a couple years ago, I was the one answering questions in this board, but recently I've encountered a problem I don't really know how to solve
CPU: AMD FX-8350
RAM: 8gb ddr3
GPU: AMD Radeon rx580
I've been dropping quite a lot of fps ingame. During teamfights, it's actually down to 40 or even lower, even when I compromise on graphics settings. I've been wondering if it's my CPU that's bottlenecking, but I'm seeing that, both my CPU and GPU are not even close to 100% utilization.
I know my CPU is quite old, but it's not an issue for most games I'm playing, even hat high to max settings. Is league really THAT CPU heavy? And how would that explain my low CPU usage even during teamfights?
It's quite hot in germany right now, but when I'm not overclocking I reach 65°C at most (my chip throttles at 70°C, and even then it's not utilized fully by league).
Also, RAM usage is at around 4-6gb, even if I use chrome while playing.
I've been wondering if I should upgrade my rig already, but if these problems aren't occuring due to my CPU bottlenecking, I'm not sure what else it could be. The fact that it's not utilized fully makes me a little skeptic though.
Any ideas? Let me know if you need any additional info. Maybe I can even run some benchmarks in the next couple of days.
