Calculator result

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 is too weak for Intel Core i9-7960X on 1920 × 1080 pixels screen resolution for Battlefield V.

This configuration has 20.7% 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 playing Battlefield V game, processor Intel Core i9-7960X will be utilized 79.3% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 will be utilized 100.0% .

Utilization of Intel Core i9-7960X and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 in Battlefield V with 1920 × 1080 (FHD (1080p)) resolution)

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.
