Microsoft‘s Next-gen console, Xbox 720, codenamed Durango, is said to be powered by an 8-core CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz and an 800-MHz graphics processor with 12 shader cores providing a performance of about 1.2 teraflops. This comes on par with specs revealed recently.
The console will sport an 8GB DDR3 RAM with 32 MB of fast embedded SRAM. And for the first time it will be capable of reading Blu-ray discs up to 50GB at x6 read speeds. According to VGleaks, the full reported specs below:
Full specs list:
– 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 fully independent hardware thread with no shared execution resources – each hardware thread can issue two instructions per clockGPU:
– 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 effectively issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per second High-fidelity Natural User Interface (NUI) sensor is always presentStorage and Memory:
– 8 gigabyte (GB) of RAM DDR3 (68 GB/s) – 32 MB of fast 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 present – 50 GB 6x Blu-ray Disc driveNetworking: – Gigabit Ethernet – Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct Hardware Accelerators: – Move engines – Image, video, and audio codecs – Kinect multichannel echo cancellation (MEC) hardware – Cryptography engines for encryption and decryption, and hashing
