Sorry but I think I should have done a better job; Blender is not fully using the GPU in both versions and that’s why the CPU and GPU times are so close.
The reason I said it was is because I looked at the Nvidia icon in the taskbar tray that says it is but when I look at the performance monitor it only indicates 3% GPU usage on both 2.79 and 2.8.
The reason I have not picked up on this before is because I do not use this machine for rendering, I use my tower which has a GTX card.

I used a basic cube without any materials or lighting effects to simplify the test, I checked that Blender is using the GPU during the tests, should we not be seeing better GPU times?

Not completely, I’m still getting an 18 second longer cycles render time with 2.8 when tested side by side against 2.79b.
It has improved dramatically though.
I’ve just downloaded and done a fresh 2.8 install and the same test recorded these results.
