so does that mean the brick plug will also be getting smaller.
Didn't this already happen once, or is the change that was announced a long time ago and just now happening? Or are they shrinking it down even further?
dunno, this is the first time i heard about it.
Maybe, but it's only the power consumption of one component that's been reduced, the GPU is a heavy consumer also. That is not to mention powerbrick has to power the rest of the mainboard, the DVD-ROM drive, the optional HDD, and any other peripheral you plug in.
To be honest, I hadn't really noticed how loud my 360 is; my PC is normally on at the same time, and I don't play games quietly (my 360 is hooked up to a very powerful surround sound amp)
It gets louder over time. Mine used to be silent, now it sounds like a plane taking off.
Lmao , just now they going to exchange it? omg
So, when will these be on the market? Is there a more general date than 07?
And how will we tell these new models from the older models?
I plan on picking up a 360 this coming year and would like one that does not suck that much power.
I was debating whether to get a Wii or 360 first but I suppose I'll wait until late spring until I get a 360 now just in case.
I'm glad I'm holding off till Halo 3 to buy one. By then all the bugs will be worked out and games like Gears, Dead Rising, and Oblivion will be cheaper.
Word. I may now just pick one up late next year. That way they'll have these out and any bugs fixed by then hopefully.
I think you mis understand. Nothing is being "Exchanged" The processor inside the 360 will soon benefit from better more advanced fabrication all processor architextures benefit from such things eventuly. Moving over too the new proccess
A)Makes the Cpu smaller
B)Allows the Cpu to use less power
C)Allows the Cpu to produce less heat
Less heat equals slower/less noisy fans.
