Will this CPU bottleneck a GTX 580 Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Bottleneck AMD Phenom CPUs Graphics Last response: December 21, 2011 8:59 PM in Graphics & Displays Share realrhyno December 21, 2011 6:01:53 PM An AMD Phenom II 1100T @ 3.8 Ghz. Just wondering.. More about : cpu bottleneck gtx 580 ringzero December 21, 2011 6:26:08 PM That CPU is inferior compared to the strength of the GTX 580. Of the two, the CPU will cause your greatest limitations. So if you want to maximize your experience with the 580, you'll want to upgrade your CPU. I think you'll want to go Intel for that. That said, it's still a decent CPU. I'd be happy with that setup if I were you. geofelt a c 181 U Graphics card a b À AMD a c 192 à CPUs December 21, 2011 6:43:38 PM Bottleneck is a term I do not much like. It implies that somehow you will get reduced performance with the upgrade. In truth, upgradeing to a GTX580 will improve your fps and improve your minimum frame rates. The only question is, by how much. If your games are multi core enabled, (which is why you picked a 6 core amd cpu over an ivy bridge cpu in the first place) , then you will do better than you think. If your games use the typical 2/3 cores, then you may want to rethink the amd cpu for gaming.

I disagree with that statement. A bottleneck implies that you will not get the full performance from the graphics card due to the CPU not being fast enough. megagabobe1 a b U Graphics card December 21, 2011 7:35:17 PM the phenom ii x6 oc to 4ghz perfoms better in gaming than a i7 920 oc to 4ghz, you will not have any bottleneck like many people will tell you megagabobe1 a b U Graphics card December 21, 2011 7:39:33 PM here is my source http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/amd_10... simon12 a b U Graphics card a b À AMD a c 96 à CPUs December 21, 2011 8:05:18 PM It depends totally what resolution you are using. hotthree December 21, 2011 8:06:34 PM Agree w/ Mega...its a pretty good cpu and performs well.

You're talking about a CPU running at 3.8Ghz wirh 6 cores. It ain't gonna bottleneck. dark_lord69 December 21, 2011 8:59:34 PM Kkkk1 said:Oh good at last someone with some common sense.
