    to the original poster, we've seen these exact same fake specs months and months ago. no reason to dredge these up again.


    look for DX10, Vertex and Pixel Shader 4.0~5.0, some of Microsoft's patents implimented in hardware, which will make Xbox2 GPU different from PC R500 coreand a costum (hopefully multi core) CPU from Intel or possibly AMD plus 512 MB memory.

    That speclist follows the formula:

    Take XBOX specs
    Add *2 to everythin, ^2 where appropriate
    Look at marketingpapers where Vertex Shaders are named NURBS, then write NURBS

    Oh, thats it. :)

    These guesstimates are over 1 1/2 years old, and they were based on a 2006 release. They even said they were just guesstimates at that site. Give poor Hank a break, people were just bugging him for the guesstimate so he probably sat down for 20 minutes and cooked that up. Now all xbox fanboys take them as gospel because they are awesome specs (in general, technically they may not work out but 99.99% of the people that see them wouldn't know that) and wouldn't we all like to see a 40x dvd and 1 GB of ram in a console :shock: (not to mention the graphics performance)
