Xbox 720 to use AMD technology, graphics to look like Avatar
The AMD executive said in an interview, Microsoft is pulling the trigger on it’s next gaming console with AMD fully onboard inside. But not so fast, this isn’t because AMD offers superior technology when it comes to graphic hardware. The ATI developed technology that powers the current Xbox hardware is now owned by AMD, and so, Microsoft has chosen to go with the next generation of that tech, and thus landed AMD the gig.
The exec spilled a few more beans as well, saying the graphics will be on par of that from the Avatar movie; interesting! He also said the hardware is a lot closer to production that we might think. this is great news, perhaps we could see a 2012 release, we’ll have to wait and see as more news develops.
