Xbox 360s will have 65nm GPU soon

According to Digitimes and Arstechnica, the much talked about 65nm version of the Xbox 360's "Xenos" GPU will be coming out sometime this fall.

The new GPU will be made on TSMC's 65nm process, due to the new availability of the 65nm eDRAM that goes into the product.

The console's "Xenon" 65nm CPU however, according to Chartered Semi, will be available by mid-2007 and so in theory a version of the console with a 65nm CPU and 90nm GPU could be available in the next few months.

Microsoft will want to begin using the new, smaller chips as soon as possible because the chips run cooler and that will help in redesigning the console's interior for lower costs and higher reliability.

The changes of instituting the new chips will eventually make the 360 cheaper to manufacture and those savings will be passed along to the consumer eventually when the console drops in price.

Basically, wait until the 65nm CPU and GPU are both in the console, as they new units will run cooler, and last longer.

man the this has been a nightmare....but in a year it will so be worth 400 $ :X


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
