Xbox 720 processor production tipped @ Slashgear

Published: | Posted By:

Here is some interesting news about the Xbox 720.

This tip comes from the folks at SemiAccurate, a blog whose name playfully dismisses the fact that they’re not always right with their own tips. The information they’ve got keeps with the possibility that the Xbox 720 will be revealed this year by noting chip production (processors, that is) as officially “taped out” for the console’s innards.

When they (and we) say “taped out”, it refers the final design being completed and sent off to production for a bit of electronics, especially in regards to circuits. Here this refers to the so-called “Oban chip” that will be powering the Xbox 720 when it’s released either late 2013 or early 2014.

Of course, take this info with your daily grain of salt since it is likely to change,  I mean just look at what happened with the Intel Roadmap leak. happy smile
