Hi, so I currently have a 1080ti ftw3 and I play at 3440x1440p and for the most part it is smooth however I do get instances where I do get lag and I’m considering getting a 2080ti and wondering how much of a bottleneck will I have with the ryzen at 3.9ghz. I’m hoping at that resolution the games will still be mainly gpu intensive and not have to upgrade cpu and motherboard with it.

Ryzen 1700 3.9
Gigabyte ab350 gaming 3
Corsair vengeance rgb pro 3200 16gb
Samsung 860 500gb
1000w gold+ EVGA
Asus Rog xg35vq

Yes, But what is the GPU usage when the CPU is at 30-40% usage? And what game... CPU limited or GPU limited? I suspect you'll be right at the margin.

The Bottlenecker shows a bit if bottleneck, but it it only returns an "on paper" result. Doesn't take into consideration your screen rez or in-game settings for instance. I use it for rough estimates only. In fact it shows your 1080 Ti right a negligible 1.83% BN.

Is the 1700x the bottleneck now? Or is the 1080 Ti? Check the CPU vs GPU usage when gaming.
You'll get about a 30-40% bump in performance moving to the 2080 Ti. But you first need to know if the CPU is choking now.
I suspect it is not. And at that rez, the GPU will have more work to do.
