will a 4.7GHz 4790K bottleneck an RTX 2080?

I been eyeballing the EVGA RTX 2080 FTW3 Ultra for a while now and since its tax season im planning to grab it but a friend brought up a good point, my system is fairly old and im a bit worried id be wasting my money because of a bottleneck. I currently have my 4790K OC to 4.7GHz and temps are fine at load so ill be running it 24/7 at these clocks for atleast a year or 2, with that said you think it will bottleneck it badly enough not to warrant grabbing the 2080?

Alternatively i can grab a 9900K 16gb ram and a nice motherboard for about the same price id spend on the 2080 ($850~)and wait on the RTX 2080 for a year or 2. share your thoughts.

It may bottleneck a bit but not drastically enough to warrant not getting it IMO shurgs at that speed seems it should handle it ok.... I dont tinker too much with Intel these days

It would likely be limiting the max fps, but probably not bottlenecking unless you're playing at 1080p which is unlikely. Alternatively, looking at your current setup, you already have a 1080 running at 2.1GHz which is a damn good card on its own. I think the money would be better spent on the platform upgrade. The RTX cards are really not worth their pricetag.

actually i would be playing at 1080P, im looking for maxed out settings with ray tracing with AA DLSS looks like it would be useful for me. this 1080 is good but metro exodus especially caspian sea the fps tanks to 20 fps in places its clearly a GPU limitation load is pegged at 99%, but also i am getting a cpu bottleneck in some places with lots of enemy AI slave ship especially gpu load dropped to 83% but fps was over 130 so no big deal. I do agree pricing on RTX is insane. $850 for a 1080Ti replacement is not good but the primary reason i was looking to replace my 1080 is metro exodus and because warranty runs out in about a year and change on my 1080 and i dont like not having a warranty if something happens and a 10 year warranty on a 2080 looks darn good.

Originally i was going to go with Ryzen 3 and grab a 2080 the year after but i havent heard anything about that since December so i dont think we'll be seeing that anytime soon.

im not too sure what that is to be honest. i was under the impression current cards were 7nm. i wonder how long that would be.

Current RTX 2000 series are 12nm. They were supposed to be 10nm but that did not happen and this is why the performance-jump is not that big compared to 1000 series. 1080 Ti generally beats 2070 by 5-10%. It should have been the other way around.

I hope Nvidia will refresh Turing at 7nm late this year, depending on what AMD puts out.
