Hi, I am going to buy a 1050ti, but I have an AMD fx-6600K processor. A website said my CPU will bottleneck my GPU for 12%. Is this bad, or okay?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When upgrading it is always a good idea to try and match the speed as much as possible when it comes to the CPU, memory and graphics memory (in dedicated and not integrated). This will cut down on the bottle necks. A 12 percent difference could be an issue. I would check for a closer fit then weight the benefits of the two and see if the difference is worth it.

    Please keep in mind, that bottlenecking is not something that ruins performance. Bottlenecks in hardware are mainly caused by a miss match of hardware Like a single core CPU with a fast multicore GPU & slow system ram which lead the CPU could not provide data fast enough for the GPU to be fully utilized and might lead the GPU to only run in lower capacity. However, at least 12% is not bad. Also make sure the parameters were all correct when you put information on the web site.
