While Resident Evil 6 puts the CPUs on even footing, they are both faster than the higher core count CPUs. The GTA:V tests show us a kind of weird trend where the 7740X is slightly faster at some of the higher resolutions.

 

Moving onto Rise of the Tomb Raider, the difference is much larger, but not everywhere. The 7700K has a higher minimum FPS at 720P, but similar at 1080P and 1440P. In Ashes of the Singularity, we see they are quite similar.
