Rumor: Xbox One Getting New Polaris-Based GPU

There is mounting evidence that the Xbox One is getting a substantial refresh. Do you think we are actually getting a more powerful console, or just a more efficient one?

Microsoft and AMD have been secretly working together to make a more powerful GPU for the Xbox One, and since the GPU is embedded in one chip, it means Xbox One will get a new APU. One can wonder what architecture the CPU part of the APU will be based on (Zen perhaps? ) , but some console users have noticed the name "Xbox One Polaris" flashed during Netflix usage with their Xbox One.
