Official word from graphics chip makers, AMD sets a high standard for graphical fidelity on Microsoft's next-gen Xbox...
Despite the fact that it's yet to confirm whether it's developing the GPU for the next Xbox, graphics chip manufacturer, AMD has pointed towards the kind of visual detail we can expect from Microsoft's unannounced next-gen console.
According to an OXM US article (via Examiner), AMD says that the NeXtBox will be able to deliver visual detail on a par with the CGI in James Cameron's Avatar, which is certainly a lofty benchmark to aim for but the headline grabbing claims don't end there.
AMD went on to say that the AI and physics capabilities of NeXtBox hardware will be able to give every pedestrian in games like GTA and Saints Row an individual character, mentality, and pool of animations.
Although AMD isn't confirmed as the graphics chip supplier for Microsoft's next-gen console, it does provide the chip-sets for the Xbox 360 so a continued deal is likely. Whether or not that deal has been done already is the real question.
With claims like those above, AMD might simply be performing a Peacock-like display to Microsoft in the hope that the existing deal will be renewed for the NeXtBox. On the other hand, that deal may already be done and AMD might simply be so excited that it wants to shout from the rooftops.
Whatever the case, it's quite a gauntlet that AMD has laid down here and if next-gen visuals don't reach that level of fidelity then we all know who to address our angry e-mails to.
