Gaming benchmarks (GTX 1080 Ti): Battlefield 1 (DX12)

After the benchmarks with the iGPU we now take a look at more demanding games in combination with the GTX 1080 Ti. 

Battlefield 1 is known as a very CPU-intensive game, but also graphically it can get the maximum out of a lot of hardware. Intel still manages to outperform AMD in this title. CPUs with an extreme amount of cores do not offer more performance in this case, and a smaller amount of fast, higher clocked cores are the best option.
