Question Can my I5-7600 handle an RTX2060 6GB?

Hello,
I was just warned about bottlenecking, right before I was going to buy an RTX2060 6GB. (I didn't know about this)

The only test I can find for my CPU is with an RTX2080, and apparently it's a 33% bottleneck. Anyone have any more information on the matter? Any suggestions?

Thanks

The bottleneck will definitely happen if you play at 1080p and expect to get more than 60-75FPS for a 120-144Hz monitor in CPU intensive games.

For example, Battlefield 1 is CPU intensive. I have an i7 6700k at stock speeds. In the harder moments for the CPU when playing at 1080p, it is almost reaching 100% usage (getting around 100FPS), but my GTX 1070 doesn't go under 100% usage so there's no bottleneck at all, a perfect match.

The GTX 2060 is as powerful a a 1070Ti, which was around a 33% more powerful than the 1070. This means that playing at 1080p to Battlefield 1, the stressful situations would carry a CPU bottleneck and bring down the performance to the same around 100FPS maximum.

So yes, playing Battlefield 1 at 1080p the i5-7600 would even bottleneck a GTX 1070. But rendering at 1440p the GPU would be much more stressed and the performance probably well paired. But I don't know if you are going to play Battlefield, any CPU intensive games or on which resolutions. Give us son info about these points :)

Thank you for the quick reply.
For now I'm planning on just playing at 1080p, and getting a steady 60+ fps.
My monitor is only 60hz but I want to buy a 144hz in the future.

Also the only game I'm playing at the moment is Apex Legends, and I will definitely play Arma 4 when it comes out, but thats not useful information I guess :)
