The Xbox One Revealed: Specs, Controller And Release Date Inside
The next-gen Xbox console is now a reality with the Xbox One. The specifications have finally been released and we now have some clarity of how all the specifications will work as an integrated solution in the Xbox One.
The Xbox One will include: an 8-core CPU, 8GB of system memory, a 500GB hard drive. The console uses a single system-on-a-chip (SoC). The will be comprised of a 40 nanometer process that combines the GPU, CPU, memory, and other components into one single chip.

For interests sake, the Xbox 360 was powered by an IBM PowerPC tri-core processor, running at 3.2 GHz and an ATI Xenos GPU running at 500 MHz. The two chips were built using a 90 nanometer process
Other specifications included in the console will be:
802.11n wireless with Wi-Fi Direct
Microsoft’s Marc Whitten and Wired had this to say about the Xbox One:
“Variable power” states ensure a “practically silent” operation. The console is engineered to last “well into the future.”
“A new 500-GB hard drive was designed in-house, likewise a custom-built Blu-ray-capable optical drive. A single 40-nanometer chip contains both the CPU and GPU rather than the two dedicated 90-nm chips needed in the 360,” Wired reports.
“In fact, a custom SOC (system on a chip) module made by AMD contains the CPU/GPU chip, the memory, the controller logic, the DRAM, and the audio processors, and connects directly to the heat sink via a phase-change interface material.”
The new Xbox One will be released later this year.
