NowGamer: Is Microsoft showing game developers next-gen hardware right now?
If Crytek are powering into next-gen then it most definitely will look goooooood!
Interesting...very interesting! Not just for Xbox 360, but for the possibility of new next-gen games on both Sony and Nintendo hardware.
Its about time we get some leaked specs on these new consoles
I can give you my ideal specs and what I think is actually in the consoles. CPU = Power7, Power7+, or possibly Power8. WiiU uses 45 nm CPU = Power7(4,6,8 cores) Most likely 4 for WiiU. Still 16 threads is more than double the PS3/X360 CPU power. Clock is likely in the 3.x range. Although it could be higher than expected and hit 4 Ghz. X720 is rumored on 32nm = Power7+ Same core possibilities (4,6,8) Possibly more memory and possibly slightly higher clock speed. PS4 is mystery. Its most likely on 32nm Power7+ CPU. Although some speculate PS4 coming in 2014. If so then it could be sporting a Power8 CPU which hits the market in Early/Mid 2013 sometime. GPUs I am hoping WiiU has a GPU that hits 1-1.5 Tflops. So it can sport 720p even on Unreal Engine 4 and maybe CryEngine 4.0 as well. I am hoping PS4/X720 hit around 2.5-3.0 Tflops with a GPU so we can see 1080p on every new game. Although many expect the mid-range GPUs which aim for 1-1.5 or so Tflops. Strangly it seems that AMD is rumored or said to hold all three consoles in its grasp for making HD GPUs.
Okay, so we've got this Durango summit going on right now and an Unreal Engine 4 reveal next week... Something is brewing.
CryEngine+next-gen = my money
summed up quite nicely.
So reveal this year and possible release next year. Ok im good.. Ill buy it after my pc upgrade..so 2014 will be my target purchase date.
CryEngine & and Unreal 4 are being shown to entice developers to support them since developers are starting to work on ps4/next xbox launch titles for next year! :)
cryengine 3- maximum polygons!!
Dodge durango and crytek? Hmmm a racing game ?
HA! HA! He said dodge!
Xbox 720 was just 100% confirmed by this tweet. Thank You Crytek employee.
i really hope all the rumors about durango being the nextgen xbox are true. although durango could be more of a cloud gaming service similar to onlive....who knows. As much as i love my 360, i really just want a new nextgen console, the 360 is practically maxed out on the hardware aspect of things (although new engine updates and mods do help squeeze out more performance here and there)and i just want something new to replace it. Hopefully crossplatforming is more mainstream with the new xbox, as id love to play some pc gamers. and i actually cant wait to see the new generation of RPGs and FPS games....... it should be good!.
