Bottleneck calculation for Intel Core i7-6950X and NVIDIA Quadro P4000 with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.


Intel Core i7-6950X is processor manufactured by Intel and launched in Q2 2016 . It's using LGA2011-v3 socket. It has 10 cores and 20 threads with clock of 3 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 4 GHz . This processor is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 140 watts of power .

NVIDIA Quadro P4000 is graphic card manufactured by NVIDIA and launched in Q1 2017 . It's using PCIe 3.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 1227 MHz and 8192 MB (8GB) of memory . It supports DirectX 12.1 and OpenGL 4.5 . This graphic card is used in Workstation devices and can consume up to 105 watts of power .

Calculator result

Intel Core i7-6950X and NVIDIA Quadro P4000 will work great together on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 0.4% of processor bottleneck . Everything less than 5% should not be concerned major bottleneck.

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor Intel Core i7-6950X will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card NVIDIA Quadro P4000 will be utilized 99.6% .

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.


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.
