the benchmark is obvious the Haswell architecture is slower than Skylake by 10-5% IPC wise, the i7 is ahead due to HT.

games which perform better with more cores/threads

Ashes of the Singularity
Hitman
Hitman Absolution
Mad Max
Mirror Edge Catalyst
Fallout 4
Need For Speed
DOOM
Forza Motorsport 6 Apex
Tom Clancys The Division
Battlefield 4
Battlefield Hardline
Star Wars Battlefront
Battlefield 1
Crysis 2
Crysis 3
Ryse
The Climb
Homefront the Revolution
Star Citizen
Total War Rome II
Total War Attila
Total War Warhammer
Dragon Age Inquisition
Far Cry 4
Far Cry Primal
Just Cause 3
Assasins Creed Syndicate
Metal Gear Solid V TP
Watch Dogs

And more
