Same GPU as GURU's benched, still i7 CPU but 5k less points?

    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/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_1080_g1_gaming_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.
