Hello I'm seeing if a i7-7700 and rx 5700 xt s bottleneck is bad
i7-6700 (28.86)
i7-7700(4.58)

is 4.58 bad? and will it hurt performance

And THAT thing is pure trash. 100% snake oil. No connection to any reality. Ignore completely.
Not worth the electrons it takes to display on your screen.

My system a while ago, just to see.
Exact same parts, a few months apart.

Bottleneck calculators are garbage and should be avoided as they don't account for the game nor monitor resolution. If your pairing either of those CPU's with a RX 5700 XT at 1080P or higher then they will pair fine.

If your on 1080P or lower and the GPU usage is low on a fairly new game then utilize AMD VSR as it will run the game at a higher resolution then scale it back to the native resolution. Doing so will could make the game look better over AA settings and better utilize the GPU.

My favorite part about that is recommending the Quadro P5000 :LOL:
