XBOX 360 Specs fully leaked!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, true, good point.  But that still doesn't explain the overkill of 9.6 GHz.  That's just nuts.  Actually, I believe the XBox is 733 MHz.  If that's the case, that makes the XBox 360 13 times more powerful than the original.  You have to admit that that seems a little excessive.

That's not how it works. You're comparing an older x86 architecture to a brand-new Power-base chip. And multiple cores or CPUs are not additive. ie three 3.2Ghz cores don't equal one 9.6Ghz CPU.

If developers (and the XNA tools) can take advantage of that parallelism, then yes, it's a ridiculous amount of processing power.

But that's the idea. The game console industry is huge these days. And pouring money and new technology into products is something Microsoft is very good at.

I have a question, because it will be able to play dvd's, does that mean we can install pc games  :unsure: ?

I suppose it could be made to install pc games, cos it does have a hardrive.

"- Strem media from Windows XP (S)(O) ", that means is somewhat compatible with windows no?, but how in a ppc architecture? oO

This is what "backwards compatibility" means. And, no, I don't think anyone knows for certain yet, but I would take an educated guess and say "yes."

This could simply mean that when you hook it up to your network via your network port on the XBox 360, you can stream Windows Media files from your PC to the XBox 360. I'm not sure what else it could mean.

Custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU

- 3 symmetrical cores at 3.2 GHz each

- 2 hardware threads per core <-- whats this? some kind of hyper threading?

These have to be fake. AMD just came out with its dual core chip! Dont think a 3 core chip is ready yet.

actually thats wrong.. it should be 2 instructions per core.. Normal CPU can perform 4-6 instructions at once but this CPU will be able to do 2.. its because it will reserve power and for console you dont need that many instruction since you are only playing a game.. I read on Anandtech that CELL processor is also going to have 2 instruction at once.

^lol rickie wins

oh. That was Xero. I'm guessing a mod removed it because it was totally unnesessary.

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but are the three CPUs simply for...well, for lack of a better word...redundancy? Or are they actually always going to be utilized, i.e. 9.6 GHz? I haven't heard a clear answer either way, and I understand if this isn't known yet.

If these are real, I wonder how much it will cost?
