Intel Core i3-4160 with GTX 1060 6GB Gaming Benchmarks

The Intel Core i3-4160 is over a 5-year-old CPU, and the GTX 1060 is also over a 5-year-old GPU, so this combination will be fascinating, and that is why we are here to provide details on this two hardware.

In this article, we will provide Intel Core i3-4160 with GTX 1060 6GB Gaming Benchmarks so you can have a better understanding of these two combos. This article will also help you learn the Bottleneck regarding this combo and other similar hardware combos.

At 1440p, the GTX 1060 6GB can get 50-60 fps on almost everything at maximum, but with less antialiasing, less ambient occlusion, and fewer shadows. The GTX 1060 6GB is clearly a more powerful high-end card, capable of playing AAA games at 1080p/1440p at 50-60 fps. When compared to the competition in cheap mid-range cards, the price/performance ratio for the GTX 1060 6GB is great. Memory-wise, the GTX 1060 6GB’s  6GB VRAM is more than plenty for recent games and should not cause any problems. This combination of GTX 1060 6GB and Intel Core i3-4160  will produce considerable bottlenecks in many games, resulting in a significant FPS decrease.

Combining the i3–4160 with a GTX 1060 class GPU nowadays is a bit of a stretch, but 60fps is still fairly feasible for the most part. You’re approaching the point where most games will suffer bottlenecking and stuttering, especially when paired with DDR3–1600.

On 1080p resolution, an Intel Core i3-4160 (Clock speed at 100%) with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Clock speed at 100%) will cause 44 percent of the CPU bottleneck. Anything above 10% is considered a bottleneck.

i3-4160 is too weak for GTX 1060 6GB on 1080p resolution.

Fortunately, the game performance was excellent (If 1060 6GB with a better CPU ). The GTX 1060 6GB frequently outperforms the GTX 960 in terms of fps gains, making it well worth the purchase. We were able to play Hitman 2, Apex Legends, F1 2019, World War Z, and Battlefield V at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hanging around 65 fps in 1080p Full HD.
