"Radeon 7790, and 32 MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM memory"
Confused here. Are you saying the gpu has 32mb of memory or the CPU has 32MB of cache and is designed like a 7790?

maybe it has 32mb cache memory for the GPU or maybe the whole system.but why would a GPU need cache memory?

"We designed Xbox One to play an entirely new generation of games—games that are architected to take full advantage of state-of-the-art processors and the infinite power of the cloud,"
So it's basically going to be an always online requirement afterall. Or how else you're going to acces the cloud? Sure, it's not necessary to make games with cloud computations but I bet they claim it is. Like EA with SimCity.
 
So if this thing is the xBox One... then I'm guessing everyone will have to refer to the original xbox as "the original xbox" cause xbox one would be confusing while playstation one makes sense.

The GPU is going to have 32MB of high bandwidth eSRAM cache which can directly acces DDR3-2133 (in dual channel mode) main memory. That will have a ~34GB/s bandwidth. Source: http://semiaccurate.com/2013/05/22/microsoft-subtly-admits-losing-with-xbox-one/

This was no doubt that AMD had co-designed the APU for the xbox one. Good for AMD, scored with the Xbox and the PS4. Hope this is pivotal in turning their fortunes around, Im rooting for them

This is great new's for AMD hopefully this ends up being a major boost financially. That way they can start developing better desktop processors. I know personally I miss the K6's, Barton Cores, and the 939's from there past. All where great processors and keep Intel on there toes.

I WAS a huge XBox fan until the new XBox One was revealed. I am soooo disappointed - DDR3? Seriously? I wouldn't buy a new GPU with DDR3 so, why would I wanted a supposed 'next generation' XBox with DDR3? There's just no excuse not to have DDR5. That's just one complaint of many I have.
I hope XBox fans will unite in rejecting this crap.
Now we know why XBox made no mention of their GPU at the reveal:
Xbox One's GPU not as powerful as PS4's?

PS4 has "50% more raw power" in graphics than Xbox One, says report

Except apparently the 7790 has 896 shaders:

Also, this will be a decent gpu for now, but by this time next year the xbox won't even be in the same league as pcs... Especially if the rumors of AMDs next line up being made on 20nm and with double the shaders of the current gen prove true.

people still compare console parts to pc parts? i guess things will never change... you'd figure people would learn that console parts are heavily optimized for gaming, yet they expect lower than mediocre performance

A good example of outsmarting the competition. Intel may have a lead at the performance CPU segment, but they could never compete in an integrated APU solution. Nicely played by AMD securing both consoles.
