Have a look at things like the 99/99.9% frames (or inversely the 1% or 0.1% lows). You may have high FPS, but if you drop to low FPS regularly it can feel less smooth. That's why, for example, a rock solid 30 FPS on consoles can feel better than a shaky 60 FPS (for me at least). That frame consistency is partially responsible for that "smooth" feeling.

Need to look at the frametimes, 1% and 0.1% lows. Without even having to check data I can tell you the 8-core 16 thread chip with 16mb cache will have smoother gameplay than the 4 core 8 thread chip with only 6mb cache.
