Xbox 720 has 8 x64 cores running at 1.6 GHz

Microsoft logoWe already know quite a bit about Sony's recently announced PlayStation 4. However, official details about Microsoft's Xbox 720 (Next) are few and far between.

The latest report via VGLeaks? The next-gen Xbox processor is comprised of two modules - each containing a quartet of x64 cores running a single thread at 1.6 GHz.

"With Durango Xbox 720, a familiar instruction set architecture and high performance silicon mean developers can focus effort on content and features, not micro-optimization," the publication explained.

"The trend towards more parallel power continues in this hardware; so, an effective strategy for multi-core computing is more important than ever."

Additional specs? Well, according to previous reports, the 720 will be equipped with a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics platform, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 50GB Blu-ray drive and s500GB HDD.

It should be noted that it remains unclear if the Blu-ray drive fitted in the latest Xbox will be capable of playing movies right off the bat. In previous versions of the Xbox, Microsoft required users to purchase accessories to play movies using their console, so future iterations of the system could simply be blocked by default. Then again, our money says Blu-ray movie playback will be supported right out of the box.
