We see major gains in Resident Evil 6. While in all the games we see total domination in average FPS, in GTA:V we see a slight dip in minimum frame rates compared to the 8086K. Some of it could be a margin of error or Z370 vs. Z390, or it could be a performance impact from the hardware patches to two of the vulnerabilities. We see that in Rise of The Tomb Raider, that minimum thing basically is gone at 1080P and 720P, so it's not a steady trend. In Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, we see, for the first time, noticeable scaling of performance, and of course, the GPU bottleneck at 1440P. Overall, this CPU dominates games.
