    It's been less than a week since the last time supposed technical specifications for the next-generation of consoles hit the web, so it's high time for some more speculation surrounding the possible features and other technical bells and whistles you could find inside the box when Durango, Xbox 720 or whatever finally launches later in the year. That's assuming that the speculation thus far is all true, of course.

    The latest rumoured specs have the next Xbox sporting a dedicated Kinect port, an integrated 'Natural User Interface', an eight-core 1.6GHz AMD CPU, a 50GB 6x Blu-ray disc drive, a 500GB HDD and a whole lot more besides, according to a document obtained by VGLeaks that alleges to have the full tech specs for the next-gen Xbox AKA Durango.

    You can check out the full list of specs and a 'system block diagram' showing how all the technical gubbins apparently fit together below. Remember, this is all rumoured stuff however, and none of it's confirmed.


    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
