California-based semiconductor firm Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has reportedly secured a deal to create the graphics processor for Microsoft’s next Xbox.

Tech site Fudzilla claims that the platform holder was happy with the Xbox 360's ATI-built Xenos GPU and keen to partner with the firm again for its next console. AMD merged with ATI Technologies in 2006 in a $5.4 billion deal.

The site also suggests that Microsoft initially intended to “refresh” the Xbox platform in 2010, but has now pushed the plan back to 2012. ATI’s new GPU will reportedly allow for Xbox 360 software backwards compatibility.

This would be good for AMD, they could use the business right now for sure.

Interesting... on second thoughts maybe I'd just hold off rebuying a 360 full stop and wait for this if I sold my Elite :lol: I can always catch up on the handful of non PS3 releases once a Nexbox came out.
