‘Avatar quality graphics’ in next Xbox — AMD

The visuals of Microsoft’s next Xbox console will rival those seen in James Cameron’s 2009 flick Avatar, manufacturer AMD has said. And just like that, the next-gen hype train enters full gear.

Talking in the latest issue of OXM, director of ISV relationships, Neal Robison, said gamers have a lot to be excited about. Naturally.

AMD hasn’t confirmed that they’re working with Microsoft on the new system, though the company did supply the graphics chip for the 360.

The AI and physics capabilities are said to have been upped as well. An example given included every pedestrian in open-world games like GTA or Saints Row having their own mindset. No more clones on the streets, should developers go through the trouble of creating individual mentalities.
