Why is this even an article? We already knew it was Zen 2 based. You can confirm this info from April of this year when Sony announced it.

The new information is the apparent confirmation of eight cores and sixteen threads. That's a big deal given the cost of an 8-core Zen 2 CPU today.

We already knew it was 8 cores, it's not difficult to imagine 16 threads. I mean Zen is a multi-threaded monster, why take away it's best performance factor?

If sony was using off the shelf parts, it wouldn't cost much of a difference to have it. Though it's more than likely custom. If it's already there, why not keep it? Just can't see it being too much of a cost difference factor. The way Zen is designed as well it might even be more detrimental to remove it. Though that's speculation.


If anything the biggest announcement this shows, is really just how expensive the console will be.

That was not officially confirmed. That was assumed given the core count on today's consoles.

I think NeverBackDown is right here, Mark Cerny said in his interview with Wired in April it would be 8 cores, the name and confirmation of SMT is the new bit here I think

Wired's Mark Cerny Interview (April):
Quote:
It’s why we’re sitting here, secreted away in a conference room at Sony’s headquarters in Foster City, California, where Cerny is finally detailing the inner workings of the as-yet-unnamed console that will replace the PS4
[.....]
PlayStation’s next-generation console ticks all those boxes, starting with an AMD chip at the heart of the device. (Warning: some alphabet soup follows.) The CPU is based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line and contains eight cores of the company’s new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. The GPU, a custom variant of Radeon’s Navi family, will support ray tracing, a technique that models the travel of light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments.

It was confirmed dude. You even did an article on it.

Like c'mon man. You made an article yesterday about AMD rumours being false because they were already confirmed. You just did that here. Only new bit is SMT, but that's not surprising as I said above.

Not taking sides here but I'm not seeing anything in the two articles above stating that hyperthreading/SMT would be implemented in the PS5 CPU unlike the new information meaning an article was indeed merited.
