Rumor Water: Xbox 720 Will Boast Six Times The Power Of Xbox 360


One Xbox 720 rumor for the day wasn’t enough, folks. Here’s another to get your next-gen juices flowing: sources close to IGN have told the site that it’s quite true what was reported earlier, that components for the upcoming console will go into mass production this year.

The sources agreed with the earlier report which claims the core will be based on an AMD GPU, but went the 6000 series instead, more directly the Radeon HD 6670 and not Southern Islands 7000 series.

“In real terms, the Xbox 720′s raw graphics processing power is expected to be six times that of the Xbox 360 and will yield 20-percent greater performance than Nintendo’s forthcoming console, the Wii U,” IGN reports.

    doubt it it’ll probably just be as powerful as the wii U same for the ps4. i really don’t see the purpose of sony and microsoft coming out with way more powerful tech. graphics can’t get any better from the way i see it maybe they should focus on performance instead.

    in that case you should go look up the samaratan demo, unlimited detail demo, or ray tracing.
    graphics can get heaps better!
    im really starting to wonder if were better holding off till 8K res technology is ready.
    sharp showed a prototype 8K resolution TV at CES and said there looking at a late 2014 release into the market.
    releasing new consoles a year before new TV tech releases would really be a waste!
    but then you dont want to hold them off, and then find out its not possible yet just like what happened with laser TVs.

    @Ghost and Nick: For me to be satisfied, next-gen should be at least ten times better the current.
