GTX 1080 Ti Test on Ryzen and Intel Kaby Lake

Nuggety Nathan Kirsch of Legit Reviews fame has put Ryzen up against Kaby Lake in four benchmarks that are specific to gaming with the brand new GTX 1080 Ti. (See the full HardOCP review of the 1080 Ti here.) He comes to an opinion that will not be popular with some of the fanoby crowd.

The 1440P scores also showed that the average frame rate was 22% higher on the Intel platform, so when it comes to 1080P or 1440P gaming performance the Intel Core i7-7700K and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti pair together nicely.

We here at HardOCP are surely going to take the mantle up on this Ryzen Vs. Kaby Lake gaming issue as well, but quite frankly, we want to give AMD, the motherboard builders, and Microsoft a week or so to get their ducks in line on performance. If there are any quick fixes that come about, we want to make sure we take those into consideration.
