Xbox 720 to ship with insanely powerful CPU?

Can you imagine the raw power of a costly enterprise server in your next game console? This seems to be the latest rumor on the upcoming Microsoft console (aka, the Xbox 720) from the rumor mill. According to UK-based Xbox World magazine, the console could be equipped with a 16-core IBM PowerPC chip reportedly found in some early development machines.

While a powerful CPU would be a nice boost for enabling more intelligent game engines, it's actually the GPU that takes care of complex graphics rendering such as tessellation and anti-aliasing. Confused? Think lifelike texture and smooth jaggies-free outlines of your game characters for starters.

The same source, which provided the lead, also cited a 2013 launch for the Xbox 720.
