Hey guys, so I recently upgraded from a GTX 1080 Ti to a EVGA 3080 TI ICX3.

im getting around 100fps in warzone at 1440p (resolution render) ultra settings w/ ray tracing
Fortnite around 115 fps epic settings 1080p no dlss no ray tracing.
i7 8700k. 32gb 2666 ram. 1000w supernova

could this be cpu bottlenecking? using like 70% of cpu usage or more in warzone and fortnite as well.

videos on youtube of people getting crazy frames with this card and I'm a bit disappointed it doesn't do any better than my 1080ti

Any input is greatly appreciated!

I could believe your fps are cpu limited. As a test drop your resolution to 1080p and see if your fps increases, if it doesn’t that would mean the cpu is a possible cause of your fps limitation
Yep so 1440p to 1080p no difference in fps. And only slightly lower at 90 at 4k render

Generally if you want more fps from a system you upgrade the CPU. If you want to see better quality, you upgrade GPU and turn the visual settings to max.

For a CPU to be the "bottleneck" , it doesn't have to be at 100% usage. You have to look at each core usage individually and even then, high 90%s is more than enough. Also some games don't use all the available cores (warzone does use plenty though).

You are all so much probably comparing a newer generation of CPU which just by the IPC gains even on the same clocks there can be a major difference. Another thing to consider is the slower ram. Although Intel CPUs are not affected as much as their AMD counterparts by the ram speed, it does play a role. A sweet spot is at 3200MHz for your generation.
