UWQHD cpu performance

Hello
Looking into upgrading my CPU from ryzen 1700 to a 3000 series main purpose is gaming.
Just wondering if CPU performance matters at all when running 3440x1440 resolution ? otherwise I'll look into putting that money into GPU.

I'm struggling to find any benchmarks at that resolution tested across different CPU's

Any thoughts?
Thanks. ????

UWQHD sits between 1440p and 4k in terms of GPU grunt required (closer to 1440p)

Upgrading from a 1700 to a 3000 series CPU isn't going to change much bar a few games that may be overly CPU intensive (some MMO's and RTS games), as you're almost always GPU bound at that resolution.

So unless there are some specific games you play more often or focus on that would benefit and or fall into that category (again not many games are CPU bound at that resolution), your money would be better spent on a faster GPU.

so do you think I should go from 1700 to 3600 or from vega64 to 5700XT if I can only chose 1 to upgrade?

If you don't mind sharing a list of the, say top 10, games you play I could offer a better opinion.

I usually just play PUBG for multiplayer and for single player games I play whatever latest titles get released, don't really have a list I guess...

1700 to 3700X+. 1800X vs 3700X is 80% vs 100% performance. (stock snail 1700 is 73%)
Vega64 to 5700XT seems pointless. 84% vs 100%.

Keep everything as is if you don't need the extra performance. 3440x1440 is not going to magically run 2x faster on a 5700XT nor any faster CPU. You need the larger Navi which is 2020.
1700 to 3700X+ for gaming... you may notice if you run higher fps.

It's really tough to find any recent benchmark info on PUBG that includes V64 using the same test system but, in regards to a GPU upgrade V64 to 5700XT you're looking at roughly 20-30% increase in FPS (judging by what I could find on 1080p ultra benchmarks). As far as all newer games being released, more and more seem to be scaling slightly better with more threads, but in the short term the 3600 with PBO/OC to ~4.2 seems keep up with the 3700x; no one can tell you how this will change a few months down the road.

At higher resolutions, like I mentioned earlier, the cpu is less of a bottleneck and therefor you're going to get a lot less out of a CPU upgrade at your resolution. So essentially any GPU upgrade will outweigh the CPU upgrade, but 5700XT vs V64, V64 is only ~26% slower so again not a massive step up. AIB cards might be enough to bring the 5700XT near parity with R7 which would be more like a 30-35% performance gap.

If all you do is game, and you're struggling to stay around your monitors refresh rate for avg FPS, I'd upgrade your GPU. If you prefer AMD your only option is to go with the 5700XT. If you use your PC for work or any other sort of CPU intensive application I'd upgrade my cpu, and preferably save up for a 3700x in your scenario.

TLDR:

GPU upgrade if only gaming
CPU upgrade if doing a combination of PC tasks

Or you can use a GPU for processing videos, adding post processing effects (denoising, etc.) and encoding them. That is one thing beside gaming where GPUs get loaded fully and is fairly common.

I've seen a few recent benchmarks with overclocked 5700XT's reaching RTX2080 performance (1080Ti)
Given that my V64 is a refernce model a decent AIB 5700XT could be just worth getting, runs cooler, quieter and ~25% faster on average.

Thanks to all who posted and provided some help, appreciate your time

If your 1700 is stock try oc'ing it to 3.8GHz and see if it helps boost fps. Especially minimums. Also, GEN1 and GEN1+ benefit using faster ram with tight timings. At least 3266 CL14. Ideal is 3466 CL14. So, try 3.8GHz first without touching voltage. If it does not boot, up the vcore to 1.38v. Should be plenty.
