Gaming is moving to 4k, slowly. And once gaming moves to 4k, the IPC difference between Intel and AMD is going to be irrelevant, because AMD's Ryzen 5 (non-X) model with no OC is going to get the same FPS as Intel's OC'd I7, within a % point or 2 . I think gaming will have comfortably moved to 4k for enthusiast builds, before Intel drops a 10nm chip. Further delays by Intel will only serve to assist their competition who's closing the gap on them, quickly. Or you're discouraging people who have older I7 CPUs from upgrading at all, due to there being little to no gains to be had once gaming officially transitions to 4k on single GPU setups. Some people might still prefer 1440p/144hz+ for PC gaming, and Intel chips would certainly be better on that type of monitor and refresh rate. But only on CPU intensive games, or AMD can probably hold the refresh rate as well.
