Hi!

Anyone here knows if a RTX 2080 TI would get bottlenecked by a Ryzen 5 1600X ? And if so would it be by much?

Depends on the game and resolution but if you have that 1600 overclocked in the 3.8-4.0ghz range and are gaming at 4K/60hz then it would probably be ok. Any lower of a resolution will probably result in the CPU holding back the performance quite a bit.

It is though a bit of a odd pairing ($150 CPU with $1200 GPU).

The pairing is because I just upgraded the graphic card but using my old CPU (Not overclocked btw) still.

I'm testing with Assasins creed unity and when running it on the highest settings and 4K/60hz i get around 38-48 FPS.
when lowering resolution to 2560x1440 i get perfect 60 FPS.

Do you think overclocking or buying better CPU would yield better FPS on 4K?

Absolutely. Even 2700x causes some bottleneck in some cases with 2080ti. If i were you i would get an 9600k (with a nice motherboard) with 2070 for much less price and smoother experience.

No CPU bottleneck with the usage.

This being said though it wouldn't hurt to consider a 3rd gen if the performance per core is significantly higher but we won't know until release and testing can be done.
I can't afford a new MB & CPU for a while anyways, I had to sell my mother to buy this graphic card....

Is it not strange though that this card can't run 4k 60fps on a game released 2014?

It was & still is terribly optimized. I had a 4770K/1080 ti previously and could barely get 60 FPS on high/ultra settings at 2560x1080P. I've been hesitant to try it again as I only have a 2600/RX 580.
