My CPU has pretty much always struggled at keeping up with games. Everything will run fine and smooth, good temps, good usage percentages, but the moment I start up any game i'm being throttled at 100%. Now I just assumed my CPU was just low end by now and maybe I should upgrade, Ill watch some benchmark videos to prove my hypothesis. But I was wrong. Other people with a PC spec'd almost exactly like mine are doing SIGNIFICANTLY better. During COD Warzone, 1080p and the very lowest settings ill get about 45 fps. While this PC is getting 60-70 fps on high settings.
