I was looking at my processors under the proprieties in my computer. And it listed the same CPU 8 times. Does that mean my computer has 8 CPUs. ( that just sounds wrong) but I have no idea why they would be listed more then once. --- Bender: Well, everybody, I just saved a turtle. What have you done with your lives?
1 CPU with 8 cores. It might be a quad core with hyperthreading, so it's then 8 logical cores. --- He who stumbles around in darkness with a stick is blind. But he who... sticks out in darkness... is... fluorescent! - Brother Silence
So if my computer had 1 CPU with 8 logical cores and the same about of RAM as the PS4 would it mean that my computer is as powerful as the PS4 ? --- Bender: Well, everybody, I just saved a turtle. What have you done with your lives?
Without knowing what your whole computer is like - INCLUDING graphics card, it's impossible to tell you how powerful it is compared to PS4.
Also, you shouldn't be buying the PS4 or any console because it might be more powerful than your PC. You should be buying it for the exclusive games you want to play. --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23
Optimization plays a HUGE role in game performance though. That's why a PS4 can run games at 60fps with half the hardware power of a PC. The developers have to make sure the game is compatible for a wide variety of different computer configurations. That hurts the optimization a lot.
Just imagine what our games would look like if it wasn't that way. --- Don't lie to someone who trusts you. Don't trust someone who lies to you.
