Are those rumours under the new porn censorship law in the UK?
Considering rules 34 and 35 of the internet, the answer to your question is a resounding "yes".
I think that is a bad idea... PS5 will be 8-core Zen2.
Considering many PC games are just console ports, you are going to want just as many cores, plus some to handle the OS/background tasks IMO.
This wasn't a big deal with PS4/Xbone because they both use the same very slow AMD Jaguar APUs. So even though they also had 8 total cores, they were very slow even when they came out.
I would go with 12/24 to be future-proof.
Its not as much as comparing mhz to mhz directly, but using it as a scale to extrapolate future performance of Ryzen 3000. Take a current Ryzen, add maybe 5-10% IPC increase, and add 15-20% clock advantage, and you get a theoretical number (or well, a range of numbers).
I can compare current Ryzen to my current CPU, as such I can determine which clock on Ryzen 3000 would equal a 10% single thread performance increase, or such.
Ryzen 3000 also catches up on AVX/AVX2, so thats good.
I use my system both for mild workstation tasks, hence wanting 12 cores, as well as gaming - so high single-threaded.
Its really not that complicated math. Ultimately I'm of course going to read reviews and benchmarks quite thoroughly before buying anything (or not buying, if that may be the case).
This is looking more and more like a chip that will max out at 4.4 ghz, one or all core. No way, shape, or form do I expect any of them to clock near 5 ghz. I honestly hope i'm wrong.10% IPC looks nice but these leaks are quite the debbie downer.
@nevcairiel we agree actually a lot what it still remains still an unknown is the io die effect , improuve the latency between the chiplets comparing to the ccx's right now increase will there be a noticeable performance hit ? no ?
@Mundosold aren't the leaked specs dictating 1.6ghz across all cores? while it is a huge improvement over ps4/ps4pro /xbone etc since we are talking about the same architecture cpu's less than 50% clock i do not worry about the pc 6 core parts not able to match the 8core consoles
From 100 fps to 102? At best ideal super cpu bound maybe 105 fps even on 144 hz a.sync monitor will anyone be able to tell?
