Is my CPU bottlenecking my GTX1070?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all!

I recently upgraded from a GTX670 to a GTX1070. So far, I am loving the difference! There is however one little problem.. If I compare my framerates to the online benchmarks, I notice that my framerates are much slower compared to them.

For example, many benchmarks claim that the first level of Doom (2016) run at 100-120 FPS for entire level. I used the same settings, but I average at 80FPS. Dont get me wrong, those frames are great, but still 20-40 FPS lower then others. What is going on? My CPU does often say its being used at 100%

My specs:

i5-3270k (Overclocked to 4,0Ghz)
12GB DDR3 G.skill Sniper Edition
Asus Asrock Z77 Extreme3
Nvidia Geforce GTX1070 (Slightly overclocked)

Do you mean 3570K? If so, try to overclock it to 4.5Ghz or so.

You should not have a bottle neck with a overclocked 3570k. IF you can get it up to around 4.3 is you will be fine.

Every system is different also. Unless you are comparing your rig ti an identical setup, its really apples and oranges.

`

3570k* yes.

I will try to push my CPU to 4,5Ghz. My Corsair H100i might handle that. Will update!

Online statistics of GPU performance are overblown. Many review sites get magic results that you won't get on your average system.
For example they may run the best CPU, RAM there is at the moment and with OC to remove CPU and other bottlenecks.
3570K at 4.0GHz should be more than enough.

It can be some setting hidden somewhere, different OS, driver, driver settings, clock difference = for nGreedia cooling performance issues, ...

If your CPU is reading 100% then it is more than likely your CPU holding you back slightly. You should have no trouble getting your processor to 4.5 with your cooler. What is your gpu usage at?
