I'm trying to decide if putting an RX-5500 XT in an older i7-6700 machine for somebody would present a noticeable CPU bottleneck @ 1080p. Keeping in mind that the PCIe 4.0 RX-5500 XT is only an 8-lane card, and that it would be running at PCIe 3.0, its bandwidth would be cut down to ~8 GB/s if my math is correct.
What do you folks think? Still a CPU Bottleneck? Wasted GPU bandwidth?
