Some bold new claims are floating around concerning the Xbox 720’s power capabilities. The word is that the next-generation will be six times as powerful as the Xbox 360 thanks to a monster Radeon HD 6670-style processor, leaving the Wii U in the dust.
The console market is a tricky one to enter. Make a new machine and you can bet it’ll be swiftly outclassed. That’s what Nintendo might be sweating, if rumours that this next Xbox will land around Christmas 2013 are to be believed.
Whether there’s any truth at all to these rumours, we can be sure that Microsoft is working on the next Xbox behind closed doors. The current word suggests that the console will get an airing at this year’s E3, before hitting shelves late next year.
If all that’s true, you can expect the new Microsoft console to proffer some serious power. As to whether that power truly is 6 times better than the current generation? Time will tell.
