Is the GTX 780 bottlenecking the 9900K?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have recently build a new computer.

9900K
32GB ram
2 SSD 1TB/512GB
GTX 780.

I have noticed that the GPU sits on 100% all the time and the CPU is around 12%. And it is devided over 2 cores (0-2).
So I wonder if the GTX 780 is the bottleneck here?
The values stay there, even if I set everything on low.
FPS is between 25-50. Set to 60. Where I am not unsatisfied about this.

 

Thanks ahead,

RobB

What are you doing to drive the GPU to 100%?

Are you maxing out VRAM usage?

Start by reducing settings to get the GPU usage down!

Yeah that's an old card.  You're pretty unbalanced at the moment.  Try to find a GTX 1070 Ti or a straight 1080 and you'll notice a big difference.

Absolutely.

@Bert Pieke Absolutely nothing.
All settings minimal (sliders to the left).
No AA or traffic.
And weather I did put the sliders of the world to the right not even the fps changed. CPU usage and FPS stayed the same.
FPS only dropped after I added 10% traffic.
Tessalation was set to 0.

@ryanbatcund @Luke  Thanks for the advice.
Fastest in the shops around here is the 1050, or jump the 1660 or even the 208/2070.

 

Thanks,

9900k 2070 would be a nice combo

Would the gtx 2080 or 2080 TI add something? I am considering either of the 2.
I even saw some tests with SLI.
I am using 3x 24" monitors. And I am not sure if I like that.

Thanks

the perfect combo with 9900k is single 2080TI, one more card dont give mutch 

If you run P3D with high settings a single 2080TI handle +5.5ghz cpu , i have some 2080TI tested SLI think i not have cpu for it i stuck with single card.

when i run 2x1080TI SLI there its  a benefit over single card , but not much with the 2080TI

Rob,

Try this site...I use it for trying different combinations of hardware before I "dream" of my new system.....http://thebottlenecker.com/#home

Interesting results often times.

Thank you for the Advice.

You're going to notice a big difference (of course it will cost a bit ha)

after 15 minutes of flight I am getting Card 780 stopped working.
Is that what you meant by:"to few memory"?

 

Thanks,

Run GPU-Z (freeware) alongside your flightsim.. it allows you to track both VRAM and GPU usage numbers.. and temperature...

(Sensors tab..)

Considering all the stories here, how much would I gain with the TI over the non-ti 2080?
I ask that because the pricetag is nearly 50% difference.
If it is 30 to 33 fps or 50 to 55 fps I might even consider the non ti. But later regret it ;-).

There is a chance not taking the 3x 24, but going back to 1x 24" due to the stretched images on the 2 outer monitors.  Which looks ugly, but I could get used to.

Thanks for your thoughts.
