I just realized another possibility with the hidden specs is that it could be covering up other information not related to game performance. For instance, maybe the console supports SACD playback? Built in Slacker Radio? etc.
Just felt like throwing that out there.
You may be on to something. Okay, I took a look at 3 different versions of my Xbox 360s. No information on the system related to specs, not a peep. So the top of the Xbox One on the right hand side has an entire vent for the fan exhaust. The left half has presumably plastic covering the internals of the XBO. So low and behold Microsoft put a box in the upper left of the left side of the system that contains system specs? What sense does that make. However, if you think about Kimeran's point, it could be advertising of specs, such as "amd" "slacker" "dGPU" "Netflix"??? Not throwing this out there for argument, but more possibilities. I am thinking that the upper left hand corner won't have something like this:
•Custom Jaguar x86-64 cores at 1.75 GHZ, two clusters of 4 cores
•68 GB/sec peak bandwidth to off-chip 8GB DDR3 memory.
•204 GB/s peak bandwidth to 32MB of on-die storage.
•47MB of cache
•8G DDR3 and 8G FLASH
•264GB/s total memory bandwidth
•500 GB HARD DRIVE
but something more consume electronics focus such as symbols:
A word about the dGPU. Once you get past the fanboy comments on both sides, this last minute announcement of a dGPU seems unlikely at first. However, a few of the points made almost give some credibility to it. However, maybe it is legit, but not as jaw dropping as is alleged??? Maybe instead of Titan power, it is a more reserved dGPU tacked on. Tech people are saying if true it can't be but so powerful due to heat, even with that fan sitting on top blowing straight up through a massive vent. However, something that makes this neck and neck with PS4 in power, maybe passing it slightly.
Who knows. Sept 29th here we come
PS: Maybe that sticker is covering up a super secret upgrade slot similar to N64 :P Okay, now I am getting way out on a limb...
