Nope im not made of Jelly. I R HUMANS!
I just sat there and wondered what that fool as smoking and to be honest it seems to have been some powerful shit. Either that or he just drank the bong water.

My PC has 3.2Ghz Quad core and my phone has 1.5Ghz...Xbox720 is slower than average PC's and current Xbox 360 which has 3.2Ghz right?

Im guessing you dont realize that in todays computing, when it comes to games, memory speed and gpu clock speed are what matters most, not main CPU speed.

Neither of his claims are true. The Wii U claims and the Durango statements. And strangely enough, this subject is getting a heavy push on certain parts of the internet.

People need to quit looking at the numbers, alot of cpus can do alot more with a 2 GHz than a older 3 GHz processors, efficiency is key with new processors.

knowing this site, someone is going to O.o
Bigpappy  +   599d ago
I have notice that cpu's with higher core counts do not clock as high as those with 1 or 2 cores. But if true, this may be in the early development kits, and are not necessarily the final specs.

Wait ... did.. that hacker just pull that Xbox CPU number out his ass?
Oh. yeah. he did. I didnt know Nintendo is still reeling after that Wii U cpu revelation.
jjb1981  +   599d ago
Ps4 will have a nucleus processor with 32 cores running at 5mhz
TemplarDante  +   599d ago
Also, if the AMD Jaguar core rumors are true for the next xbox, expect 16 Cores at 1.6GHz each. Highly doubtful Msft would go that route though.
So its 16Cores, not 8.
Just because Super DAE sold some poor fool an early devkit on Ebay with an 8Core Atom CPU setup and an Nvidia GPU doesnt mean much, dev kits change frequently as the specs arent finalized till later.

I'm calling bullshit on this one. Just sounds like this guy is somewhat of a 'nintendo fanboy' & hates the fact that there's so much hate regarding the Wii U's shitty CPU clock speed.. now he wants to spread rumors about the next Xbox console being more or less the same.

Wouldn't be surprised at all if we hear about PS4's specs some time soon XD

It's laughable.. Both PS4's & the next Xbox's CPU clock speeds are going to be much faster than 1.6Ghz, I can assure you.

Really so when he released the rumor Wii U cpu & gpu speed everyone was like, Yes its true and Nintendo sucks.but when he revealed that xbox720 rumor specs now everyone is like he is a nintendo fanboy. how delusional are you.
Hahahaha!!!
if you like video games,you dont care about what inside the box just enjoy the games.
Pillsbury1  +   599d ago
I heard it also has 360 horsepower and a hemi v8.
Chrono  +   599d ago
I laugh everytime I see console gamers fighting against each other because of the specs. Just get a gaming PC, it beats everything by miles.
mrbojingles  +   599d ago
Makes sense. The CPU doesn't need to have an insanely high clock like 3.2Ghz guys. It will be a newer, better CPU like the one in the Wii U that can do pretty much everything the Xenon/Cell can do and possibly more.

A solid Quad-Core CPU around 1.6-1.8Ghz will be more than awesome. Stop acting like Raw clock speeds are everything. Maybe it would go up to 2.2ghz but that's the max I'd think
elpresador  +   599d ago
Wow, even if true everyone needs to realize that clock speeds, ESPECIALLY on the main cpu, dont really need to be that high because memory speed and GPU speed are more important. Lets put it this way, if you have say an 8 core cpu running at 1.6 gHz with memory running at say2 gHz it will run circles around say a 3 core 3.2 gHz cpu with memory speed at 500 mHz.

I swear, I cant believe people are still thinking that with cpus that higher clock speeds equl better. That has not been true ever since the firs dual core processors released like what, almost a decade ago?
yewles1  +   599d ago
"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."

He's still mad that there is so much backlash over the CPU speed that even HE forgets the other detriments he brought up including single thread per core, based on 1997 architecture redevised since 2000, weak SIMD, same OoO as Gekko and Broadway (possibly just as limited), etc.
sway_z  +   599d ago
When did everyone become engineers??

It's simple, go with the console you most enjoy the games on...multiplats are gonna be identical on both PS/Xbox next.

Therefore it'll come down to the 1st party exclusives next gen.

All these CPU/GPU number comparisons are utter nonsense!!!
yourfather  +   599d ago
Well some early rumor said it's 16 cores PowerPC A2 and yeah this rumor match A2 rumor
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

(I'm not saying i believe this,i will only wait the official announcement,too much rumor about nextbox/PS4 right now)
hivycox  +   598d ago
Well It seems like the Nintendo haters just got quite huh ;)

Nintendo did the right thing with it's CPU... the same goes to microsoft= I think the xbox durango will also have a GPGPU or a APU... highly graphic oriented console... It isn't less powerfull than the last gen...

Wii U and XBOX will be fine. But the more cores the more I'M curious about kinect 2.0 ...

With the Wii U gamepad the nex gen has already started full circle...

And this time its not about graphic...I'm glad that companies know that
jerethdagryphon  +   598d ago
more cores at sensible speed is just as good if not better then less cores at higher speed
you can do as much on 4 3 gig cores as 8 1.5 gig cores its just the arrangment changes
