For gaming each additional core gives you less boost then the previous.Also skeptical about the Gen 11 igpu. I would rather see them devote the die space to more cores with a small igpu for basic use. Igpu is, and always will be, a marginal solution at best for gaming.
The 4c/8t is still the fastest gaming CPU together with it's more cored brothers.
Just blindly adding cores will not help with gaming,they might do that for productivity or just as a sales gimmick.
The iGPU on the other hand accelerates video conversion which is pretty popular,and it at least gives hope for dx12 at some time start using it for multigpu or something.
I have no idea about how much cuda and openGL is being used by people but there is that as well.
