I have an i7 4790 and an rtx 2060 and can say with confidence that the bottleneck is huge, cpu maxes out way too fast and games like AC:origins run like crap.

I was wondering, could someone put together a benchmark list for the RTX 2060 with an i5-9400f CPU? I haven't found anything for this com

Kane, check this example video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhxlHySW-wE
Living breathing evidence that an FX 8320/8350 just cannot handle a 290/780 or better, even in a GPU bound game. know why the 8350 trailed 5-15fps? It wasn't tuning to its full usage like the i7 was running it That 8320 choking a 780 to 72% usage.

So I wanted to update my cpu and gpu. Got a good deal today for the RTX 2060 but now the question is. Do I really need to change now the I3-7100? or it can wait for next year? Any opinions?

This is bullshit! It also says that FX-8320 will bottleneck the R9 270. I have this CPU with R9 270X and they work fine together, no CPU limit at all. This CPU can even work well with a GTX 1660 Ti or an RTX 2060 too!

For apex legends, this also occurs on old intel CPU's Core 2 Duos and Quads. I got a Core 2 Quad Q9400 overclocked at 3.0 Ghz and still runs some games decently, it ain't great but still holds up a bit and it has SSE4.1 instructions not 4.2 and Apex refuses to start. Some games had this problem but it got fixed and ran decent on my system, see no reason why this wouldn't be the case with Apex.
