Xbox 720 / New X-Box / X box 720 / Xbox 720 release date, news and rumours / X box 2013 / New Xbox / Specs of Xbox / Xbox 720 Processor Details Rumored to Have Been Leaked / Xbox processor speed

Found this info today on the 720 ( new xbox basically ) . I hope they don’t use that name lol :

We fully expect the Xbox 720 – if it is indeed to be called that – to launch in time for Christmas 2013. If it doesn’t we’ll be absolutely flabbergasted. And with the increasing frequency of new rumours, reports and leaks, an official reveal from Microsoft cannot be too far away. Microsoft recently went on a domain name shopping spree, snapping up a whole bunch of Xbox-related URLs. One of them, and the one that immediately catches the eye, is Xbox8.com. Could this mean that the next Xbox could be called the Xbox Infinity? It’s just speculation at the moment, but it’s possible!

It’s also entirely possible that Microsoft could call it the Xbox 720, but we reckon it’ll have something a bit more exciting up its sleeve.

So what can we expect from the Xbox 720 when it is finally revealed by Microsoft, and when will it finally hit the shelves?

Hold on to your seat, folks, this ride might get a little bumpy. According to known hacker Hector Martin or otherwise known as “Marcan,” the Xbox 720 is set to have a 1.66GHz CPU (Central Processing Unit).

This was in reference to his outing of the Wii U’s processor as “just’ being at 1.2GHz, while the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is at 549MHz.  He posted the statement over on Twitter and when people started pointing out how “weak” Nintendo’s Wii U was, he tweeted the following (via NeoGAF).

If you want more evidence that MHz isn’t everything, a little birdie points out that Durango (Xbox 720) is specc’ed to have a 1.6GHz CPU.

Food for thought. (And don’t bother asking me who that little birdie is.)

For reference, the current-gen Xbox 360 is at 3.2GHz, broken down to one CPU with three cores running at 3.2GHz and each one is capable of two threads.

So, if you’re like me, chances are you’ve noticed the numbers and now wondering why Microsoft would make it weaker compared to the console they have now. First off, keep in mind that this is a rumor, so there is a possibility that Marcan’s “birdie” told him wrong or was mistaken. Secondly, clock speed is just one thing and we still don’t have a clue how many cores the Xbox 720 will even have. And while I’m not a technical person by any means, there’s obviously a lot more regarding this than just the speed determing how strong the CPU is…in short, don’t jump the shark and don’t overreact.

Keep in mind, though, that up to now, Microsoft has yet to confirm, deny or say something regarding any of its next-gen plans and the rumors surrounding it. So again, take all this with a grain of salt. The last we heard of the Xbox 720 or Durango’s processor was way back in September when we posted this report on how purported chip-maker AMD is having troubles having its chips pass the testing phase.

Hopefully, they sorted that little snag out. I mean, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with bad memories when it comes to Xbox’s and faulty hardware (read: 3RL). 

So, what do you think of this “rumor?” Could it be true but we just don’t know the whole story yet? For those who in the know, is this even a cause for concern at all?

Normally I’d have blogged happily about all these rumours but given the info is right here , you can forgive me for pasting to make it easier for you guys to catch up on all the xbox related info. Exciting times. Just need more info on the ps4 now! I know a lot of above is rumors and speculation , but it is interesting to see what people are talking about.

  1. I have also read the Xbox 720 is suppose to be the strongest of the 3 consoles. Too many rumors going around. I posted something on the rumors i read about also. Only to be told by a more creditable site that the rumors have many flaws.

    • Yeh, I heard it was to be more powerful than the PS4 . I also heard Sony is in trouble and are stalling on the production of it. I figured I might post a couple of rumors hoping that there is some fact in there . As long as the new generation is good for the consumer I am not that bothered tbh heh.
