Another supposed leak from Microsoft suggests that an Xbox tablet, called ‘Xbox Surface’, is very much in the works.
A detailed 56-page document claiming to detail the next generation of Xbox (codenamed Xbox 720) was revealed to the world yesterday. This was shortly followed by claims of a new Microsoft tablet with some sort of Xbox functionality.
Now Shifted2U claims to have yet another leaked document, this time detailing a new Xbox tablet device that includes a stationary base station.
If we for one moment suppose this information to be correct, the tablet element includes a seven-inch multi-touch LED screen with a resolution of 1280×720.
The stationary ‘central processing unit’, meanwhile, contains two IBM POWER7 SCMs with six active cores each with 256KB or cache, as well as 16MN of PSRAM and 5GB of DDR3 RAM and a custom 28nm AMD GPU.
Full Direct3D 11 support is also touted. The base unit also houses a 250GB optical disc drive with the option to expand via USB flash memory.
Audio out is expanded over Xbox 360 to include Dolby TrueHD, DTS 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1, as well as LPCM, AAC and 22.2 surround.
Interesting, the document also details support for up to four wireless game controllers.
Does all the information reported in the last 24 hours point to a huge announcement from Microsoft or nothing more than an elaborate (and very well researched) hoax?
