The next Xbox will use another in-order processor just like the previous xbox's because in-order processors are CHEAP.

The price will go down, also isn't the current Xbox 360 processor a custom one? If that is the case and Microsoft wants to use Xeon again then they will no doubt make changes to the schematics.

I thought Xbox 360 is using PowerPc chip, are they planning to switch? probably using emulation for backward compatiblity for 360 games..

Dude you act like they won't use the same method that they used for 360.:)

you have to remember that MS will go with AMD again(hopefully cinema 2.0) so they might use a 6-Core Processor.;-)

I plan on getting my server this year and I was thinking, do I get great server or mega pc with latest chip inside.

what to buy ...

dual socket mobo for two octocores... hardware that could make toystory (in realtime) in the home.

i can only imagine what that would be like to have. 16cores...
