A new rumor regarding the next generation of Xbox Gaming console (won’t release in 2012), codenamed “Durango,” has popped up in the blogosphere. According to this latest rumor, the next-gen console would feature a 16-core IBM Power PC CPU, a CPU whose graphics processing is competent enough for AMD’s Radeon HD 7000 range of high-end graphic cards.
This rumor contradicts with info that we received earlier; earlier it was suggested that the new Xbox would have a processor with “four to six” cores. About a month ago, Microsoft sent out devkits to Xbox developers, reportedly following the secret London developers meeting in February.
An excerpt from an upcoming issue of a Gaming magazine suggests,
“It’s a ridiculous amount of power for a games machine – too much power, even. But remember, Kinect 2 could chew up four whole cores tracking multiple players right down to their fingertips, so it’ll need a lot of power.”
This excerpt confirms that the next-gen Xbox is aimed at providing extremely high-quality gaming experience to passionate players worldwide.
