65nm Xbox 360 chips may curb heat problems

A version of the Xbox 360 that uses 65-nanometre (nm) chips is rumoured to be in production and a 45nm model could follow, according to reports from a Singapore chip maker.

Smaller versions of the Xbox processor would cost less to produce but would also give out less heat, possibly solving the $1bn warranty problems the unit recently had.

How does this stuff keep getting approved?! This story has been posted numerous times already; in fact, it failed approval once about 3 hours ago for being a duplicate - yet people are still approving? Go check the "failed approval submissions" and it's staring you right in the face!

***The same story posted at a different site does NOT mean that it's a new story people - it's still a duplicate!***

I swear, you have to wade through 15 tons of crap on this site nowadays before you find any articles that are actually news.

How muck longer do i have to wait to get the 65nm.

It may already be available. The only way to tell is when someone opens a new 360 and actually sees the chip. Plus, they need to post what version the 360 is so when you go to a store to get one all you need to do is read the label on the console through the window on the box.

now this makes me wonder should I wait even longer for an 45n?

I mean, it's only 18 months away... and Lair *might* be out by then.

Seriously though, once the 65n is in place, do you think there will be a public statement or will it be done real quiet like?

Yes I wish they would give us some sort of official date. When 360 will get the new chips.
