Word is out from unofficial sources that the Xbox 720 is set to release somewhere
around 2011-2012. Inside sources from Microsoft have said that the engineers are predicting the kind of processors that will be available in 2011-2012 to incorporate and design the system around it.
It has also been reported that Intel is getting its game on by offering deals to Microsoft in order to drive AMD out of the game. Intel is said to be offering to make everything from processors to chipsets. This is yet to be confirmed.
I would be vary of buying any consoles early 2011 after this gets out!
