Microsoft is reported to be working on the Xbox Surface, a 7-inch gaming tablet powered by an ARM processor.
According to the Verge, the device will incorporate high-bandwidth RAM as well as the custom-made processor, designed specifically for gaming performance and will run a custom Windows kernel.
Specs leaked earlier this year hint that the tablet will work in conjunction with a stationary base unit that will incorporate dual 6-core CPU’s, implying that the tablet device will work as a controller or addition to a new Xbox console.
For now though, Microsoft is remaining very tight lipped about the device.
