So I bought a Gigabyte 3080 Gaming OC. Currently paired with a Ryzen 5 2600, 16GB of RAM, and a 650W PSU at 1080p. So I tested to see how games I played would run and.......I was disappointed. I know that 1080p is more or less a bottleneck for this card and the 2600 might be as well but not getting that card to run past 60% on average? I decided to test Monster Hunter World cranked up all the way and never saw the load go above 52%. However I set the FPS cap to 144 yet the fps never went above 115, even with my CPU at around 70%. Next was Red Dead. I optimized the settings that Hardware Unboxed recommended and got an average of 101 FPS in the benchmark with the GPU never going above 80% and that was only for a few seconds on the snow part. My question is.... I thought that because I was playing at 1080p, the 3080 would not break a sweat giving me a constant 144 buttery smooth fps. The reality is that it is not breaking a sweat... but giving me similar results to my old 1060 if I had everything on low(except for Red Dead). Is it really bottlenecked by my CPU that badly? The picture is the result of my Red Dead 2 Benchmark.
