When we lower the resolution in Resident Evil, so that the games are no longer GPU limited, we see that the 7700K does well. In GTA:V, a game that uses CPU cores well, the Broadwell-E CPUs do well when the game isn't GPU limited, Ryzen only seems to have an advantage with maintaining a higher minimum FPS.
Tomb Raider shows how Intel's IPC helps it stay ahead in games, but when the game becomes GPU limited, there isn't much difference regarding what CPU you use.
Ashes of Singularity is where I figured the Ryzen CPU would do well, but based on their announcement today of future optimizations, it currently does better on Intel, although not by much.
