Microsoft chooses AMD Fusion II for XBox 720

KitGuru: "OK, the chances of the next XBox being called 720 are 50:50 at best but, for now, at least you all know what we’re talking about. While the name and final design for the box and packaging might still be up in the air, the internals appear to have been locked down. KitGuru investigates."

So..This is all speculation?....

I heard the 720 will run on pepsi and the PS4 will run on coke.

vsr4978d ago

I hope it will do 720p native

Hideo_Kojima4978d ago

Do they have cold fusion reactors and use the nuclear energy from the water in the coke and pepsi?

Awesome.

Cheeseknight284977d ago

Well, looks like I'm getting a PS4 then.

lzim4978d ago (Edited 4978d ago )

fuck I looked and was all expecting it to be a real breakthrough from all the bloody nonsense those idiots have been perpetrating for all these years.

regardless they have no reason to go back to x86 based chips. It would screw over backwards compatibility which they promised to not fuckup again.

also the article is bullshit. nvidia was NOT always locked in for graphics. whatever cocks they sucked at the eleventh hours royal screwed over a couple of other good candidates.

imvix4978d ago (Edited 4978d ago )

They really dont care about giving people backward compatibility, how else will they sell HD remakes? Not to mention they wont like you playing your old games, they would rather prefer you went out bought new games for the new console, so they can recover money lost on hardware sales.

PC is where the BC is at.

RedDead4978d ago

It's likely by the time the Xbox 720 comes out there will be a 360 emulator for Pc anyway. There always is, I have a PS1, Ps2, snes, Gamecube, GBA and Sega megadrive on my Pc. I feel I deserve a free Ps1/2 etc since I payed for them already. And mine broke.

imvix4978d ago

It takes years before emulation can be perfected.

I can currently play about 95% of the ps2 games on my PC. They run in 1080p @60fps. However there is no sign of 360 or PS3 emulation yet. Hence it probably is a long way and perfecting it will take even longer.

Its insane the gaming library now present on the PC. Includes Arcade, All consoles upto PS2 and Wii. Then you have the PCs own library which is massive as well.

Mystogan4978d ago

Screwed Backwards compatibility? they are talking about the 360 here not the ps3.

You CAN play 90% of all the games the original xbox had.

NeutralGamer4978d ago

Why would you need a Xbox emulator anyway... 75 % of the games are already on the PC...

Substance1014977d ago

Its more like PC has 90% of the games on the Xbox 360. Plus all of them are in HD ;-) an Xbox 360 emulator would be the last thing on the mind of a PC gamer.

Look at the phantom disagree. Maybe from the author?

Vherostar4978d ago

Doubt MS are gonna make another Xbox and right now not even thinking about designing it.

No Way4978d ago

Of course they are..
I highly doubt they wouldn't be.

VenGencE9994977d ago

You MS fans are fooling yourselves if you think there will be another console from MS. They jumped in for a quick buck and they have been successful.

They give 2 craps about the gaming industry and have found their bread and butter with charging people twice for their online service and will ride that out until Live is no longer viable...

starchild4977d ago

Would you take a bet? Put your money where your mouth is. Of course there will be another Xbox. You're an ignoramus if you think otherwise.

hikayu4977d ago

yup , because that's what all the companies are doing now aday : spend billions of dollars to jump in new market just to make couple hundreds millions and then bail . it is so financially viable that it makes my brain MELT !!!

goddam fanboy , GTFO !!

RSX on PS3 is not a 7600GT. It has more raw vertex and pixel shading grunt than a 7900GT.

7600GT: 5 vertex shaders, 12 pixel shaders @ 560mhz

7900GT: 8 vertex shaders, 24 pixel shaders @ 450mhz

RSX: 8 vertex shaders, 24 pixel shaders @500mhz

Furthermore, the 360's Xenos is nothing like the X1900 and is considerably slower.

Xenos: 48 unified shaders @ 500mhz (split for vertex and pixel tasks)

X1900XT: 8 dedicated vertex shaders, 48 dedicated pixel shaders @ 650mhz

likedamaster4977d ago

No links to backup your claims?

trancefreak4977d ago

likedamaster its been discussed a million time and im sure you know how much power your 2005 console has by now.

If you dont believe him google it and post it.

Besides that the article made zero frickin sense. When real specs are released wake me to care.
