IGN is reporting from sources close to the Microsoft project, that the next version of the Xbox will be derived from AMD 6000 series GPU's, a 2011 released GPU, not a newer AMD 7000 series.  It will be a GPU similar to that of the Radeon HD 6670, with DirectX11, 1080p, multi-display output and 3D.  Mass production of the GPU is supposed to occur in late 2012, followed by the console launch in October or November of 2013.

Such specs give the next Xbox, six times the processing power of the Xbox 360 and performance of around 20 percent greater than the forthcoming Nintendo Wii U.  The Wii U is supposed to have the R770, a chip that should be stronger than that of the 360 and PS3.

Other rumors derived from uncovered Microsoft resumes indicate the new Xbox will have gesture and voice input, possibly a type of integrated Kinect.

Either way, a next generation Xbox has been long over due, this is good news and a hint of what is to come.
