Total War Warhammer II, Watch Dogs 2, Ghost Recon Wildlands, World of Tanks
Total War Warhammer II is another game that’s far more GPU bound that it is CPU bound when using these high-end processors. As a result, there’s little to talk about here given both the 2700X and 8700K enabled the exact same performance.
The Ryzen 7 2700X is surprisingly competitive in Watch Dogs 2 delivering very similar frame time performance. The biggest performance deficit was seen at 720p where the 2700X was 8% slower for the average frame rate, but this margin was reduced to just 2% at 1080p.
Ghost Recon Wildlands provides GPU bound results at 1440p and 1080p while at 720p the 8700K was up to 9% faster, this is seen when looking at the frame time performance.
Last game test was World of Tanks and here the Core i7-8700K was considerably faster at 720p, providing up to 25% more frames. That said at 1080p that margin is reduced to 4% and then 2% at 1440p.
