    A better gaming CPU (taking recommendations)


    I am with i-7820X and GTX 1080 Ti Strix. So far, I've seen several indicators that the CPU is a bottleneck for some gaming moments.

    Concretely, in Quake Champions, folks get stabler and higher fps. That game loves high clocks, so when I raised the CPU to 4.3 GHz, it indeed gave more fps. Unfortunately, the i7-7820X only takes me so far.

    Also, in Hitman (TM) 2, simulation quality is an option selected based on CPU specs. Unfortunately, stuttering is immense at the setting where the i7-7820X should fit in (8+ cores).

    The 3D Mark also seems to mention this, with a bit of humor. It gave me achievement "Your GPU is ready to rumble, but your CPU doesn't want to play."

    I picked i7-7820X because it is a mule for non-gaming purposes, but apparently games like something else. Do you have suggestions on what CPU would do better for gaming?
