If they have working versions out in the wild then you can guarantee that the specs ( i.e what graphics card ) we finalised a good 12 months ago, way before the newer cards released.

I don't believe that the new xbox is going to be running a 6670. This is a budget chip that really has no business being in anything gaming related. If anything I would believe something equivelent to a 6850 or better would be developed.

Most likely Microsoft is going to have a custom chip created for them that may equal a chip that is made now, but I doubt it's going to be as weak as a 6670.

When articles say something is snuck in. All I can imagine is like in a raining evening, some guy in a trecnh coat carry his xbox in a leather brief case, dashing through the shadows of london.ninja.gif Anyone else get that? No? I think playing LA Noire has its lasting effect.jealoussmiley.gif

If there will be 1440p, I wonder how it will be able to do it considering HDMI only supports up to 1080p. Maybe it will have dual-link DVI?

There won't be. That would make no sense whatsoever.

People will have a hard time pointing the differences between the two because the devices’ hardware will be that powerful.

People have a hard time simply seeing the pictures there's so small - and even then they're no that impressive.

What a load of horse poop.

for everyone who's claiming the new xbox would sport a new 7000 series chip, you guys have to understand the R&D time cycle.
there's no way they would be sporting a chip similar to the 7000 series for something that's on beta/demoing already. They would have been working on this console for over a year, which hey no 7000 series was out yet.

And for those who say 1440 resolution is going to be coming standard for the next gen, considering you have more than half the current market using 720p TVs, there's no incentive for the consumer to buy a new TV.

Video Game sales have been declining recently. If you factor in the booming "casual market", the demand for traditional console gaming will be even less.

Majority of people will just be happy being able to play Facebook/flash games/iOS games on their TV.

You gotta think of it this way. Moore's Law for example. 6 years ago, we had 1/6 the speed of the technology. I might have the numbers wrong (actually I know I do) but either way, 7 years from December 2013 (when the next xbox will be released) we will be in 2020, do you really think that we will still be using 1080p as a standard in 2020? I don't. 1440p sounds much more logical. Native 1440p is 4x as much as most TV broadcasts (720p), by then I think the bandwidth able to push 1440p@120hz will be more than possible. I see no reason in limiting us at true 1080p until 2020.

What happened to TV sets lasting 20 years? Growing up, we had the same Quasar 25" TV for like 20 years..

I suppose teenagers are used to see new technologies pop up every other week, not that I'm old (24) but I know that the main TV in the house was bought in 89 when I was still a baby and was only retired in 2004 when it died, I still use radios that are older than me on a regular basis. The constant madness of upgrading everything you have didn't really begin before the end of the 90's/beginning of the new millenium. People don't care about resolution, most of them have no idea what it is, they upgraded to an HD set because it was bigger, slimmer and cooler, good luck trying to sell them a new one because it has more pixels.

Have they even announced the name yet? People have been calling it 720 forever, because its 360 times 2, but Microsoft never called it anything (as far as I know, which is why I am asking).

Right now, the general consensus is code name Durango.
