Last night Microsoft unveiled it's new Xbox 360 console, it's a total weapon. Gamespot reckons that the powerful multicore CPU won't be matched on PC's for a couple of years! AMD and Intel have just launched dual core chips which can run two threads, the IBM designed chip powering the 360 has three cores and can run six threads. The 360's GPU is impressive, but will be outclassed by PC technology rather sooner than it's CPU. Sony and Nintendo are also powering their new consoles with multi core chips, Sony is calling them cell processors. It looks like the next round in the console wars is going to be very interesting indeed.
