Not sure if this is right....

So I got the Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 today.

Benched it on default Fire Strike and got 14.8k points.
I looked at Guru's review of the same card here.
http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages...review,28.html
and I see it got 19k

Ok so I know my CPU isn't the same as the reviewed but its not totally slow and I know my ram is slower too, but should these 2 differences added up to a 4k deficit?

Win 10 64bit and the latest Nvida drivers out today.
Rest of parts in profile on side there... Nothings overclocked.
If this seems legit then that's fine...

The FireStrike P score is very CPU bound.

Though your processor will be absolutely fine for gaming, in FireStrike it shows alright. We run 8 cores at 4.4 GHz you do 4 at 3.8 Ghz I think the 3820 is. Then there's platform difference (efficiency), PCIe Gen 2.0 / 3.0 (minor differences) faster memory (quad-channel) etc, all these things add up a bit here and there.

Do yourself a favor, check the GPU score with a more GPU bound test like Time Spy and compare here.

Thanks for the reply Hilbert.

I did the time Time Spy BM and got a graphics score of 7303 so I guess that's not to bad.

I'll probably look at getting one of the new Intel Kaby Lake CPUs and some decent speed DDR4 ram.
