Which is the bottleneck?
Recently bought this machine with all intentions to upgrade it further down the line here and there. Been playing mostly GTA V and the game does run well.
However, there can be some FPS drops now and again. This is not always but can be noticeable. On the settings that I currently have can average 60fps at 1080p. The CPU will sit at 99-100 usage whilst the GPU will be around 80%. Would the CPU be causing the FPS dips? I have been unsure with a lot of people saying the i5 6400 is enough for today’s titles but others say the 1060 3GB is too low?
I was also wondering if it could be because it’s installed on a 500GB mechanical drive rather than an SSD? I believe I have added the rig details but if nobody can see them then I’ll add them in 😊
Just want pointing in the right direction before spending £200 on new hardware.
Intel Core i5 6400 'Skylake'
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Zotac
SanDisk X400 M.2 2280
Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
