Makes me wonder how this will relate to things like async compute and this is query more then anything but isnt ryzen in scorpia, or should i say raven ridge. If that is the case could we see something akin to it sees zen and then has a low level api like scorpio does.

Nothing has been revealed about Scorpio's CPU yet, though I think a Ryzen upgrade would be too soon, especially since the Xbone is an 8-core.

Even if they decided to go quad-core, 8 thread it would be a really weird change when coming to playing older titles. Hard to know what Microsoft is doing with Scorpio on the CPU side.

Well im not so much thinking of ryzen, but its apu brother/sister whatever it is, its just really hard to get leak and hype untangled when it comes to the scorpio, but as it is going tobe amd then i do wonder if they would go so far off zen when there main plan is to unify console gaming and pc gaming and lap up all the rewards from that plan.

Might be a stupid question, but I'm wondering if we're able to start actual ordinary (or heavy duty) software in game mode as well for whatever reason
Productive software is most likely already coded to make use of every core in an efficient way, but maybe, just maybe, there is a little gain in performance!

For games like TW where they are really really single thread bound, this would probably help quite a bit.
