AMD promises Avatar-like graphics on Xbox 720

Written by

Pandora coming to a TV near you

AMD is telling the world+dog that Microsoft’s next generation console will pack speedy graphics capable of delivering movie-like quality.

AMD exec Neal Robinson says the new Xbox 720 will feature graphics on a par with James Cameron’s blockbuster Avatar, all powered by AMD.

However, Robinson did not directly confirm that the next generation console was in the works, although he talked about next generation hardware that could bring realism to a whole new level.

For example, the extra power could allow massive improvements in A.I. any physics, so every pedestrian you shoot at in GTA will react differently, making a news worthy killing spree a bit more challenging.

And the world is made of sugar.


Anyway, it will probably use Graphics Core Next, which should be a huge improvement.

I don't expect to see much news on the next gen consoles on Fudzilla, since it was confirmed that Nvidia didn't win a single console contract.

If MS is designing a New Xbox right now at best we are going to get a 5xxx or 6xxx card level.So no, "movie quality" graphics are unlikely, but dx11 graphics is going to be awesome. Also GPU power really doesn't have a say in A.I. Thats CPU and memory power.

Last I checked every darn thing in Dwarf Fortress reacts differently. So consoles need to catch up to PC before they can catch up to server farms making CGI movies.

Quoting redunion1940:

Update - It looks like the new Xbox will be powered by an AMD Trinity Bulldozer/hybrid CPU/GPU, based on 28nm Tech (Like I said lol)

Not true, Microsoft will want the new Xbox to be as future proof as possible, just like when the original Xbox launched in 2005 its hardware was the latest.

Xbox 720, will have a GPU based on 28nm and 7000 series technology, better power use and possibly graphics core next, the CPU might be a 6 core 8 core hybrid or a very high clocked quad. Either way new Xbox will be a beast! :-D

I highly doubt that. How high will the price be then? 700-800$? They will use DX11 hardware, that's for sure, but doubt it will have such high specs.

It will be a massive improvement on what consoles look today but its not going to be even close to Avatar.

Avatar took incredibly powerful computers an incredibly long time to render. In the short time that has passed since then its not going to suddenly scale to $500 games consoles.

Every new GPU release PR companies go into overdrive and the phrase 'Cinema quality' gets thrown around.

"AMD promises Avatar-like graphics on Xbox 720"

I hope not. Avatars CGI was shit.

avatar level graphics are very very easy todo. google "project offset". If you can find some of the early movies, they where done on hardware little better then the xbox 360 (from memory they where using an x1800), later on they did update alot of stuff before intel bought out and shutdown the project.

this first part should show you what i mean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkoi6WCCJHY&feature=player_detailpage#t=119s

poorAMDfags is so pathetic. They are thinking that their crap can do the same as Nvidia Quadro do?
