We've been hearing so much about the Xbox One this week, but now we have confirmation from AMD that they are the ones that helped Microsoft design the "semi-custom single-chip" APU that powers the next-gen Xbox One.




The Xbox One features an APU that includes an 8-core processor, GPU and 8GB of RAM on the single-chip. The GPU on the Xbox One is still shrouded in mystery, and is definitely a strange move by Microsoft considering how open Sony are about the specifications on the PlayStation 4.
