Report: The Next Xbox Can Render Avatar Graphics
Brian Ashcraft — No, it won’t be wall-to-wall digital blue people. Well, I hope it won’t, because, man, I did not like Avatar.
However, AMD, the tech company responsible for Xbox 360 graphics tech, said the next Xbox will be able to render graphical detail on par with James Cameron’s sci-fi opus.
AMD won’t confirm it’s working on the new Xbox, but, according to the Official Xbox Magazine, AMD said the new Xbox will launch with that level of graphics.
What’s more, AMD’s Neal Robison added that the upcoming A.I. will enable every pedestrian in, say,Grand Theft Auto have their own personality and react to situations differently.
This sounds like AMD talking up whatever they’re working on. Fingers crossed it actually pans out, because words like these can come back to haunt you.
Kotaku is following up with Microsoft and will update this post should the company comment.
I’ve got to call BS on this one. Real time rendering of Avatar graphics with enough horsepower
to give everyone in GTA a personality? Don’t think so.. not at the price point Microsoft is going to
need to be at.
Of course.. Sony said the same thing.. and it was true.. if you watched it as a movie.
