Exactly what I thought when I watched the video. Maybe he was trying to show gaming performance of workstation CPUs? 1700 vs 7700k would be more logical as they are also about the same price.These comparisons are interesting, but not compelling. Sure, Ryzen appears to offer a lot of value, but comparing to anything but a 7700K in the gaming arena seems irrelevant.
If someone is concerned cheify with gaming, they aren't going to be choosing an 6800K over a 7700K.

Even the prices suggest a better comparison between a 'real decision' someone might go through
- R7-1700 - $325
- i7-6800K - $440
- i7-7700K - $350

At least the video confirms that Ryzen is also a good architecture for gaming.
Doubt it would make much of a difference. From what I have seen Intels 4c/8t 6xxx series and up and the Ryzens (at least the 8cores) all can easily max the frame rate at 144fps with only a minimum of 140fps @1080p. And with higher level GPUs even 1440p does 140s. 4K isn't too performance pretty but seems able to maintain 60fps with an appropriate GPU to do so.People cherry pick the 6800K because they know it's often worse than a 7700K in games.
