Xeon E5-2687W v3 and GeForce GTX 1060 3GB - General Tasks - 1280 × 800 (WXGA)

Bottleneck calculation for Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.

Configuration

Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 is processor manufactured by Intel and launched in Q4 2014 . It's using LGA2011-v3 socket. It has 10 cores and 20 threads with clock of 3.1 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 3.5 GHz . This processor is used in Server devices and can consume up to 160 watts of power .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is graphic card manufactured by NVIDIA and launched in Q3 2016 . It's using PCIe 3.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 1708 MHz and 3072 MB (3GB) of memory . It supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.5 . This graphic card is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 120 watts of power .


Calculator result

Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB will work great together on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 0.2% of processor bottleneck . Everything less than 5% should not be concerned major bottleneck.

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB will be utilized 99.8% .

Processor bottleneck is worse, than graphic card bottleneck, because utilization of your processor will be on maximum and it will throttle other programs that are ran in background. Also you won't experience maximal performances that your graphic card offers.

Solutions

You can resolve this by upgrading your processor or by downgrading your graphic card. Downgrading your graphic card doesn't make much sense and in that case is better to leave current graphic card in you computer.
