Recently released ps5 has no dedicated graphics card like pc.ps5 and xbox series x works on APU Which gives 10 and 12 teraflops respectively.
How a console APU provide that much performance comparing to the latest desktop apu of similar ryzen processor Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G.it provide just only 1.1 teraflops (FP32).
Why Console apu is 4 times better than desktop apu?

You can't compare the two. A Ryzen APU is mostly CPU with a small section for integrated graphics. A console is a system on a chip (SOC).

It's like trying to compare ships and submarines: just because they both operate in the water doesn't mean you can compare them directly.

The may be a few reasons.First one to think of is Microsoft and sony are selling there consoles at a lose.You think you can get a ryzen 5 8c /16t and a good enough not really great 4k gpu for $599?They sell it at a lose but make there money back via software sales.No change a console will keep the 599 usd for the last several yesrs.Another thing is customization.If you are running from a pc and want to upgrade you can.With SoC it last 2-5y and have to replace everything.I built my pc in 2018 to last around 5y.But it will be cheaper to upgrade my pc than to get a console.
