Both the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 are expected to be released this year, but Microsoft may not be done with just one console. A possible leak may have given us details on the rumored second Xbox console in the works.
Possible Xbox Leak
As we noted last week, a second next-generation Xbox, one that will reportedly be cheaper than the Xbox Series X, has been rumored for some time. However, we haven’t received any confirmation of the second console. But, a Redditer a couple of days ago may have leaked some interesting info that may confirm this second Xbox console.
According to the user, an AMD APU has been reportedly tested, and it’s one that could be developed in order to power the cheaper Xbox model. The APU reportedly includes a 4.0 GHz octa-core processor, and it appears to be paired with 16GB shared between RAM and VRAM.
On the reported APU, WinFuture believes that the unnamed AMD APU could deliver a graphics performance somewhere between 7.0 and 7.9 teraflops. This would be a significant increase from the rumored 4.0 teraflops that the cheaper Xbox model was reportedly set to have.
Here’s some more details on the leak, courtesy of Reddit:
