Games like frequency, and while the desktop S-series of processors is much better, the 9980XE easily beats out both the 7900X and 7980XE with ease. The frequency increases are significant for gaming, but we will stop short of calling this a gaming CPU because it's not. It can be used in mix workloads, and in that case, you will see gaming improvements over the 7980XE if you will use it in that way. The reason we suspect the considerable improvements in gaming is because of turbo table improvements you can see on the last page.
