Before I need to upgrade my 2400G to a new 5600X someday sooner. Just wondering about my Radeon 5500XT bottleneck Ryzen 5 5600X. How badly would it be before I can afford a new faster GPU than RX 5500XT? And I'm only focusing on racing games like F12021, BeamNG.Drive, coming as soon NASCAR 21 and some of GTA5. any impact on most of GTA5 on 5600X? I only got 50 FPS in high settings 1080P on 2400G.

Bottleneck considerations are mostly nonsense.
You can get to bottleneck with with different resolution settings. For example with super low resolution 640x480 - cpu always will be the bottleneck (GPU can show more frames, than cpu can prepare for it)
With very high resolution 3840x2160 - graphics card will be the bottleneck (cpu can prepare more frames, than gpu can show).

TLDR - don't worry about that.
You just have to find right resolution/graphics quality settings for your hardware configuration.

OK, thanks for a quick reply. I will buy it soon. And one more quick question. If I update the BIOS to the latest version, will I lost the older APU to the Ryzen 5000 series on a B450 motherboard?
