Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and GeForce RTX 3070 - General Tasks - 1280 × 800 (WXGA)

Bottleneck calculation for AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.


AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is processor manufactured by AMD and launched in Q1 2020 . It's using sTRX4 socket. It has 64 cores and 128 threads with clock of 2.9 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 4.3 GHz . This processor is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 280 watts of power .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 is graphic card manufactured by NVIDIA and launched in Q4 2020 . It's using PCIe 4.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 1500 MHz and 8192 MB (8GB) of memory . It supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.6 . This graphic card is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 220 watts of power .

Calculator result

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 is too weak for AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 15.3% of graphic card bottleneck .

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

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X will be utilized 84.7% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 will be utilized 100.0% .

Graphic card bottleneck is better, than processor bottleneck, because utilization of your graphic card will be on maximum and you will experience maximal performances that your graphic card offers. Also your processor can handle some other programs in background because it won't be maximally utilized.


You can resolve this by upgrading your graphic card or by downgrading your processor. Downgrading your processor doesn't make much sense and in that case is better to leave current processor in you computer, because you can run more background task that won't interupt your gaming experience.
