A10 APU Bottlneck GTX 680

Would my AMD A10 7800 APU bottle neck a GTX 680? And if so by how much, what are some reccomended CPU's that are just enough to not bottleneck the GPU? Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    It mostly depend on the game, but the APU most likely lack the CPU output to keep up with your GPU in mild CPU intensive games, so in the end the bottlenecking should be noticeable.

    In your platform no upgrade would be worth or good enough for it, so you are most likely to change to a different one, be an intel or just wait for AMD Zen.

    If I were playing something like League of legends or DayZ would it bottlneck?
  3. Yeah, both of those games are pretty CPU intensive, and the bottleneck could be quite annoying sometimes.

    Aw man, I really dont wanna go buy another CPU and Mobo Its gonna be like 300+ dollars man
  5. As an option you could buy the best CPU without integrated graphics that your platform can offer, the Athlon X4 880k:

    But I can't guarantee a huge difference in performance, or overclock your CPU if you want to try.
