Great to see a official Xbox magazine not taking the immature way out and post titles like,"New xbox is way more powerfull than the next Playstation," that is just asking for a big flame war :roll: . I can't wait to see the offical specs when they full released instead of all these supposedly leaked stats.

Let's all agree to not give a flying **** about the numbers till we're shown direct, unanswerable evidence that they make for better games.

Something tells me this'll be rather expensive. Then I look at the Watch Dogs, Star Wars 1313 and the new Unreal Engine demonstrations and decide it's probably worth it. Probably.

I'm not getting excited about a new console until I'm sure that this next gen won't be a massive Kinect-fest. It's horrible and unwanted. At least that's my opinion. I hate this motion control fad nearly as much as I hate this 3D fad. Please just let me play my games the old fashioned way.

For anyone wondering, 1.23 teraflops means 1.23 trillion floating point operations per second. It's a measure of processor performance. I'm thinking it refers to the GPU rather than the CPU as a Core i7 3770K only does 130 gigaflops and I can't see a console CPU being almost 10 times better. The Nvidia GTX 680, the top single GPU on the market, does 2.5 teraflops.

Thanks mbs. Can I ponder then as to how it would be 'somewhat' behind ps4 specs. Specs being speculations of course. Because surely 1.23 Terryflaps is colossal, and that's behind the competitors? Anyway. I suggest march reveals may hold answers, that's only 6 weeks away. Either that or E3 and it's many months.

If this is indeed true, And not just a load of crap we have all heard before, I for one wont be getting one , I will spend all the money i expected to spend on a GPU for my PC Instead, According to this news the next Xbox wont be a quarter as powerful as AMDs next big card, On its own!, What a let down,This will be the end of the Console if its true

Lo de la RAM me lo creo la próxima generación debería tener como mínimo esta capacidad. De hecho pienso que debería tener 16G en RAM o si le ponen las 8G que le adicionen un puerto para ampliarla a futuro... Lo de el Blu Ray cualquiera lo deduciría pero si se quiere dar un paso realmente grande es mejor ponerle un reproductor de HVD (holographic versatile disc) o tecnología similar para que se le pueda implementar la resolución 4K Nativa(4096 × 3112) a mi modo de ver el HD Ready del pasado y la 8K Nativa(7680×4320) el FullHD del pasado. Y no quedarse corto con el espacio en los discos y así evitar la incomodidad de sacar juegos en 3 o 4 discos incluso mas… Con respecto al procesador lo único que conozco de esa capacidad o por lo menos se acerca es un INTEL de un 1TeraFlop de 50 núcleos, no se la referencia ni el nombre de este procesador pero hay información de que existe el problema seria el costo a menos de que Microsoft haga un convenio con Intel para que les den un precio preferencial y así no inflar demasiado el costo final de la Next Gen XBOX…

Encontré un poco de informacion sobre el procesador de 1TeraFlop No se si esta info es oficial pero parece real.................................................................................¿Recuerdan la noticia de Intel haber desarrollado un chip con 80 núcleos, hace 4 años?, pues he aquí por fin la primera aplicación comercial de lo que en ese entonces era un simple proyecto de investigación en los laboratorios de Intel.

La empresa reveló esta semana el primer procesador capaz de ejecutar instrucciones a un ritmo sostenido de 1 TeraFLOP (1 TFLOP), gracias a la ayuda de 50 núcleos trabajando en paralelo. Al chip lo llaman el "Knights Corner".

Para que entiendan el significado de esto, primero notemos que 1 TeraFLOP significa que este chip puede ejecutar en tan solo un segundo la asombrosa cantidad de 1 millón de millones de instrucciones.

Si ponemos esto en contexto, y como expliqué hace un par de años, obtener 1 TeraFLOP de poder en apenas el año 1984 requeriría de una inversión de US$15 Mil Millones de dólares. Pero fue apenas en el 1997 cuando por fin se pudo construir una supercomputadora con ese poder, y era tan grande que ocupada 72 grandes gabinetes.

Este nuevo chip ofrece el mismo poder, en la palma de la mano, y a un precio asequible a prácticamente cualquier persona de clase media.

Según Intel, esto permitirá que esta misma década, hacia el 2018, se cree la primera super-computadora capaz de 1 ExaFLOP de potencia. Para que tengan una idea, 1024 TeraFLOPS producen 1 PetaFLOP, y 1024 PetaFLOPS producen 1 ExaFLOP, o más de 10,000,000,000,000,000 cálculos por segundo.

En otras palabras, nos acercamos rápidamente a un escenario con máquinas que tendrán el poder computacional bruto del cerebro humano.

A console isn't a PC, factor in OS and stuff and a 5gb ram is still 10x the amount 360 has. Not sure about the flops. There's no need to overreact, saying that I bought myself a pc the other day. That's beside the point though.

A lot of tech info in there Cesar, but you unfortunately failed to notice that we're all speaking English here. :lol:

Anyway, we all love a good rumour, but the sooner we get something a bit more real the better.

I know its not a PC, But it will be running Windows 8, And also just because its a console doesn't mean by magic that it will be able to streamline games to require 75% less power then PC, Epic’s Tim Sweeney claims that the new Unreal 4 Engine requires 2.5 Tflops of power , So we wont be seeing Unreal engine 4 games end of story, , So if thats the case ill be moving back to PC Or Steambox

Ha, love this. People will compare the numbers to what they know, and what they think they know about said numbers, and come to the conclusion the new consoles will be unable to play anything more complex than Angry Birds... :roll:

If Microsoft went and built a prototype now and put in all of the bestest and most amazingest components available in the world today and then released it what would happen? Oh yeah, new stuff would be out in a year that would make the new £1500 Xbox seem a little out of date and expensive, no?

Do people seriously and really expect the specs of a cutting edge PC for < £300 -400? :|

The other things to bear in mind are the specs of the 360 and what the optimised game engines can do with that, and how in fact the new engines will crank as much juice out of the new config. To add more power is easy, to use it properly is another thing... >insert spiderman quote that has only minute relevance<

No i expect Microsoft to make a loss on every console they sell for the first two years, Also i couldn't spend £1500 on a PC Without being stupid, Even if i spent £700 it would ruin this machine, Someone needs to wake up we arent in 2005 anymore, If they expect this console to last five years plus, Forget it because it wont last two,

There is no reason why they couldn't sell the console for £500-£600 An iPhone costs more these days something that lasts a geek a year let alone ten.
