    Are there or will there be any reviews soon that shows how the GPU and CPU compare?

    I'd like to see things like 2200G and CPU's low end to high end to see what potential they can offer and how much loss is there in a nice chart, if possible.

    or if anyone knows of a chart like this, I'd appreciate a link.

    Thanks

    For CPU have a look at 720p/1080p benchmarks, they have less GPU cap, meaning they show how far CPU manages to push frames.
    Compare CPU and GPU average FPS and you should have a picture.

    Example:

    See 720p results for CPU you interested in here:
    https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_7_2700x_review,24.html

    Then for the same game check RTX results below for your desired resolution:
    https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_rtx_2080_founders_review,26.html

    As you can see Ryzen 2700x can push 128fps on average for the game.
    While RTX1080 can push 132FPS for 1080p, 99FPS for 1440p and only 58fps for 4k.

    Obviously game settings can be lowered to offload GPU. So GPU will give more fps, but once you reach CPU cap (128fps), there not much you can do.
    Unless game have video settings that can be lowered to lower CPU load as well.

    Playing at higher resolution makes the GPU work harder, the CPU becomes less of a factor......at least, that's what I tell myself. I have a rather old CPU in the SB-E i7 3960X, and a new RTX2080 Ti, and I game at 3440x1440 (not quite 4K) and I believe at max ingame setting, my GPU is being pushed somewhat, and as long as my CPU can keep framerate fairly high to maintain smooth gaming, I don't care.....not into synthetic benchmarks anymore, though I do use them as a measure of how well my system is performing with different drivers.....and OS updates like the recent Win10 1809 update.

    Same here. 6600k 4.6ghz and a 2080ti. Gaming in 3840x2160(4k)@60hz. Anything over 60fps doesn't make much difference when vsync is on. So as long as my cpu can keep 60, I don't plan on upgrading it anytime soon.
