At a certain point - around 2012 maybe? - Intel CPUs stopped getting a lot faster. They began making very incremental steps forward in performance. Around that same time though, CPUs were powerful enough that almost all games are GPU limited. So as long as one has a recent CPU, the GPU will almost always be the bottleneck. (I can't really speak for AMD CPUs since I've always used Intel's.)

This performance app suggesting he upgrade his GPU is just a bad result, basically. It probably sees he has a quad core but is still underperforming so it guesses. (This is also a guess on my part)

can't wait for Thunderbolt 3 to catch on for external video cards, VR looks to be limited to PC Towers and desktop replacement laptops for the moment.
