Posted February 11, 2013 by LarryC in News

It seems that the Microsoft  Xbox 720 (Durango)  specs have been leaked by the website VGleaks. Below are the specs of the system that they released the information for.


  • x64 Architecture
  •  8 CPU cores running at 1.6 gigahertz (GHz)
  •  each CPU thread has its own 32 KB L1 instruction cache and 32 KB L1 data cache
  •  each module of four CPU cores has a 2 MB L2 cache resulting in a total of 4 MB of L2 cache
  •  each core has one fully independent hardware thread with no shared execution resources
  •  each hardware thread can issue two instructions per clock


  •  custom D3D11.1 class 800-MHz graphics processor
  •  12 shader cores providing a total of 768 threads
  •  each thread can perform one scalar multiplication and addition operation (MADD) per clock cycle
  •  at peak performance, the GPU can effectively issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per second
  •  High-fidelity Natural User Interface (NUI) sensor is always present

Storage and Memory:

Does this release make players more excited about the next gen Xbox console? Even though early leaked information can lead to strong expectations about the system it is still just the specs of the project model. So will these Specs change? Like everything it will be a wait and see.

A press Conference is rumoured to take place this march for the two systems Xbox and PS4. Will we see a showing at CES or E3 this year? Only time will tell.
