Current consoles has allocated 7.5 CPU cores for games.
Next gen console CPU may have hyperthreading, hence a single CPU core with SMT for the OS.
The coming generation will be a repeat of X1 and PS4 when they launched with 7790/7850 level hardware.
I disagree with the above statement due to Xbox Scarlett's APU size and higher than 256 bit bus GDDR6 configuration.
Xbox One's 7790 GPU size was gimped by Kinect's cost allocation.
Without Kinect's interference, Xbox One X has the largest games console GPU in history which pushed towards 285 mm2 area size which is slightly less than NVIDIA GP104 class's 314 mm2.
Xbox One X has 44 CU GCN which is second tier GPU below 1st tier Vega 56/64 CU GCN.
36 CU GCN is 3rd tier CU GCN.
Xbox Scarlet's large APU and GPU bias large size continues from XBox One X NOT Xbox One.
My speculation for Xbox Scarlett is another NAVI between RX 5700 XT 40 CU and NAVI's Vega II 64 CU replacement.
Xbox One X's updated GCN 44 CU doesn't exist as a PC SKU i.e. there's no Polaris/Vega 44 CU that replaced R9-390X.
