Meet SuperDaE. You may remember him from such stories as the guy who tried to sell an Xbox Durango (read: the next Xbox) development kit on eBay, and has since been pouring over more dev kits, whitepapers and manuals to get as much information about Microsoft’s newest console as possible….
How does an eight-core 1.6GHz chip backed by a 768-thread-packing GPU in your Xbox sound? Apparently the Xbox 720, or whatever it ends up getting called, will boast 1.2 teraflops of processing power. Those gun-toting scumbags are never going to look so real when you blow their heads clean-off.
Xbox World has a report on the next Xbox, which will likely be called just Xbox and not Xbox 720 or Windows Xbox 8 or something. The next Xbox is expected to have “four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores” and 8GB of RAM and more goodies.
