Explanation of AMD/Intel at Higher Resolution Lack of Benchmark Gap

That's because its limited by the graphics cards.. The graphics cards cant push the games and further at those resolutions and that's why you see everything so close.

Also you cant compare AMD v Intel clock speed to clock speed as the new AMD processors have a higher IPC so can do more with the speed they have. That's why you see the new chips doing so well even tho they have a much lower boost clock compared to the intel chips. Its more complicated than that of course but that's the basics of it.

I was wondering if anyone knew exactly as to why the AMD/Intel processors show a decently noticeable difference at 1080p, but once it hits 1440p/4k, then there's next to no difference; if one at all.  If anyone w/useful information would be able to relay as to why, it'd be greatly appreciated.

i'm not sure what generation of cpu's you're talking about, but 1080p will drive higher framerates than 1440p and 4k will. higher framerates needs a faster CPU to keep up with all the draw calls.

The new series.  The benchmarks are ridiculously close at higher resolutions despite the lower clockspeeds of AMD.
