As you can see, the BIOS versions can impact CPU performance, but I believe the aim of these new microcode/BIOS updates is to reduce temperatures and power consumption, as they are very high.

Skylake-X microarchitecture is extremely powerful, as is its mesh CPU interconnect technology, but the downside is power and thermals. With 8 cores and 16 threads it can't beat out the 6950X in raw cores/threads, but it does well against the competition from the 1800X.

AIDA64 just got a huge update that greatly reduced the integer IOPS and FLOPS performance of the Skylake-X family of processors, so now they better match Broadwell-E and Ryzen CPUs and aren't something like 2-3x better.
