware of this. I'm just curious, in theory, what would happen.
