GPU for i7-4790K? (<=230W MAX TDP)

Recommended Posts


I'm looking for advice, I currently have an i7-4790K (upgrade isn't an option), I play P3Dv5 in stereo mode VR Rift S (for truesky) with ortho and don't have any VRAM issue (currently with 6GB) and I'm looking to buy a new GPU.

As my GPU power supply is limited to 230W I need to take one with less power.

My options would be:


RTX 2070


RTX 2060

So my question is about bottleneck, would any of these cards bottleneck my i7-4790K in Stereo VR Rift S (1440p resolution)?

Thanks for reading,

yeah well I tried this calculator but I don't believe it, it says that a 2060 bottlenecks my CPU more than a 2070 super... that can't be
