We don't know how many Cores will be reserved for the OS/Background tasks on next-gen consoles either, might only be 6-cores/12 threads reserved for actual games, who knows?

But... It's still only a 6-core chip and thus pretty uninspiring to me... I have had a 6-core processor or better for almost a decade now.

Whatever amount will be reserved for next gen consoles, the impact of the OS will be nil regardless ... 

Also, you gotta stop thinking in terms of the # of cores. What matters in the end is performance ... 

If you want more cores then AMD are still going to offer higher end models and I doubt your old Sandy Bridge system is going to give the lowest end Matisse much of a fight ...
