Tags: Graphics Cards Bottleneck Brother Phenom Graphics Last response: October 18, 2012 8:51 PM in Graphics & Displays Share vilenjan Graphics card Authority October 18, 2012 6:18:44 PM My brother is running an OCed Phenom II 955 at 3.8 Ghz. Currently he is using a 6850. Will a 7850 be bottleneck by the cpu in any way?

Will a 7850 be bottleneck by the cpu in any way? Nope hes good for now anything higher than like a 7870 would bottleneck | Report abuse disolitude October 18, 2012 8:51:48 PM Depends on game. Some CPU intensive games would suffer with the Phenom II (Guild Wars 2 on max settings for example). Others like Battlefield 3 won't bottleneck even with a GTX680/HD 7970. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>What will bottleneck an OCed 955?> Related ressources: ForumWill my OCed 955 BE Bottleneck an HD7970 ?
