We all love the rumours that arise when a new console is on the horizon, this is one of them. According to an AMD executive, the Xbox 360’s successor should be able to display Avatar quality visuals. Yeah, you know, James Cameron’s Avatar.
Xbox 360’s Xenos GPU is made by AMD, and they are supposedly making the GPU for the new Xbox as well. Director of ISV relationships at AMD, Neal Robison, stated that, not only will the graphics output be phenomenal, but improvements to the AI and physics will be more impressive.
He mentioned that AI and physics capabilities of the next-gen hardware will allow for every pedestrian in a game such as Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row to have a totally individual mentality and be more responsive to the situations arising around them. We suggest you take this news with a pinch of salt, but hey, anything is possible.
