New rumors suggest that the next generation Xbox 360 will be six times more powerful than the current generation. Two reports surfaced earlier that point to not only the specific GPU that the console will use, but a sensible release window for the unannounced hardware.

IGN claims that the next generation console is due out in either November or October of 2013. When it does launch, the publication is saying that it will be using a GPU similar to the Radeon HD 6670. These specs would put the next generation console at around six times the graphical power of the current generation. It would also put the next Xbox around 20% greater performance than Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U.

It’s hard to tell if these rumors are true at this point, as Microsoft hasn’t announed anything at this point. They aren’t likely to do so either. Perhaps E3 could ultimately hold the answers.
