Solved Is my CPU bottlenecking my GPU? Tags: Battlefield CPUs Games Graphics GPUs Bottleneck Last response: February 25, 2014 1:51 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Miskr February 25, 2014 12:50:53 AM Hello everyone. I recently bought a new GPU, and every game runs fine at 1080p, besides Battlefield 3. My specs are: Intel Core i3 3240 @ 3.40GHz Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology RAM 6.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz Motherboard PEGATRON CORPORATION 2AD5 (SOCKET 0) Graphics VE228 (1920x1080@60Hz) 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (Gigabyte) Are any of these parts bottlenecking my GPU? In Bf3, It is fine at 1080p ultra, until I go into Multiplayer with 64 people, whenever I look at all the other players it drops to about 45 - 50 fps. I also checked the usage on Task manager, and when I play, my CPU usage is at about 90- 95% Thankyou all for your help!

Since your CPU only has 2 cores, I would say your CPU is bottlenecking you in that game specifically.
