Yes, from the GPU. but only in the sense that you wont get as much from your cpu in games as you would with for example rtx 3060.

You might actually even gain fps from disabling SMT , meaning it only uses 6 cores instead of 6c12threads. This is for purely gaming and if your streaming then keep SMT on in bios. This is game based.

fortnite, csgo, overwatch , valorant on 1080p l your fine with 1660ti /1070 +

If you plan on doing high / ultra non competitive settings then you need to go with better gpu
I dont play GPU intensive game. Mostly VALORANT where I play on LOW settings for highest FPS possible. I plan to upgrade GPU eventually in future, but I went for CPU first
 
There is no such thing as "bottlenecking"
If, by that, you mean that upgrading a cpu or graphics card can
somehow lower your performance or FPS.
A better term might be limiting factor.
That is where adding more cpu or gpu becomes increasingly
less effective.

Some games are cpu limited, others are graphics limited.
Try your games with the new processor and see how you do.

What was your old processor?
To get some idea of what the 5600x might do,
Try this simple test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
This makes the graphics card loaf a bit.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu was already strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you were likely more cpu limited and that your cpu upgrade will do you some good.

Most games are graphics limited. Particularly at higher resolutions.
But, most games rely on the single thread performance of the master thread.
The 19% ipc boost of the 5000 series ryzens will do an excellent job on that aspect.

I have 2700x and Im struggling to have 200fps in VALORANT. Ive compared benchmarks for valorant with 2700x and 5600x and incease in FPS was drastic, 2700x could hold around 230 with 2080 super while 5600x held over 400 with 2080 super.
