NextBox Said To Be 6 Times More Powerful Than Xbox 360

More gossip hits the net today on the subject of the next generation of consoles, with the ‘Xbox 720’s’ processing power hitting the spotlight. 

Sources cited as being ‘close to the project’s development’ are claiming that the next generation of Xbox is to run on an extremely powerful processor based off AMD’s 6000 series, meaning that the console will be essentially a whopping six times more powerful than the Xbox 360.

The processor itself is said to be 20% more powerful than the release specs of the Wii U and offers support for DirectX11, multidisplay output, 3D and 1080P HD output.

Rumours are also flying about projected release dates, and the same sources are claiming that the ‘720’ will be shipped to retailers in late 2013, specifically around October or early November. Developers meanwhile are apparently going to get their hands on development kits of Microsoft’s next console later this year, around August.

Of course, take any rumours with a grain of salt as the final Xbox product could be nothing like this, but wouldn’t it be pretty exciting if it was?
