Microsoft Xbox 720 to get 16-core PowerPC?

Posted on Wednesday, April 11 2012 @ 20:18:58 CEST by


CVG heard rumors that Microsoft's next-gen Xbox "Durango" console will feature a 16-core IBM PowerPC processor and a graphics card on par with AMD's Radeon HD 7000-series (which is kinda broad).
XBW's sources suggest Durango's devkit is powered by a state of the art 16-core IBM Power PC CPU with a graphics processor on par with AMD's Radeon HD 7000-series graphics cards, as previously rumoured.

The 16-core processor in particular would be a surprising addition, as it's future tech even for high-end PCs. AMD launched the world's first 16-core processor for the business market in November last year.

XBW explains: "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."
