The most popular and well-known consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are 8-core – that’s how many computing cores are located in AMD CPUs. But in reality, not all of them are available. Previously, Sony and Microsoft have reserved two cores for the system needed. However, an American company some time ago granted developers access to the seventh CPU core of its platform in order to outperform its competitor in performance (games are played in higher resolution on the Playstation 4 console). But, apparently, the Japanese manufacturer is not going to concede and will soon also provide developers with access to the seventh core. Officially, no announcements were received from Sony, but the list of changes in the upcoming SDK update for the PlayStation confirms this fact. The only question is whether gamers will notice a difference in picture quality and performance.
