Default Are there CPU-bound games anymore?

I have checked many reviews and comparisons on youtube lately, and cannot find any mentioning CPU-bound games. Is that most of the games in the last 2 to 3 years are designed to be GPU-bound only? Anybody can supply opinions and knowings?

ARMA 3 (old, but still played by many) is CPU/RAM based.

Prior to a recent upgrade (month ago) I was getting 29-45 (avg.) FPS in game, not uncommon. I was running i7-2600K/16GB RAM/GTX 1060 OC (6GB).

I upgraded to a i9-9900k/16GB RAM (DDR4 3200)/same GPU and I was getting 70-130 (avg.) FPS. I added a new MSI 2070 Super and it made zero difference to my FPS.

A few games seem to need faster hardware than most consumers are used to presenting

I found a SSD was the best bang for the buck for gaming generally

Completely agree, NVMe all the way.
