AMD may have snatched next Xbox deal

Could the Xbox 360's successor feature a Radeon-derived graphics chip? Quite possibly, judging from a Fudzilla report that quotes "industry sources" as saying Microsoft has picked AMD to develop its next-gen console GPU.

The existing Xbox 360 already has AMD (or, rather, ATI) graphics inside: Xenos, a custom GPU design with Shader Model 3.0 support and an auxiliary chip that speeds up antialiasing. According to an old Beyond3D article, Microsoft orders Xenos chips from foundries directly, so the original deal may have involved an intellectual property license.

Fudzilla doesn't say much about the type of GPU Microsoft will include in its next console, although it does note that the third-gen Xbox won't arrive until 2012. Based on that schedule, the site speculates that the future graphics chip could be based on 28-nm process technology.

Aside from Microsoft, the pre-merger ATI also partnered up with Nintendo to provide the graphics technology inside the Wii. However, the Wii's Hollywood GPU is quite a bit slower and presumably based on older technology than Xenos, as well.

I just have to say that I prefer NVidia graphics before Ati, since the launch of the 8000 series with DX10 support. But from a processor perspective I agree since the best processor on the market today is a AMD Phenom X4 AM2+ 6000+, a japanese fellow manage to overclock it to run at 4*9Ghz, and still stable.

28-nm chips = low cost console.

I've used both Ati and Nvidia graphics cards and I think they are equal. I switch back and forth between PC builds to get the best bang for my buck but other than that I've had very positive experiences with both.

Microsoft will have ALL CONTROL over their chip so they dont have issues like they did with the Xbox's Nvidia GPU.

ATI has far superior designs, and shaders. Plus they're first to get to DX11. Also, ATI cards are much more affordable, and not overpriced for their performance, unlike Nvidia cards.

Very true. Nvidia even adopted ATI's unified shader tech.

Yep. Ati gives you the best bang for your buck.
