The 7980XE and 7960X are pretty equal in FireStrike, and it does seem that the benchmark enjoys the extra cores and Intel's microarchitecture. CloudGate seems to prefer frequency over cores.

 

Unigine also really takes advantage of frequency, but the effect is more evident at 720P and less of an issue during 1080P benching. These results show us that some games will enjoy the more cores of the 7980XE, while others will like the frequency of the 7960X.
