Microsoft XBOX - Essential Specs

A modified 733-megahertz (MHz) Intel Pentium III processor with a maximum bus transfer rate of 6.4 gigabytes (GB) per second. The Xbox will possess the fastest processing speeds for a game console to date. For consumer products comparison, the PlayStation 2 has a 300-MHz processor and a maximum bus transfer rate of 3.2 GB. GameCube will have a 405-MHz processor and a 3.2 GB maximum bus transfer rate.

A custom 300-MHz 3-D graphics processor from Nvidia that can process more than 1 trillion operations per second. It will produce 150 million polygons per second (100 million sustained). Polygons are the building blocks of 3-D graphic images. Increasing the number polygons results in sharper, more detailed images. The graphics processor will also support high resolutions of up to 1920 X 1080 pixels. For comparison, the PlayStation 2 has a 150-MHz graphics processor and produces 70 million polygons a second. The GameCube has a 202.5-MHz graphics processor and will produce 12 million polygons a second.

A custom 3-D audio processor that will support 256 audio channels and Dolby AC3 encoding.

An 8-GB built-in hard drive -- an industry first. Having a built-in hard drive will allow the games to move faster.

64 MB of unified memory, which game developers can allocate to the central processing unit and graphics processing unit (GPU) as needed. This arguably makes the Xbox more flexible for game designers.

A media communications processor (MCP), also from Nvidia, that will enable broadband connectivity. In addition, it will have a 10/100-Mbps (megabits per second) Ethernet built in that will allow you to use your cable modem or DSL to play games online.
