"Insider" confirms rumored specs. (we discussed them in the PS4 thread) Other insider confirms this indirectly by heralding sending MS info about this leak.

Source : http://club.tgfcer.com/thread-6596213-2-1.html

Preface:

User "BD" was a former UBI (now other 3rd party) employee and says that he will leak infos about the 720's dedicated OS Ram, if MS will not spill the beans itself on E3.
Other users confirm his affiliation to the industry. This was done in course of a thread about the CVG 720 article we all know.


Now user " 战神blog", an alleged other insider, pretty much leaks the current (devkit?) specs:

Eight-core cpu, 8g memory, 8xxx graphics, windows 8 kernel specially os, 640g hard drive.

and later as an answer on the question whether an 8800 or 8900 series GPU is used:

Is 8880.

(the 8880 seems to be a typo - I think he means 8800)

now "BD" comes back into the play and indirectly confirms this specs:

You're gone, I said you divulge sensitive information sent letters to the MS PR tomorrow.

Disclaimer : everything was translated via google translate.

Someone here speaking chinese and can confirm that I didn't misunderstand anything here?

Edit: it's AMD's 8800 series that is mentioned here. No idea whether 8850 or 8870. Most probably custom silicon in the final unit.

In line with the lastest rumors, 8 core at 1.6 and a 8850 GPU, 8gb of ram.

So far so good.

Aside from a massive harddrive those specs were exactly what I was expecting. Let's hope the PS4 can keep up.

lol 8800 graphics? That's pretty awful. I mean I had a 8800GTX and it was a good card for when I bought it (years ago). But it would never be able to run games at a high level.

Also is that BD guy telling the leaker that he's reporting him to MS?

As in AMD HD8800, their latest GPU. Not Nvidia 8800.

So is this specs related to the dev kit? Or should anyone really expect 8gb of RAM in the retail unit?

This "half of the RAM" is a legacy from the past. 1gb over 512mb is logical, bit a big hit with 8gb to 4gb is not logical anymore.

I'd honestly buy the XB3 if the specs stand. Argh... I really don't want to pay for Live though. Hopefully, as more entertainment boxes enter the console space with free online and host of functionality, perhaps MS will either reduce the price of XBL or make it free.... please let it be the latter.

Could still be 6gb. You don't have to double the ram.

Wow. N-threading is going to hit in a big way going forward. Lots of slower cores VS a few really fast ones.

Isn't PS4 rumored to be more in line with a PC processor? Like a straight up quad core AMD?

No one knows. We only have the OEM specs which seem to be just rebranded 7xxx cards.

88XX series is not out yer so no idea. But i think a 7970 is still more powerfull, but not super much.

But i think the xbox3 will have a custom Chip, the 8800 is just the GPU in the dev kit until the custom GPU is done. Was it not the same with the xbox 360?

Probably around 3-4gb RAM available to games while the other 2gb are reserved for the OS and all those ads and retailer-exclusive achievements.

Next Xbox will have a custom chip between 7000 and 8000 series

I think $499 is realistic. Maybe they got $599.99 if Sony doesn't launch this year and they are the only kid on the block with a new console. Don't think that's a great idea though.

This reads like a fanboy's dream. 8GB + 8-Core + 640GB HDD? Good luck.

$10* says these specs are for devkit and devkit only. I don't see MS being so generous.

Imaginary dollars. God, I hope the specs are true!

If any of this is true, I wonder how a 8800 (or for that matter, whatever it was before the rebrand) would fare in a closed system. It certainly sounds like more than just an incremental upgrade.
