    That's one way to look at it, but another way to look at it is - Comparing results. Now compare the 8700K with a higher overclock, compared to my aging 4th gen, 212points in 4k, and 360points higher at 1080p (CPU bottleneck) that's about 5% faster, for a CPU with more cores/threads and a higher overclock, and newer architecture. That makes me want to keep hold of my money, as the outlay for a 8700K, DDR4, and Mobo is just not worth it. :)

    It was meant tounge in cheek but let's face it unless you have oodles of money these bench mark threads are elitest at best.

    Ps my 2600 oc to 4ghz and my 970 doesn't struggle one bit in bf1 at 1920x1200 at ultra.

    Its a GPU benchmark not CPU benchmark so that comparison to an 8700k is a little pointless.

    I tend to use these things as an aid to test stability and its nice to see where you land in terms of performance after all of your tweaking, much easier to beat on a machine with a repeatable piece of software than wonder if a game etc has crashed due to your setup.

    It's not all about how much you spend on hardware, but more of a benchmark you could look back on if/when you upgrade, or comparing results. As I would love to see some Ryzen benchmarks with a 1080Ti to compare with. :)

    Yes, but this is gaming results I'm comparing with how well the GTX 1080Ti scales with different processors. ;)

    Any chance you can run this benchmark, or did you end up selling your Ti's?

    I've run it before, I'll see if I can dig up results.

    I just like trying to better myself, or others with similar gear. I'm 6 points off the top score on the leaderboard of people with 970's and I started at nearly 500 points behind. Yes anyone with a 1080 can piss all over my score, but that's not really the point. It's about trying to get the max out of what you got.

    I said to someone at work yesterday, I like fiddling with my rig more than actually using it.

    Yeah maybe it was about to crap out on me ... who knows. It never overheated or throttled so ... yeah. I just have to facepalm. Not having a great weekend anyway .. went to work this morning and the front of my beemer just collapsed about a mile down the road. Currently waiting for recovery.

    Im just laughing about it now.. it cant get no worse :p

    I pray that you don't have my luck, because it always comes in bloody threes !

    This benchmark is super heavy on the card tbh, especially as it's all DX12 so the GPU does have to do an awful lot it may not have done before. Oddly though my Fury X clocks much higher in this benchmark than it does in DX11 stuff.

    My XP (big pee) under a dual rad.

    For some reason the card seems to be limited to 2088mhz. No matter what I do it will only run 2088, and in one scene it is limited to 2076. Strange.. As I pushed on the score started degrading (seen that a few times before tbh).

    BE Xeon 14/28 @ 2.9ghz driver version is on the pic :) (tis the latest one).

    @true_gamer, here we go Si - my 1600 running it's day to day 3.9GHz and my Zotac GTX 1080Ti Mini (please note MINI :p) running at 2000/12000 (I'll see what else it has to give when it goes under water at a later date ;)).

    That's impressive, only 5 points behind my 1080p score, so if you can get the exrta 50MHz on the GPU core, then I'm pretty sure it will beat mine.

    Be interesting to see what the new Ryzen 2700x will be like to compare. :)

    I'll try to run this on a 980 next time I go cold for a comparison.

    Cheers mate, I was pretty impressed (mild understatement) that a Ti with a PCB that is only 211mm's long could even do that let alone hold it :D

    I should have a 2700X in my possession at some point in the future to ;)

    That is impressive indeed. But how's it for holding the overclocked, does it throttle down? Or are the temps good?

    Well I look forward to it. May even twist my arm to by some DDR4, which I'm so anti about at the mo. :)

    Believe it or not no throttling, it just gets kinda hot after 30 minutes or so (hence why I always intended to put it under water anyway).

    @true_gamer - don't hate me...

    That's with just +10MHz added to the GPU core clock (no voltage increase - stock voltage) and the system ram (DDR4) running @3400MHz.
