Windows 10 Discrete GPU Performance
For the Windows 10 section I switched out the i7 4770K for the i7 5775C, and then increased the resolutions for all tests to 1440P, so increase the chances for graphics bottlenecks by the CPU, this way I can see how much CPU processing power effects scores.
DirectX 12 3DMark API Overhead
There are a few surprises to be seen. First is that in GTA:V with discrete graphics, the GPU is more of a bottleneck than the CPU, and so frame rates between the 4770K and 7870K are quite close in 1080p. In the Draw Cell test in 3DMark the 5775C does considerably better than the 7870K, which is basically the opposite when there is no discrete card.
