You need to read the article again. I've already read it and know what it says so I'll pull a direct quote.. Not only does he say "the results may provide a possible explanation for the relatively poor performance seen in some gaming workloads. " He also doesn't test any games. So don't infer this as concrete fact. In addition he also continually says the word possible in context of gaming performance, or lack thereof. He doesn't know. He's also not a developer. That would be a wild assumption and it's something only developers have answers too and very few do since I'm sure not many outside the bigger companies have kits yet.So while his article is very informative on Ryzen vs Windows, it is not conclusive of anything else.
What pcper did was to show how the cores talk to each other and show a battery of tests that show this is infact possible and what is the most likely cause of gaming difference to synthetic benchmarks, and to date is one of the few tests into what is actually going on.
They also did a tad clickbaity title for the youtube video aka no silver bullet, but i dont think anyone was ever expecting simply telling the sched/games that these are basically a 2 cpu system integrated into one. One major silver lining is that xbox one's (so been told) work in the exact same way so there is a fix, they just need to impliment it on pc.
Also on the way the cores are made up, your guessing as much as i am, could be 4 +2, 3+3. hell for all we know they might have a 6 core block.
So im not gonna guess what they are, im gonna wait until we see what they are.
