Rumor squashed: The Xbox One does not have a second 'secret GPU' Over the past week, one rumor has remained consistent in the Xbox world: that the Xbox One had a second 'secret GPU.'
Microsoft's director of product planning Albert Penello has categorically squashed the rumor, via Twitter and Reddit.

"I thought I had already said something about that. There is no 2nd GPU, there is no stacked GPU," Penello said. "I didn't think [the second GPU rumor] was festering because I thought I'd already commented on it. For some reason the DX12 announce seemed to make it resurface."

The executive was then asked how the new DirectX 12 (DX12) would impact the Xbox One, but he admitted that he was not yet fully versed on the upcoming graphics API. "I know we're continually improving our tools for developers, as we did with Xbox 360, so you'll see consistent performance improvements over time."

Oh man I thought the dudebro gamer at Game Stop made this one up himself when I was there the other day. Apparently it is one of those desperate rumors made up that stupid people fall for. This dudebro gamer was using this to try and convince a customer to not get the PS4 because it is not even powerful enough to run Titanfall and that games will get better on the XBOX One because Microsoft has a second GPU that will be unlocked in the near future.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to incite any kind of argument, but that was hilariously funny.

And in a related story, it's confirmed that the Xbox One can't perform oral sex on you. Sony has yet to officially confirm this is so for the PS4, but there are indications it likely has the same limitation.

See that was supposed to be an attachment for the Oculus Rift but now that Facebook bought it I think that technology will be replaced with Candy Crush VR Edition

If the rift takes off, you can be f**king sure there will be *special accessories* sold in 18+ stores. Remember...VHS and BluRay hit sex shops before they hit video rental stores.
