For the gaming benchmarks, I used a mixture of synthetics and built-in benchmarks that use the real game, and performance is improved when the games are CPU bound, such as in GTA: V.

 

Reducing the resolution of a lot of these games reduces GPU requirements, allowing us to see the difference the CPU can make in the game. Obviously, there are some improvements over the 5960X, but in some games, such as Ashes of Singularity where the game is extremely intensive, and DX12 helps reduce CPU overhead, the 6700K can still hold its own.
