To put it simply, Microsoft’s next addition to the Xbox line, if it lives up to the rumors, could shape up to be quite a monster. New purported leaks from gaming website VGLeaks claim to have the full system overview of the alleged Xbox 720. On Monday, the website laid out a diagram demonstrating how its various components interact, revealing the following specifications.
The Xbox 720, according to the specs, might come packed with a whopping eight-core CPU clocking in at 1.6GHz. This essentially means that the device will come with some impressive multitasking capabilities, allowing players to zip through hefty gaming titles.

We’re not sure how much truth there is behind this, but VG247 reports that Microsoft’s offering may only clock in at 1.23 teraflops.
However, in terms of storage space, the Xbox 720 could still smoke Sony’s PS4. Lining up with previous rumors about the console, the alleged system overview says that it will come with 8GB of RAM, marking twice the amount of storage space that the PS4 is expected to come with.
Players may expect to see a significant enhancement when it comes to the image quality of Microsoft’s gaming machine as well, considering the Xbox 720 could include an 800MHz graphics card. This is a sizeable upgrade from the current Xbox, which only boasts a graphics card of 500MHz.
