Depends on the game.
CPU instensive games suffer.

Kingdom Come Deliverence for example I can run high with a steady 60 fps in the biggest town in the game, because the game does not have that many NPC characters.

RDR 2 in Saint Denis as I've mentioned starts giving issues when many NPC's are in one area and that's where the bottleneck comes in. I've had to lower settings to get it to not affect gameplay.

Games still run no problem, but graphical sacrifices need to be made for a enjoyable experience.
Have you actually checked what is maxing out? On a 1060 I wouldn't be surprised if it's your GPU and not the CPU.

Okay, ignoring RTX and whatever special graphics is planned for this game in anticipation of the PS5 and XBSX I think the requirements will be same as the requirements for Doom Eternal which also has an additional high-end recommendation.

Would like to know what 60fps on max settings at 1080p will require. Think that's what most would want to know.

In today's time, an R9 380/GTX 960 and 4 core/ 4 threads CPU (+3.0GHz) should theoretically still be the ultimate low-end to have a bearable experience at low/1080p.

A 4 core / 8 threads CPU (3.4GHz) should be enough, however, 6 cores and up are optimal. High/1080p, Vega 56/GTX 1070. You will get +60 FPS.

1080p is still mainstream, Steam's Hardware Survey suggests it as such. High-end within the game's recommendations could also go into 1440p territory.

I'm going to do a test. I'm going to run COD and see how many threads it really utilizes. I have 16 so it can have it's pick.

I have a GTX 970 and FX8350 CPU with 8GB RAM. System was last upgraded in 2015 but the GPU is still decent so I haven't needed an upgrade for gaming at 1080p. Think I will have CPU and RAM issues with Cyberpunk. When I do upgrade eventually, I want to do the whole system at once but selling my current stuff might be tedious right now.

Intel CPUs are a bit 'bottlenecked' with their security patches, pending on whether you have the patches applied. The thread optimisation is impacted.

You AMD peeps should be happy.

I still run an i7-4970/Vega 64. I was going to upgrade this year, but then human malware struck the circuit. Looking at upgrading next year.
