Even if you design great hardware, it can be of little use if the software isn't on-par. Optimizing software for specific platforms can yield big increases in performance, so it's no surprise to see AMD is actively involved in this by sending Ryzen + Radeon care packages to game developers.

A year ago, after the launch of the first-gen Ryzen chips, AMD focused on Ryzen optimization and this year the focus is on gaming. Overclock3D reports various game developers received shipments from AMD to help optimize their games for Ryzen and the latest Radeon video cards.
Over the past two months, we have seen three developers confirm that they have received Ryzen/Radeon care packages from AMD, which includes an assortment of Ryzen CPUs and Radeon graphics cards, giving developers a kickstart towards optimising their future games.

One of these developers is Techland, the creators of Dying Light and Call of Juarez, who recently revealed Dying Light 2 at E3 2018. This developer has received what appears to be every processor in AMD's Ryzen 2000-series lineup, which includes two Ryzen 3 2200G APUs, two Ryzen 5 2400G APUs, three Ryzen 5 CPUs, three Ryzen 7 CPUs and four Ryzen Threadripper processors.
