Question I expected my CPU to bottleneck my gpu but neither usage goes to 100%

Hi, I got a rtx 2070 super for my build today and it arrived which actually gave a lovely boost in recording games and games over my old card but I watched a few benchmarks.
On farcry 5, at 1080p max I get 60 fps average with dips to 40 in quite intensive scenes and some scenes around 80 which is a bit underwheming unless it's the game itself
I was expecting my cpu to bottleneck somewhat but what catches my eye is none of my cores, cpu usage or gpu usage go to 100% at 1080p so i was wondering if there's a trick to squeeze out anymore performance or will i have to get a full new cpu to get the most out of my card.
Specs:
Ryzen 5 1600 @ Stock
16GBs of 2400 MHz Corsair RAM
KFA2 RTX 2070 Super
600w Corsair CX600M
AsRock AB350M HDV
Some gameplay to compare:

(1080p 60fps)
(I get around 40-50 fps max at 4k with supersampling)
