Sony updates PS4 SDK to allow access to 7th CPU core
Sony has updated the PS4 software development kit to allow developers access to a previously unused CPU core.
Microsoft updated the Xbox One last year to allow access to the seventh CPU core,allowing games to run more smoothly on the system.
“Core 6 is now denoted as shared, and for new captures, Razor splits the activity on that core between user and system,” reads the Sony update. “Old captures still show core 6 as a system core, as was accurate at the time they were made.”
