x299 why so slow?

Intel CPUs | Overclockers Forums - www.overclockers.com
I made a totally rash choice and ordered a 7800x from newegg without doing my normal research (really just wanted something new to play with). Tonight I'm here doing the "research" I should have done a couple of days ago while I wait for fedex and I see that x299 cpus are significantly slower than the 7700k in games even at same clock speeds. Hah, not exactly what I wanted to see after spending $600. What I really don't understand is why this is. While the 7700k is faster than the 6700k in games, it isn't near as significant as the 7700k vs 7800x. I'm curious if anyone here can fathom a guess as to why? After selling my 7700k setup I'm only really in for a $120 upgrade, but is it really an upgrade... I should have looked into Ryzen and saved a few bucks.

This is the video that really pointed it out:
