65nm GPU Xbox 360 gets stripped

Written by test

Comes with 256MB of flash memory

It looks like the long awaited Jasper version of the Xbox 360 console has finally arrived with its hopefully much cooler running 65nm GPU. The first consoles have already been opened and all the details bared for our viewing pleasure.

The two consoles that have been dissected are Arcade versions and it seems like Microsoft has gone an upped the flash memory which houses the Xbox OS and UI from the previous paltry 16MB, to a whopping 256MB. The reason why? Xbox NXE of course, as this will allow everyone, including Arcade owners to use NXE without having to buy additional storage.

The new consoles ship with a 150W power brick, down from the previous 175W for the Falcon models. As if the new GPU and extra flash memory wasn't enough, it also seems like Microsoft has gone and changed the south bridge to a new model, although it's not clear what, if any hardware changes have been made.
