    Xbox 720 Specs: Eight-core CPU, 8 GB RAM, Windows 8 Kernel?

    ox 720 Specs: Eight-core CPU, 8 GB RAM, Windows 8 Kernel?

    Posted in News Tags: AMD, next-gen, Xbox 720


    Microsoft Xbox 720 could have an eight-core CPU, according to new leaks.
    This latest rumour is via BD, who posts regularly on TGFC, which is a Chinese forum. What’s special about him? Well, he is an ex-Ubisoft employee, and claims to know all information about the Xbox 720, including the RAM, and plenty of other stuff.According to him, the Xbox 720 will have aneight-core CPU, and

    an 8800 series GPU
    . This also fits in with our previous report where we mentioned that the Xbox 720 could be running on a AMD HD 8000M graphics card.
    It is also said that Microsoft will be using Windows 8 kernel for the system, which is pretty straightforward, as they have been pushing it a lot. He said that it will have 8 GB memory and a 640 GB hard drive.

    Treat this with a grain of salt obviously, as nothing is confirmed yet. However, these are times when insiders can leak out information for a variety of reasons. E3 2013 will be held on June 13, so not long to go before Microsoft finally unveils the system to the world.

    I wonder could this be fact of just another attempt at making us all wet ourselves with excitement

    That's what usually happens, everyone starts guessing and making predictions and various "leaks" from oddball sources start appearing and it just snowballs!

    All aboard the hype train!

    The specifications look quite satisfactory. Hopefully the final specs will be somewhat similar. The design wont be as the one on the picture most probably.

    xbox360 is 3x faster than Wii U at certain tasks already. This is very close to what we are getting. Sony is on a very similar route with just the RAM being different.

    I'm hyped

    Must be TRUE if this happened!!

    now "BD" comes back into the play and indirectly confirms this specs:

    You're gone, I said you divulge sensitive information sent letters to the MS PR tomorrow.
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    Doesn't have as much to do with games as it does software being ported from windows 8 and windows phone 8.

    if it turns out to be true

    then that means, a true competition between Sony and MS will get going and the games and stuff that will come out by both. Will making gaming exciting again

    That would be sweet. That is my favorite choice so far. Followed by Xbox Infinity.

    Kind of, those little applets would kind of make it easier.
    At the end of the day the original Xbox had an NT kernel, and at that time no one programmed games for NT.
    Its really about the I/O system.

    These specs, arent really anything new, we've been expecting all this for sometime.

    You know something about the PS4 specs? I haven't heard much, that would indicate parity. But then I haven't heard much outside of the A10, 7xxx rumor.
    This would indicate that would be inadequate to gain parity.

    But then again, parity isn't really needed, just a degree of compatibility.

    One thing's for sure, Sony ninjas have been really doing their job keeping everything under wraps after the A10 rumor 'leak' but all devs at gaf and b3d have said that they are very similar

    I believe this is probably because Sony are still a few more months behind the dev cycle to be honest.

    But as I have said previously, it will come down to how they are put together, more than the parts. MS had an extremely smart bus design last time.

    yeah sony seems to be slightly behind. I remember one guy saying on gaf that some AMD insider said their priority is on durango at this point

    I wonder if they are 8 threads rather than cores in the consoles.
    4 jaguar cores @ 1.6Ghz with 2 threads each
