Being in the midst of some of the most visually progressive titles, it's hard to imagine what exactly can be done graphically to improve upon what we are currently being exposed to. However, with recent news and rumors of Microsoft's upcoming console (tentatively being called Xbox 720) circling around the Internet, we may not have to wait too long to see what exactly we can expect in the next console generation's graphics department. According to sources close to the project, the next Xbox console will have six times the processing power than its predecessor. More specifically, it has been confirmed that mass production of the system's GPU processor - AMD's Radeon HD 6670 - will begin by the end of 2012. With a retail price around $79.99, the 6670 boasts DirectX11 support, multidisplay output, 3D and 1080p HD output.
