Hey people, I rock Ryzen 3700x with RTX 2080 (non Ti, non S). Simply put, should I buy 5800x ? Will it get me some FPS boost ? I might go for 3080ti when it is avaliabel (if ever) or 3080.
To me it seems like 3700x might fall behind on them 3000 series. Cant really find any videos on 2080 paired with 5800x that could give me some ideas so here I am asking :)
I play zounds of any type of games on 1440p 144hz, I'd like to keep it on as high FPS as possible.
I appreciate any answers, thanks !

MY RIG:
CPU: 3700x
GPU: 2080
MOBO: Giga. Gaming X 550
PSU: 850W gold EVGA
RAM: 16GB 3200mhz CL16
 
I’m using a 3700x and 3080 for 1440p 144Hz. There is no sign that the cpu holds back the gpu, in a few games I still have to compromise a few settings if I want the gpu to push >140fps. I had a 2080 Super before and found it underwhelming and am glad I upgraded.

All you have to do is watch the video's of 5600X's paired with 3080's. At 1440p and up the CPU isn't a factor so even a 5950X couldn't help and a 2080 would only be worse.

The thing is, that's also pretty much the case with 3700X's. There's really not a lot to recommend an upgrade to Ryzen 5000 from Ryzen 3000 for gaming only.
