Ashes of the Singularity

In Resident Evil 6, we see the 3950X take the crown from both the 3900X and the i9s. We even see it get past a CPU bottleneck at 720p in Resident Evil 6. It does considerably better at fighting off the i9 in GTA:V, but still, the 9900KS does do better.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, the 3950X matches the 9900K but gets beat by the 9900KS. In Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, the 3950X does better than the 3900X, but it doesn't beat the 9900KS.

In gaming, the 9900KS still has the lead, but with AMD trailing really close.
