Will a Ryzen 5 3600 bottleneck a rtx 3070 gpu?

Hard to say. I think it more or less depends on the games you play and at what resolution. The RTX 3070 is projected to match the RTX 2080 Ti. So either you can wait two weeks and check out the reviews or guess based on how the 2080 Ti preforms right now.

Generic answer, i'm going to say if your playing at 1080, yes. 4K, no.

Steve of TechSpot and Hardware Unboxed looked into the pairing of the R5 3600 with the RTX 3080, and while that is not the same as pairing the CPU with an RTX 3080, it may still give you an idea of what can be expected.

Of course Steve pairs it with the data he collected, but ir_cow's "generic answer" appears to be completely correct; at 1920x1080, the RTX 3080 was being held back by the CPU, but at 2560x1440 this was not as true, and at 4k the CPU did not make much difference.

More or less if the game has heavy AI it will suffer with a low end cpu. So games like GTA5 will be highly impacted. A game like COD will not see a drop.

Also memory frequency can be factor if you playing AI heavy games.

Yes, there is some bottleneck at 1080p, but the RTX 3070 is not made for 1080p, it is made for 1440p at least, and maybe 4K and more. At 4K there won't be actually any bottleneck, the Ryzen 5 3600 is powerful enough to pull out the frames from RTX 3070 at 4K resolution with ultra details (if the RTX can keep it).
