Xenon is its Codename (pointed out here). XBox Next is a stupid nickname people made up months ago
Yeah - it was. But Microsoft had realised that after only a few weeks - so they're not going to do it again are they. This time - they know what they're doing and they won't release at anything more than Sony is releasing at. If they can - it will be less than. Sony need more money than

Below are suggested specs from various sources, rumours, and press releases. When new news appears this will be updated, and of course when official specs are released by Microsoft this site will be updated accordingly.

Now, a bit of clarification is necessary here. We have two sets of specs to talk about. Supposedly Nintendo has two sets of benchmark specifications they're working with, and one will be chosen when they are closer to actual development. We'll talk about both in the analysis.
2.7 Ghz PowerPC G5 Processor
512 Megs total Ram (128 for video, 64 for sound)
600 Mhz graphics chip
Dual 1.8 Ghz IBM G5 PowerPC processors
256 Megs DDR Main memory (64 dedicated to sound, using a 7.1 sound system at 196 Khz)
128 Megs GDDR3 Video memory
500 Mhz graphics chip (ATI developed, 16 Pixel Pipe, 220 Million transistors)
Built in 15 Gigabyte harddrive
Blue-laser disk technology
Potential DVD playback
Case design philosophy more like the N64, less like the GameCube
