The rumored Xbox Durangomay have gotten its innards spilled with the supposed leak of an internal planning diagram of the console’s architecture. Not only does the document give us a look under the hood of Microsoft’s next generation console, revealing several secrets, but this latest leak jives with the rumor that Redmond has begun test fabrication of the system’s innards.
Contained within the next Xbox will be a quadcore processor based on AMD’s 1.6GHZ APU technology, 8GBs of DDR3 ram, an 800 MHZ graphics processor, support for N Networking, a Blu Ray Drive (although it is unknown if it will play movies) and an HDMI 1.4 port capable of outputting a maximum of 4K resolution.
That sure is a lot of technical jargon but it suggests that the next Xbox will be future proofed in order to provide developers with ample room to create games before hitting technological ceilings. For reference the Xbox 360 only has 512MB of ram and that console has produced some of the best looking games of the last year. The 360 only started to hit technical limitations after five years or so, the Durango’s specs could rival current mid-range gaming desktops!
