The Wii U will be more powerful than any current-gen console, but that statement alone gives both Microsoft and Sony an upper edge in assuring their new machines are (graphically) more powerful.
According to reports on IGN, the new Xbox “720” scheduled to arrive in October/November 2013 will feature graphics supported by an AMD Radeon 6000 series card (following speculation that it would utilize a Radeon 7000 series GPU). Even so, this is still six times more powerful than the current Xbox 360, and will possibly be 20 percent stronger than the upcoming Nintendo Wii U.
Though there have been numerous announcements regarding its construction, the fabled Xbox 360 successor still has no established price point. From the sounds of it, this next generation will simply be an overhauled version of what we’ve already experienced — two raging powerhouse consoles with most A-list titles, and a few spicy reinventions from Nintendo.
