Xbox 360 Could Get 32nm Chips By Late 2009

IBM made a major announcement today that they will be offering 32nm chips to their partners in the second half of 2009. This would mean that, yes, the Xbox 360 could get even smaller chips than the 65nm "Falcon" CPUs..or the rumored 45nm upgrade. We're talking power savings of 45% and speed boosts of 30% over IBM's last generation of's flat-out better technology that will reduce the propensity of overheating drastically, and maybe even make way for a smaller console.

32nm for the cell as well.

Although the next xbox will closing in on its release around that time i can see MS doing what sony did with ps2, releasing a slimmed down version.

Still, its hard to imagine a slim xbox that omits very little heat lol

Eclipticus3940d ago

yeah i can see this release a slim360, and not worry about Backward compat with the third xbox.
