Core i9-11900K and GeForce RTX 3070 - General Tasks - 1280 × 800 (WXGA)

Bottleneck calculation for Intel Core i9-11900K and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 with screen resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels for General Tasks.

Configuration

Intel Core i9-11900K is processor manufactured by Intel and launched in Q1 2021 . It's using FCLGA1200 socket. It has 8 cores and 16 threads with clock of 3.5 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 5.2 GHz . This processor is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 125 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

Intel Core i9-11900K is too weak for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 11.8% 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 Intel Core i9-11900K will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 will be utilized 88.2% .

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.
