Rumor: Xbox Durango will require an always-on net connection, will have Blu-ray
New details about Microsoft’s new Xbox have surfaced.
Xbox Durango will have two GPUs, four-to-six CPU cores and a Blu-ray drive, sources to close VG247 confirmed today.
The dual-GPUs will work differently than it does on the PC. Instead of rendering the same object by turn, the cores will be able to render different objects simultaneously.
Among the new bout of information, the most worrisome is the need for an always-on Internet connection. Apparently, this is implemented to curb piracy.
Sources have also said that the next generation of Kinect will be built into the device as standard.
