A video of tearing down the Xbox 360 Elite.
Playshrhhation shree and the shree sixsry. Anyone else noticed? :P
it sounds like they haven't addressed many of the issues that have dogged the system.
everyone knows they haven't addressed sh*t about the Issue, thats why there Bringing out the Falcon's, yes i guess there pulling a SONY and making us wait but just for a little bit there suppose to be out last month but i guess there in Production right now but haven't yet been released to the Public i don't think?? i know there releasing them before Christmas, i think September
This site never fails
Can anyone even begin to imaging how hard getting the 360 you want will be?
You: Yes, I would like to buy a 360 Premium.
Store: Alright, here you go.
You: I would like one with 65nm processor and HDMI please.
Store: We have no idea of knowing whats in that white box, it could a mix of anything. 65 w hdmi, 90 with hdmi, 90 without hdmi, 65 w hdmi.
LOL, ITS GOING TO BE SO CONFUSING. It would be better to just be oblivious to the fact you have no idea which system is coming in the box you buy.
Actually it's easy to get HDMI. Just look at the side of the box for the HDMI equipt listing.
In all fairness the HDMI enabled Premiums are labelled as such on the box.
And if rumours are true, the 65nm units are already heading to the channels, so it won't be too long before 65nm becomes the standard.
However, only the CPU is moving to 65nm, the GPU will remain at 90nm for the foreseeable future - and while the smaller die CPU will help the power/heat issues, it's the GPU where most of the RROD problems stem from.
I would have thought any new Elite or Premium should have the extra heatsink for the GPU - certainly MS inferred they were re-engineering old stock, but I guess it's no surprise that the 'fixed' units have not hit retail yet - I would imagine the channels are pretty stuffed by MS (makes the shipped unit figures look much better to keep the channel chock full of stock - even if it's just sat in warehouses).
I guess it'll be a little while before we get 65nm CPU and GPU, with quieter drives and no RROD issues!! (I'm on my third 360)!
its really hard to tell when your ordering online because they dont specify it anywhere, and online is where all the good deals are. Like the 300$ 360 Premium that went on sale today at office depot. What would I be getting?
Well, DUH !! Yeah, if you buy it online there is no telling what you'll get ! My buddy & I went to Circuit City on Labor Day 2 get him a 360, He got an HDMI equipt 360, 10% off Labor Day special & an extra controller for FREE ! He paid $314.99 for a HDMI Premium with an extra controller ! Maybe you should get out of the house more...
It wasn't "SO CONFUSING" for us !
MS why do you treat your xbots so badly
atleast they put in a extra loud drive so you know when its working
OMG your jus Hilarious i dont kno what n4g would do without you
its like a spaceship!
his voice is soo cool. i could go to sleep listening to this.
His Mono voice, an video needs to go else where. Pointless Preview! It makes me wanna stop writing about this dumb article. As a matter of fact.......................... .....................
Jees that guy is ripping the case apart with such a force, does he want the case to be f*cked up or so?
BTW the story goes, Elites made after 17 juli 2007 have 65 nm GPU/CPU
they didn't state the manufactured date, listed on the back???
This aint fair, I bought my XBOX 360 on launch date, had two RRoD and now I am on my third console....but I am sick and tired of MS "improving" the 360 in a way that rewards people that waited, and the hardcore gamers are left out with the option of getting a new one or keeping the (third for me) 360 premium!!! People that bought on launch date should be able to trade this in specially after suffering RRoD!!!!
i really didnt learn anything... why not tell what you think should be in replace of whats there... or why the stuff there is good?
them rip it open around christmas because thats when i start looking at buying one. I want to KNOW it has that 65 chip
I like how he said it had some of the same parts as the orginal xbox. Very informative!
ok back to Warhawk
in terms of hardware, ps3's heatsink looks much better. the 360's looks smaller than normal pc heatsink that come with the cpu.

that's a messy looking motherboard. PS3's looks a lot cleaner and more organized.
