    i used to have a i5 3570k pushed to 4.3ghz with 8gb of ram paired with GTX980... this was in 2016 and i played deus ex mankind divided where i know my system can handle it no problem given the specs... i benchmarked the game a few times and it showed me i was getting 65-70fps on average.... but boy certain parts of the game especially in the city area... it was choppy... set the game to medium eased the choppyness a little bit but it was still there... at this stage im not sure if i needed more ram or cpu was the culprit

    I finally caved in and got a i7 6700k with 16gb ram and paired with the 980... i fired up deus ex once more and boy the choppyness was gone... i can say the i5 3570k was a great cpu and its still is by todays standard but more and more titles favour more cores in 2019... id say the i5 3570k still be good for lite gaming and a great for office productivity

    While that is generally the case it is not entirely true.

    AMD 290 and 390 series in particular were designed to run hot. Their max temp is 115°C.

    It depends on the chemical mix in the silicon and the architecture itself.
    There is no hard and fast rule.

    Intel cup's generally run hotter than AMD because they are designed to. Same thing is happening. It won't kill chips any faster or cause performance loss unless they hit a point where they are designed to throttle.

    It's your video card, end of discussion.

    Actually, Nvidia GPU's by default are designed to run under load at ~80C with the default fan profile. On the other hand , running at 94C does seem a bit excessive.

    lower resolution = less load on GPU.

    Did you check GPU-z perf. cap reason graph? If it is thermal, you should consider opening your pc case case to make sure video card gets as much cooler air as possible.

    With summer coming, heat will be much bigger issue.

    Anyway, if you enjoy the game, that all what matters.
