Website reports to have uncovered the full specs of Microsoft’s next console.

Microsoft’s next home console, codenamed Durango, may have been leaked online by VGleaks.

Following yesterday's report on Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles, this new unofficial leak offers up a detailed view of the Xbox 720's inner workings.

According to the website, the console will have 8 CPU cores from AMD running at 1.6 GHz, with up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, which is in agreement with yesterday’s leak from CES.

In addition to this, the console will benefit from 32 MB of embedded SRAM, operating at 102 GB/s, and a 50 GB 6x Blu-Ray disc drive.

Internet bugs and multiplayer addicts will be pleased to hear the console comes with gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct.

Not content with unveiling Microsoft’s next gaming machine, the site claims it will do the same treatment to the PlayStation 4.

For the technically-minded, the full leaked Durango specs from VGleaks follow:


  •  x64 Architecture
  •  8 CPU cores running at 1.6 gigahertz (GHz)
  •  Each CPU thread has its own 32 KB L1 instruction cache and 32 KB L1 data cache
  •  Each module of four CPU cores has a 2 MB L2 cache resulting in a total of 4 MB of L2 cache
  •  Each core has one fully independent hardware thread with no shared execution resources
  •  Each hardware thread can issue two instructions per clock


  •  Custom D3D11.1 class 800-MHz graphics processor
  •  12 shader cores providing a total of 768 threads
  •  Each thread can perform one scalar multiplication and addition operation (MADD) per clock cycle
  •  At peak performance, the GPU can effectively issue 1.2 trillion floating-point operations per second
  •  High-fidelity Natural User Interface (NUI) sensor is always present

Storage and Memory:

  •  8 gigabyte (GB) of RAM DDR3 (68 GB/s)
  •  32 MB of fast embedded SRAM (ESRAM) (102 GB/s)
  •  From the GPU’s perspective the bandwidths of system memory and ESRAM are parallel providing combined peak bandwidth of 170 GB/sec.
  •  Hard drive is always present
  •  50 GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive


  •  Gigabit Ethernet
  •  Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct

Hardware Accelerators:

  •  Move engines
  •  Image, video, and audio codecs
  •  Kinect multichannel echo cancellation (MEC) hardware
  •  Cryptography engines for encryption and decryption, and hashing
