Xbox ONE Rumored Specs, Details
Xbox ONE or Xbox 720 is going to be powered heavily by the Cloud. Gaming and resuming on the go. Also, it would be voice enabled, everywhere.
The specs are very similar to PS4, using the same AMD Jaguar processor.
CPU: Custom x86-64 8-Core AMD Jaguar processor. 1.8TFlops
GPU: AMD next-generation Radeon graphics processor
RAM: Unified 8GB GDDR5 memory (shared by CPU, GPU)
Several rumors claim that suggested the console will use two GPUs in tandem, although this won’t be a ‘CrossFire’ configuration like the one you’d find on a gaming PC. Considering complex hardware architectures have been a real failing of many consoles in the past, this seems a little outlandish – simple architecture is easier for developers to get to grips with quickly. The rumours could refer to a powerful main GPU and smaller, media-centric GPU designed to reduce power consumption when watching videos or playing music.
