Calculator result

AMD FirePro W4170M is too weak for Intel Pentium G3220T on 1920 × 1080 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 38.6% 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 Intel Pentium G3220T will be utilized 61.4% and graphic card AMD FirePro W4170M 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.

Solutions

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.

Reducing the bottleneck by changing the screen resolution

If you are experiencing processor bottleneck, increasing your resolution will have a high impact on your graphic card and it's utilization will increase. Also when you are experiencing graphic card bottleneck, lowering your resolution will allow your graphic card to process more data and achieve higher frames per second. More frames per second will put higher impact on your processor because it needs to prepare more data for your graphic card. You can reduce this bottleneck by changing your screen resolution to one of these resolutions.
