Hi all, does the CPU affect the score a GPU get in a dedicated GPU benchmark? for example, userbenchmark and unigine superposition?
 
No, your 3600 is not the reason for the difference. One thing could be that you are going up against GPUs that are overclocked. So that may be a reason for the lower score, but it should not be a 10-15% difference. There may be something else going on.

It could be a driver issue. Did you upgrade to a new GPU? If so, then you should do a clean uninstall of the drivers. Use the DDU tool below in safemode to remove the drivers, then download the current ones from Nvidia.

If this is a new rig, then go to userbenchmark.com and run a bench. Leave a link here with the results.

Yes, a CPU will impact the GPU score on a benchmark. But most GPU benchmarks are not CPU heavy, so the impact wont be as great as it would be in certain CPU heavy games.
i benchmarked my rtx 2070 super on superposition and i got 5500 (average for an rtx 2070 non super!!!) while similar gpus were getting a minimum of 6800, so i thought maybe my cpu was the reason(i have an amd ryzen 5 3600)
