A recent post on the A9VG forums has led many to believe that what you see above is the new "Valhalla" motherboard for the Xbox 360 console. Underneath that fan heatsink is supposedly a CPU/GPU combo chip that will allow for the overall size reduction of the board.
I hope this happens. It might even address the dreaded RROD issue.
Motherboard Design Engineer sounds like a cool job. I wonder what they expect to be rewarded.
Best bet is to release a smaller, cheaper, better looking variant with the same internal hardware.
Well, given that if you have the same parts, they wont be smaller, or cheaper, thats not going to happen is it.
If the speculation is correct, it just means MS is doing what Sony did with the playstation. Same functionality, smaller cheaper box to do it on.
it will be interesting to see how they integrate the hdd in, because you would want to be able to be able to use all the old periphals? especially the HDD.
Unless it's more powerful I don't care.
That's a stupid idea. Yay, lets develop 360 games twice!
When you develop for the Xbox360, your given a development box to test your code on that has less resources (ram) than the retail Xbox360. I was told this by a friend of mine who develops for this platform that unless you can get 30fps MS wont allow it to be be published.
This being the case, you shouldn't be able to notice any difference.

Oh god, there goes the thread.
I can't check the amount of RAM on mine, as I only have a test kit. I'm pretty sure the dev kits have double the RAM of a retail unit.
Oh, right you are Midda. Thats right.
Oh Hoggy, play the game man.
lol id rather a Xbox "Silent" or Xbox "Ninja"
Unless it's more powerful I don't care.fragmenting a console community would be a terrible idea
You think they give a s***? SALES!
