Core i9-7960X and RTX A6000 - No Mans Sky - 1920 × 1080 (FHD (1080p))

Bottleneck calculation for Intel Core i9-7960X and NVIDIA RTX A6000 with screen resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels for No Mans Sky.

Configuration

Intel Core i9-7960X is processor manufactured by Intel and launched in Q4 2017 . It's using FCLGA2066 socket. It has 16 cores and 32 threads with clock of 2.8 GHz that can turbo clock itself to 4.2 GHz . This processor is used in Desktop devices and can consume up to 165 watts of power .

NVIDIA RTX A6000 is graphic card manufactured by NVIDIA and launched in Q1 2021 . It's using PCIe 4.0 x16 bus type. It has core clock of 1410 MHz and 49152 MB (48GB) of memory . It supports OpenGL 4.6 . This graphic card is used in Workstation devices and can consume up to 300 watts of power .


Calculator result

Intel Core i9-7960X is too weak for NVIDIA RTX A6000 on 1920 × 1080 pixels screen resolution for No Mans Sky.

This configuration has 24.8% 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 playing No Mans Sky game, processor Intel Core i9-7960X will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card NVIDIA RTX A6000 will be utilized 75.2% .

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.
