Microsoft has inked an agreement with IBM which will see the software giant license next-generation semiconductor technology for use in future Xbox products and services.
The companies refused to discuss what silicon would be covered by the agreement, saying only that information will be "announced at a later date".
Bernie Meyerson, IBM fellow and chief technologist at Big Blue's Technology Group, indicated that the forthcoming Xbox technologies will be based on the latest in IBM's family of state-of-the-art processors.
"IBM's advanced chip technologies are in demand across a wide range of industries and applications," he said.
