"Xbox is about to become the next water cooler”
We are talking about a chipset that hasnt even been taped out vs one that apparently has (again rumoured).
And I really dont get the 2gb thing, it just seems so counter productive (yes I understand the GDDR5 restriction).
About the only thing I have seen even remotley ture to "specs" is that Sony=All AMD, MS=IBM+AMD.
I think thats about the only thing anyone can concretly say about any of these rumours.
As Blig said, people maasage these numbers around to make them seem legit, every time I see them something has been tweaked , yet they are all supposdly from the same source.
"If" these rumours are true, then Sony is waiitng on a CPU, with an indefinite release date, and both systems will feature a practically identical GPU.

So, time for a little speculation. Oban is being made by IBM primarily, so that almost definitively puts to bed the idea of an x86 CPU that has been floating. We said we were 99+% sure that the XBox Next/720 is a Power PC CPU plus an ATI GCN/HD7000/Southern Islands GPU, and with this last data point, we are now confident that it is 99.9+%. Why? Several licensing agreements that cover what can be made where will enrich a fleet of lawyers if Oban is x86, but do not preclude the possibility entirely, hence the last .1%.
A slide on core hardware indicates that the next Xbox will be designed to be scalable in the number of CPU cores and their frequencies. Microsoft appears to have been debating whether to use six or eight ARM or x86 cores clocked at 2GHz each with 4GB of DDR4 memory alongside three PPC cores clocked at 3.2GHz each for backwards compatibility with existing Xbox 360 titles.
Who want some ?!
Come on guys it's just a rumour.

Too bad it only proves to video game haters that video gamers really do have nothing better to do with their time.
DX 11.5? I'm not sure even Microsoft has an 11.5 specification for hardware, even in a lab. Seems rather dubious. I would imagine that there is some level of comparable OpenGL hardware spec or projected spec, but I would highly doubt that it would carry a DX style nomenclature.
The surest sign that you are on the right side of a debate is when you find yourself against those who are stuck in the past because they have no future.
Its all bs as far as I'm concerned until I hear Sony and MS officially announce their specs.

Fake specs are fake.
but not this one.
see the the responses from the people in the know when I 1st posted the specs on NeoGaf they all said the same thing these are the right target specs from the dev-kits at the end of last year but the part about Radeon HD 7970 is just a misunderstanding because of the translation & it's just saying that the chip is from the same family that's in the 7970.

There has been no confirmed devkit, and like I pointed out, the devkit that has the more solid rumor of being out there sounds like this 360.5 with Oban with an E3 2013 reveal. There hasn't been anything even remotely solid about any such devkit for the PS4 except for a few actual insiders saying it is a monster (I don't consider the homeless guy using a library internet account to login to neogaf an "insider" except maybe inside the library). I really don't have that kind of spare time, or at least time that I just want to waste away, to look up all these PS4 "references" but here are a couple for amusement, apparently long forgotten by the "experts" on neogaf (the reason one guy calls it "old" is exactly what I said, this latest is just a modified version of the old one from 2011). Look at the dates:

I hope games remain Sony's #1 focus and all that other $#@! comes later. I don't want the focus to be like the rumored next box.

Just spent an hour reading the neogaf thread (only half of it though)
If you think about it, an APU with quad 3.2Ghz cores AND a 1843Gflops GPU (more than a friggin gtx 580) seems like impossible to cool.I wonder when a nuclear warhead goes off, does the frame rate of real life drop?
