GeForce GTX 1080 Ti: Core i7 7700K vs. Ryzen 7 1800X Linux Gaming Performance
Since last week's tests of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, a number of Phoronix readers have requested tests of this high-end GP102 graphics card to be done under both the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X and Core i7 7700K. Here are those OpenGL and Vulkan gaming results for those looking at high-end Linux gaming performance.
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was tested in the Kabylake and Zen systems with the same memory and Samsung 950 PRO 256GB NVMe SSD. The i7-7700K was running with the MSI Z270-A PRO motherboard and the Ryzen 7 1800X with the MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM motherboard. Both processors were running at their stock speeds. Tests happened with Ubuntu 17.04 when using the Linux 4.9 kernel paired with the NVIDIA 378.13 binary driver.
Previously with Ryzen I did some Radeon R9 Fury 1800X vs. i7-7700K Linux gaming benchmarks while this article is basically the NVIDIA comparison with both these high-end Intel and AMD CPUs.
