According to Wii/PS3 hacker marcan.
According to a source of Wii/PS3 hacker marcan, the next-gen XBOX CPU is going to have a 1.6GHz CPU. However, he didn't specify any more details.
In reference to the questions about his reveal on Wii U's CPU Clock Speed (@ 1.25GHz), marcan tweeted that a source told him the Next-Gen XBOX console (codenamed 'Durango') will have a processor clocked at 1.6GHz...
No more details were shared. Of course, he meant to say that, even if CPUs have low clock speeds, it won't matter a lot without considering other stuff like its cores, architecture, cache, etc.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.)
Now, this also could get in line with some past rumors saying 'Durango' could feature from 8 to 16 cores (makes sense if those are clocked at low speeds). OR, could this be related to the recently rumored 'XBOX TV' set-top box?
Anyway, those are just rumors and there's nothing confirmed yet. So, take this with a grain of salt!
