Both will perform pretty close to each other. Intel will have a bit better performance ofcourse due to faster IPC.

I mostly play Pubg, but will be looking at playing division 2 etc in the future, I don't mind spending more money for better performance and future proof. What do you think of the Nvidia 2700 as a card in general?
