Apparently MS knew all alone the PS4 was more powerful from all sides,developers most have tip MS on the PS4 out performing the xbox one silly.
So MS decided to bump the GPU to gain something,as well as the CPU to try in both instances to give the false impressions that the xbox one was actually faster.
This is back up by Albert Panello twit about how 1.7 > 1.6 when the CPU was bump,people are use to see numbers and most console owners are morons who would only focus on 1.7> 1.6 and claim it is faster,it happen even here,while on the same hardware 1.7 > 1.6,the PS4 CPU final speed was never stated.
This new evidence that the PS4 CPU was performing faster than the xbox one that came in yesterday are not new,a few weeks go a Sunspider test put the PS4 mopping the floor with the xbox one on internet browsing speed.
It was 2+ times faster in Sunspider and 5 times faster in Kraken.
It could be 2 difference things,1 the PS4 CPU is actually faster and sony keep it under wraps,2 the PS4 has more free CPU resources than the xbox one which is something i have argue my self many times here.
MS really screwed up the xbox one,even having the same CPU they with higher clock speed they end up having inferior performance,the way the xbox one was build to be a resources hug,has allot to do with it to,10% GPU reservation is also very high,and while they claim they will give something back,knowing how Kinect is mandatory and how snap and the metro Ui works i don't think they have much room to get here,not more than 5% i will say.
Now some units are beginning to smock,if this is true MS could have potentially had a problem on their hands,and is probably do to that over clock in CPU and GPU.
