As the road to E3 rolls out, more leaks about next-gen console come trundling into view. The latest breach, courtesy of VGLeaks, has exposed what appears to be the technical specifications of the next-gen Xbox console, originally leaked under the codename Project Durango.
According to the information published on the site, it appears the next Xbox will be powered by an 8-core CPU running at 1.6GHz, alongside 8GB of DDR RAM. The machine also boasts a custom 800-MHz graphics processor, which “can fruitfully issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per following”.
The console also contains 8GB of RAM and a Blu-ray disc drive, which can read 50GB discs, 32 MB of quick embedded SRAM, As far as its connectivity goes, it has Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct networking.
Most fascinatingly, the device contains something called Kinect multichannel echo cancellation (MEC) hardware, which suggests the console will work with the next iteration of Kinect motion control.
The full leaked specs are as follows:
- x64 Architecture
- 8 CPU cores running at 1.6 gigahertz (GHz)
- each CPU thread has its own 32 KB L1 instruction cache and 32 KB L1 data cache
- each module of four CPU cores has a 2 MB L2 cache resulting in a total of 4 MB of L2 cache
- each core has one completely independent hardware thread with no shared execution resources
- each hardware thread can issue two instructions per clock
- custom D3D11.1 class 800-MHz graphics processor
- 12 shader cores providing a total of 768 threads
- each thread can perform one scalar multiplication and addition operation (MADD) per clock cycle
- at peak performance, the GPU can fruitfully issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per following
High-fidelity Natural User Interface (NUI) sensor is always bestow
Storage and Memory:
- 8 gigabyte (GB) of RAM DDR3 (68 GB/s)
- 32 MB of quick embedded SRAM (ESRAM) (102 GB/s)
- from the GPU’s perspective the bandwidths of system memory and ESRAM are parallel providing combined peak bandwidth of 170 GB/sec.
- Hard drive is always bestow
- 50 GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive
- Gigabit Ethernet
- Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct
- Go engines
- Image, video, and audio codecs
- Kinect multichannel echo cancellation (MEC) hardware
- Cryptography engines for encryption and decryption, and hashing
Micorsoft has yet to confirm whether the list of leaked specs are genunine, but if they are, one has to wonder that if the leaks keep appearance at this rate, what will be left to reveal at this year’s E3? Watch this space…
