Hi guys i have a simple question i have core i5 8400 and a gtx 1660, i have ran the timespy 3dmark results and my gpu got 6246 graphics score after overclocking which is better than 50% benchmarks according to timespy. However my CPU got 3911 which is very low comparing to i7 8700k 7922 score. Do you have any advice through which i can improve my CPU score and reduce this bottleneck.

thanks, i believe i have to upgrade my CPU to get better performance
Yes, you will have to upgrade the CPU for getting a better score but for performance on games the CPU is fine. The 1660 will be your let down regarding FPS on high end games. So for games like ac odyssey keep graphic settings at a fair 60 fps.

Hi guys thanks for your replies, i searched online about how i can improve my CPU performance and i saw that CPU power settings in control panel can be turned to maximum performance to improve CPU performance. After doing that i ran the benchmark again and my CPU amazingly gave a score of 5144 increasing from 3911 before.

This the new test results: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/38187519?
