Why the Xbox 360 has three cores

Posted on Thursday, November 03 2005 @ 05:20:52 CET by

The Inq today explains why the Xbox 360 console will have three cores. It's because two of them will render graphics and the third will handle all the rest.
If you code things right, that will leave you with a single core for the 'game' parts, basically everything but graphics. According to another MS person, a single core is more than sufficient to make a great game, and you have effectively double that if you are exploiting every last drop of GPU capability.
