Quote:
The next Xbox will ship to retailers in late October or early November of next year with six times the processing power of the Xbox 360, sources close to the project have told IGN.

Following initial reports from tech blogs Fudzilla and SemiAccurate, our sources have confirmed that mass production of the system's GPU will indeed begin by the end of 2012 but will not, however, be based on AMD's 7000 series Southern Islands GPU. Instead, the processor will be derived from the 6000 series, which was introduced last year. More specifically, it will be akin to the Radeon HD 6670, which offers support for DirectX11, multidisplay output, 3D and 1080p HD output. The chip currently has a market price of upwards of $79.99.

I find the GPU choice kind of funny... they are going with an outdated chip already and ignoring the 7xxx series...

6 times? Pfff.

PCs are 10 times more powerful than current consoles.

By the time these new consoles come out, PC hardware will be 20 times more powerful than them (the new ones, not the current gen).


Consoles will never catch up to the awesomeness that is PC gaming.

It's not exactly impressive from a pc user's point of view, but for consoles that is a major step up.

What? Wii-U uses similar to HD 4850/4870, which is far stronger than HD 6670. I'd guess this article is bull.. I'm expecting HD 6850/6870 on 720.

The 6670 isn't even any faster than an 8800GT in terms of raw power, which is like 5 years old.

Consoles are so behind, it's not even funny.
