How to check if current CPU bottlenecks my PC in BF1?

Do you have any idea how could I check i my CPU is bottle-necking my machine?
Currently runs at i5-2500k 3.3 @ 4.0 Ghz with GTX1060.
How to interpret perfoverlay.drawgraph?

Is that below huge bottleneck?

Either you have one of those "theoretical" GPUs with infinite power or that graph is not reading GPU time correctly. For me, CPU and GPU time is about the same.

Do you have DX12 enabled? I am not sure but that could prevent perfoverlay from working right (sounds silly but you never know).

Either way, looking at the hardware you have you should be fine. i5 6600k is probably better than my i7 3770k for gaming (although dunno about the cores), so that shouldn't be slowing you down.
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:

  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

Thanks.
I have checked both on DX11 and DX12. Still my GPU graph looks flat :P

That looks completely fine, unless you want a steady 144HZ.

It never dropped below being able to produce 60FPS (16.67ms).

The game runs like absolute shit on 2500K on 64p servers. But then again, absolute shit for me means anything below 90-110FPS...

Damn... I noticed that I got 2500K and not 6600K. And you are right... It seems taht for 64 players It get stuck.

Shall I upgrade CPU to for example 3770K? I think it would be maximum I could get from LGA1155? Or maybe some better i5 then mine.

TBH I'd wait and see what AMD has achieved with Ryzens (Q1 2017) before upgrading your CPU, I'm looking to upgrade my 2500K myself.
