Microsoft’s New Xbox 720 Will Be 6x More Powerful [REPORT]

Holy Cow!!!!!!

AMD 6000 series processor?

Quote:
“More power!” You can imagine Steve Ballmer yelling it through Microsoft’s halls but that’s exactly what is happening with the Xbox 720, according to reports from IGN.

The next Xbox — rumored to be the “Xbox 720″ — will ship to retailers in late October or early November 2013 and have six times the processing power of its predecessor, the Xbox 360, sources close to the project told IGN.

The next console will use the AMD 6000 series, which should run similar to the Radeon HD 6670. That all sounds a bit jargon-y but essentially it’s a super-fast processor that supports DirectX11, multi-display output, 3D and 1080p HD. Production of the GPU should start by the end of this year.

All that anticipated extra power on the fabled Xbox 720 isn’t just about graphic fidelity. It allows games to...

Still a very long way away, don't take any of this to seriously but watch the video in this blog post.

I read a top game developer is angry and concerned about when Microsoft 720 is going to be released. The problem is they've spent a lot of time and money building their custom software, getting use to the platform and if 720 gets released anytime soon that'll be for not, and they'll have to start over. I forget who was saying this, think it was EA IDK, was a big one.

I'm ready for a new console. I've had my 360 for like 6 years. I'm not a big PS fan but I would like to also see what they come out with.

Seems to be a rumor like news. Can't conclude until the official news come out. However, i am ready to buy the console if it is available in the market.

WOW, an outdated graphics card. Golly, I sure will buy this .


Jesus, if you make a rumor, at least try to make it a bit more interesting. I am not an AMD graphics guy. Just checked the 6670 (current price 70€) against my GeForce GTX 560 (current price 150€) - Well, the Nvidia costs twice as much but has 3x the power .

So, I hope that Microsoft will use something with a bit more power like the 6950.

Comments are disables and I'm surely not writing him a complaint mail.

Well, disabled comments usually speak for themselves...

A new XBox? WoW. I don't know about the specs guys. They sound a little off. But either way, a new XBox would be awesome. I guess it's about that time anyway. I think the 360 has been out for about 5 years now. And that's usually the lifespan of a console before a new one comes out. I don't know about 720 that doesn't sound so good. Maybe they can come up with something better.

I would be glad to also see a new xbox out.

Mine has became a bit of a nightmare with not reading original Xbox disks sometimes. Music disks, dvd stills still run fine.

I'm sure this will be a brilliant machine but the ones we have just now are pretty cool to, and just as CGI doesn't always make a good movie, better graphics won't always make a better game. Still hope they do a skyrim sequel on the next gen consoles.
