The rumored Xbox 720 has been anticipated for a long time. The latest news from a hacker Marcan42 in this Twitter leaked that the next Microsoft game console code-named Durango (Xbox 720) might only come with a 1.6GHz CPU. The new twit by Marcan42 is about his reply to readers’ questions on his previous twit, which leaked that the Wii U only features 1.2GHz processor and 549MHz graphic chipset.
Marcan42 wrote in his twit, "If you want more evidence that MHz isn't everything, a little birdie points out that Durango (Xbox 720) is specc'ed to have a 1.6GHz CPU.
Food for thought. (And don't bother asking me who that little birdie is.)"
Microsoft has not offered any detailed hardware specs about the next Xbox, thus Marcan42’s information still needs to be confirmed. According to analysis, the existing Xbox 360 adopts 3.2GHz processor with 3 dual-thread physical cores. If Marcan42’s news proved to be true, the next Xbox is greatly to come with more physical cores to provide players with more powerful performance.
