I saw the guy talking about the lighting, what stood out to me was this part of the article:

"With that said, AMD has already mentioned that the next gen Xbox could produce Avatar-like graphics and the co-founder of Geomerics has followed in AMD's footsteps claiming that lighting capabilities could hit that benchmark as well."

The Geomerics guy could be right. AMD is talking bullshit though.

I should certainly hope we will what with the amount of time it's been since 360's release. It's been seven years. How's that for making you feel old? Seven years of chesthighwalls!

The fact it's lasted 7 years is part of the reason why I doubt we'll get a big boost. Developers for the most part don't want a lot more power, just enough to overcome some current handicaps (low ram, etc). Development costs are high enough already that a single failed game can collapse a company. And we're at the threshold where a lot more power isn't going to translate to as big an improvement in visuals as we've seen in the past.
