i can't wait for next gen this will be the largest performance jump ever!!!!

Nitrowolf22553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

10GB of Ram? that is just nonsense. Even for today high end PC games they need about half of that only to run most if not all PCgames at max and there is still a lot of room for improvement. IDK it could be possible, but i highly doubt it. We will see at least 1-2 maybe as far as 4 GB of ram in next console Gen, but 10GB lol. I don't think Devs will even need that much. Unless MS plans on having some major changes and have the device running multiple things at once or something, 10GB is just a bit overkill i think.

Also if the next xbox has Window 8 then it's becoming more like a PC. The issue with this is how insecure Window software has always been, so it might be a crossbreed of game OS and Window OS on the next box. I can see where the Ram could be needed if it reuired the game to use a lot of it and you can access a bunch of gaming software.

would have been more believable if he would have said 8 or hell even 12.

10gb is just an odd number for me to take this remotely seriously. Is this seriously the best he could come up with this week?

Redgehammer2553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

I have been wondering if it was possible to have two SOC's in the same box. If possible, MS could have a dedicated SOC for say, IPTV, running the dasboard, Kinect, and the other SOC be more for the gaming side. Continuing on with this conjecture, 5 Gigs of RAM per SOC, with Crossfire between the two GPU's might be possible. Possible?

Vitalogy2553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

Totally agree with you Nitro. It makes no sense at all in a console and even if they're planning to have multi-tasking it's not only the RAM that's needed, a good CPU and GPU aswell and I can only imagine the cost of production for a console like that and what would be the cost for the end user.

TheBrit2553d ago

the next Xbox hasn't been rumored to have windows 8 in it, windows 8 is going to have Xbox live built into it though.

awi59512553d ago

8gigs is the sweet spot 4 will be outdated when the new xbox launches.

awi59512553d ago

Well they could allow users to add their on ram its been done before for the n64. After i put in that ram card back in the day the n64 games ran 4 times as fast. Microsoft should let their users decide and have 2 dims on the back of the console or something.

is they add 10GB of RAM in their next console, it could destroy gaming. Devs will then dump millions more into making their games use all the power and wont see returns in sales if games continue to sell at their current rates and current prices.
10GB of RAM = more expensive games, and my guess would be upwards at around $80-$90 a copy at first, which would be just ludicrous.

Venjense2553d ago

Devs will charge for MP next gen - people with popular games will make more than ever before.

Persistantthug2553d ago

I mean, 8GB is very doable, especially when XBOX 360 won't come any sooner than Holiday 2013 which is 2 1/2 years from now.

Maybe the extra 2 Gigs comes from the Graphics unit.

Just sayin.

hiredhelp2553d ago

10GB WTF. for what exactly is going to be using that amount of ram. lol 10gb not to mention the cost. ROFL

Persistantthug2552d ago

In fact, here's 8 Gigs of mediocre ram for 60'ish bucks: ( )

If you think about it.....8Gigs of ram and 2 gigs of video ram is fairly/pretty common today.

So what's so unbelievable about this 2 years from now?

Keep in mind, Game consoles aren't just game machines anymore....they aren't today, and they never will be ever again.

hiredhelp2552d ago

Companys wont massmproduce something that costs that. Well at least thats my thought as for 10gb being realistic. Its mot impossible but i was mearly stating compared to pc's of today with the xbox is pritty much simular setup. This would mean w whole new socket' just for the console and special ram again for use oly with 360. If thats the case then yes its possible.

But if you saying for example low end ram on market of today of 10gb be too costly. To mass produce. Tjey make every part as cheap as poss cost efective so they can make money. As all buisnesses would m8.

I know HHG has been right about some things in the past but I don't see 10gb of RAM happening for either next gen console.

Dark3602553d ago

"Cocaine is a hell of a drug"

HHG = Delusional


Megaton2553d ago

Utterly pointless. You don't even need more than 4gb - 6gb for a beastly gaming rig. HHG has absolutely no clue what he's talking about, but that's nothing new, especially when it comes to tech.

IRetrouk2553d ago

i dont know, ram seems cheap enough now, i got my gaming pc over a year ago and it came with 6 gig of ram, the pc itself cost just under 900 pounds so by the time the next consoles are released 10 gig will be cheap enough to put into the consoles, whether we need that much ram or not is another topic.

BrianG2554d ago

RAM is crucial for game development, but 10GB seems like overkill to some extent.

Aside from obviously needing a much better GPU and CPU to actually take advantage of that extra RAM.

And how can MS come out first if the Wii U is launching in 2012, supposedly? Nintendo does count whether we like it or not.

Either way, I'm interested to see what happens.

consolez_FTW2554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

Yeah man,10gigs of RAM on a gaming is console is overkill. Gaming PCs today don't even require that much.

But here's a quote from Mr. HipHopGamer on why it would be so cool /s!

"Yo! Imagine 10gigs on the next Xbox with COD dawg! it would be sooo scary yo!"

At least I think that's the quote, I was just clicking to random points on the video and found it.

Raendom2553d ago

Oh, hip hop! *hands on hips, head tilted*

Shackdaddy8362554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

10 gigs is so unneeded...

They are not going to put in 10 gigs of ram. I can tell you that right now.

awi59512553d ago

Well knowing microsoft alot of ram is probably reserved for some reason other than games.

hiredhelp2553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

Like what kinnectamals 2. dude doesnt matter what else they have up there sleeve youll never use 10gb. not that on todays pc's you able to run 10gb cos doesnt work like that.
tripple channel and dual channel. 10gb is a odd value. so just on that reason alone i call BS.

Sanii2554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

Any PC can run games and the OS with 6gb of ram perfectly. Why the hell would you need 10? Wouldn't that kinda be redundant. Cost is also an issue to consider too. I just don't see it happening. That being said, I can't wait to hear about the hardware in the new xbox. It should be interesting
