Rumor: Xbox 720 beta kit contains two APUs

The current Xbox 720 beta kit contains two APUs, according to a new leak.

TGFC member called BD, who is supposed to be an ex-Ubisoft employee, and who also leaked the Xbox 720 specs earlier which contained an Eight-core CPU and 8 GB RAM, has posted that the latest beta kit for the Xbox 720 has two APUs or dual APUs.

Now this is quite an incredible engineering feat if it is true. This was posted on April 1, however, BD has also posted that the Xbox 720 controllers were covered in irregular black tape stripes, almost camouflage like.

Kotaku had posted their rumour on April 2 and mentioned the same thing about the controller having stripes. So it seems BD’s post was legitimate.

“Last Friday project received the first batch of Durango, Beta Kit, Host oversized white box, new handle,” he wrote (translated from Chinese). “And host and handle are plastered with the irregular black tape stripes, and the new car before the release of camouflage-like. The most important thing is, Beta Kit actually there are two APU.”

Microsoft should be officially revealing their next Xbox sometime later this year. It was originally supposed to be revealed in April, but was delayed by a month.

It is interesting to note that the PS4 has only one APU, so if the final Xbox 720 architecture contains two APUs, it just changes the whole dynamics of next gen competition.

Is two apu's that good though? I mean lets say the other rumors are true and it has 8gb of the slower ddr3 ram...would having two apu's really be good? If the ram is that much slower than Gddr5 like un the ps 4... it sounds counterproductive almost... but i don't know much about that type of stuff...ill wait for one of the PC Gaming non master racers to comment...

Not necessarily. If anyone can figure out how to do it with consoles and keep it affordable and competitive at this point its MS. And it wouldn't push the costs up at all. I DO however think that they will get that money back elsewhere(Charging a bit more for Live, or more microtransactions blah blah blah)

To answer your earlier question...Dual APUs would be fu*king insane....System would be capable of rendering/doing so much sh*t all at one time it'd literally be flying. sh*t would be that Lamborghini pulling up in the car lot making all those n*ggas driving hondas feel bad

Can't wait until the unveil...I also love how now everyone has changed their moods about rumors...2 months ago yall n*ggas were celebrating rumors...now everyone shoots them down

Is having two i7 Ivy Bridge (Intel's "APU" if you will) chips in your computer good? A member of the PC peasant race would tell, yes. These type of setups are typically reserved for servers (and CPUs like the Xeon) though.

But use the rest of my question also... I know two apu's is good...but if something has slow ram (if rumors are true) wouldnt tgat be counterproductive? Like just because you have two feet doesnt mean you can run...

It also won't improve your grammar, so you may as well stay away from it.
