Ryzen 9 3900 and Radeon RX 6800 XT - General Tasks - 1280 × 800 (WXGA)

Bottleneck calculation for AMD Ryzen 9 3900 and AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.

Configuration

AMD Ryzen 9 3900 is processor manufactured by AMD and launched in Q4 2019 . It's using AM4 socket. It has 12 cores and 24 threads with clock of 3.1 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 4.3 GHz . This processor is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 65 watts of power .

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is graphic card manufactured by AMD and launched in Q4 2020 . It's using PCIe 4.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 2015 MHz and 16384 MB (16GB) of memory . It supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.6 . This graphic card is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 300 watts of power .


Calculator result

AMD Ryzen 9 3900 is too weak for AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 9.6% of processor bottleneck .

When playing games your graphic card won't perform on maximum possible performances (won't be utilized to the maximum), because you processor won't process and deliver data fast enough. This theoretically means that utilization of you processor will be on maximum and the potencial of graphic card will not be completely used.

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor AMD Ryzen 9 3900 will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT will be utilized 90.4% .

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.
