Not like there is IPC difference between Sandy and Sandy. So, his situation is same with exception of games which already benefit from HT. vid removed - no GN here plz. OC often can catch to stock Ryzen. In one of cases even getting better. But that's purely based on game selection as one could just take another 10 games where i7-2600k would hold no candle to Ryzen or 10 where it would win. To have it done properly, one would need to put it into context of engine and year build of given engine got release.
