Time for the latest instalment of “shit people are saying/guessing about the next Xbox console”! This week we have two reports, one from IGN and the other from Fudzilla.
The IGN rumour says the next console will be out in October or November this year, and that it’s graphics processor will be based on the existing Radeon HD 6670 (pictured). It also states that “in real terms, the Xbox 720’s raw graphics processing power is expected to be six times that of the Xbox 360 and will yield 20-percent greater performance than Nintendo’s forthcoming console, the Wii U.”
The Fudzilla report, meanwhile, reckons the new Xbox’s chip is called “Odan”, and that IBM and Global Foundries began manufacturing it in December 2011.
Next week? Who knows! The Wall Street Journal might say the next Xbox can bake cookies and will be built entirely out of balsa wood at a factory in Belgium.
