Next XBOX Processor Enters Production

We may see the XBOX 720 at this years E3 after all. The processor is code named “OBAN” and it will be based on 32nm fabrication process. Ten thousand of these new processors will be manufactured for Microsoft’s developer kits.

The CPU is based off of IBM while the on-die GPU will most likely be an based off of AMD’s latest architecture Southern Islands/Graphics Core Next (GCN). These chips will reach developers sometime in March. Hopefully, this will give developers a chance to make a few demos or at the very least allow Microsoft to give their own technical demonstration in order to show off their new system.
