Resident Evil tends to enjoy cores and SMT performance, and we see the CPU doing actually quite well in that benchmark. Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation doesn't seem to like the CPU much, but we see better results than with the first generation.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, we see decent results, but Intel still has the upper hand. In GTA:V, we see an uplift from the 2990WX, but it's not as good as Intel's offerings, but that is to be expected as this is a content creation CPU.
