""Both the next generation PlayStation - and its Xbox competitor - feature eight-core CPUs clocked at 1.6GHz according to sources trusted by Digital Foundry. The main processor architecture driving both consoles is said to be derived the new "Jaguar" technology currently in development by Intel's arch-rival, AMD.

Jaguar > ""Advanced Micro Devices last week unveiled the first details about its next-generation Jaguar micro-architecture for low-power and ultra low-power devices. The new architecture promises to enable feature-rich multi-core x86 microprocessors with extremely low consumption of energy, but with improved performance compared to today's x86 micro-architectures. AMD hopes to enter new markets with ULP chips powered by Jaguar.""

Not really anything new since AMD already said they were releasing a consumer version of the same chip sans the Sony proprietary features. Hopefully since they will just be PCs now, especially if the XBOX 720 has a keyboard + mouse input option like they say, it should mark the end of *****ports.
