Our Settings for GRID 2

At 1920×1080 on GRID 2, the performance delta between Sandy Bridge and Skylake is around 7% when measuring average frame rate. That's not a lot, but it is measurable, as is the small increase in frame time inconsistency.

At 2560×1440 though, that small gap disappears completely, revealing nearly identical performance on both platforms.

For our pair of GTX 980s in SLI though, the performance delta spikes up to 18% in favor of the Core i7-6700K! Frame times are consistent in both cases here, with neither platform exceeding 2ms in our testing until well past the 99th percentile.
