At lower resolutions, Intel's IPC and game optimization really help the Intel processors. At higher resolutions, there isn't much difference between Ryzen processors and Intel processors because of the GPU bottleneck. If you game above 1440p, you won't notice much of a difference between Intel's offerings and AMD's because of the general state of the PC hardware ecosystem.

 

In Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation benchmark, we can see that the optimizations put the 1600X ahead of the older 1700 results (I did retest the 1700 and found that it matches the 1600X now).
