The PlayStation 4 is about to (technically) get even more powerful, as Sony has issued a “stealth update” unlocking more of the console’s computer power for developers.
The PS4 houses an eight-core CPU in its sleek, angular chassis, but anyone trying to make games for the machine only has access to six of them. Until now, those other two CPU cores were reserved for running the operating system, with utilising the GPU being emphasised over placing more demands on the main chip.
