wingman99 The i7 6700k will have about 3%-6% FPS deficit at 1440p with RTX GTX 1080ti. If you can increase the i7 6700k clock speed to 4.8GHz there won't be any deficit in FPS at even 1080p 144Hz.

Here is a 3% deficit comparison for i7 7700k witch is close to the i7 6700k and the GTX 1080ti is close to the RTX 2080 super. LINK: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/i...-9700k/14.html

Here is a 6% deficit comparison for i3 8350k witch is a 4 core close to the i7 6700k and RTX 2080ti is close to the RTX 2080 super. LINK: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/a...-3900x/16.html

BroadPwns It was playable, never said it was not. But the bottleneck was so hard, GPU usage kept being below 90% in 1080p and hovered around 92 in 1440p, in 4k it was mostly 95-98%.

And the CPU got destroyed in:
- Battlefield V
- Assassins Creed Odyssey.


So please, don't spread misinformation.

Can't comment on any game other than BFV, but it was entirely playable on near maxed settings at 1440p with my old 6700 @ 4.6.

I did get gains going to an i9, but it wasn't even in the realm of unplayable on a 6700.

WannaBeOCer I didn't notice a difference after upgrading from the 6700k to my 9900k in gaming. Save your money and wait for Ocean Cove in 2022. Which motherboard do you have? You might be able to mod it to run a 9900k like I did.

icold Delid your cpu and push around to 4.8GHZ and should be fine

J7SC ...as others stated above, it depends to some extent on the games; and it also depends on your memory sub-system and even how much bloatware you got running while gaming. But in my experience, bottleneck was a minor issue when I got two Aorus 2080 Ti last December and tested each of them first in my test bench before mounting them into a new 16c build. The test bench is a 6700K @ 4.8 giggles with dual channel DDR4 / 3866 and Z170 SOC Force mobo.

It probably is bottlenecking the 2080. How much it is being bottlenecked will depend on the game you are playing. If you are tying to play games at 60hz on 1440p I wouldn't even worry about it. You will most likely never see frame rate dip below 60 fps regardless of what you do. If you are playing at 120hz, then you might want to look at the situation more carefully.

Just to expand on this, 6700k vs 9900k (both @ 5Ghz) will vary depending on games in terms of a bottleneck on a 2070 or 2080. For instance, OP plays @ 1440p so the gap will be about 1-10% depending. Got to factor in cost as well. Is 10%'ish worth having to buy a new motherboard, CPU, and possibly faster ram? It can easily add up to $1K for 10%.
