Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rumour: XBox Next/720 silicon production day arrives

MS and AMD has finished preliminary works on Xbox 720 CPU/APU architecture [we still dont know what exactly they are making], and they've sent final designs to be manufactured. If these wafers come out good and without bugs or yield problems, the most important part of Xbox 720 will be ready for mass production in few months. Taping process usualy lasts two months, with one additional month for detailed testing.

This may just be a rumour, but I've been expecting MS to launch their next gen console this year, so I think this could be fairly accurate, or should I say...semi accurate! =D  ....okay.

Anyway a console needs to enter in production at least 6 months before the release... that's give us a release after July.

The corporations generousity is only as good as their marketshare isn't.

PS3 had better deals. Now X1 priced dropped in UK, has constant sales and free game giveaways. PS4....raised prices in Canada. ;)

The more they wait, the harder NA will be for them, so they will try hard to launch this year.

OT: Seems that they fixed the issues they had. Good. Now let's hope that there are no other problems.
