RUMOR: Xbox 360 GPU to Shrink This Fall

April 30, 2007

DigiTimes is reporting that the GPU in the Xbox 360 will shrink to a 65nm chip sometime this fall. The report is coming from sources at equipment makers and is being cited by a Chinese-language [i]Commercial Times[/i] report.

The report goes on to say that an engineering version has already been sent out and production on the 65nm chips is slated to begin as early as May.

Could these 65nm chips be what Microsoft needs to finally quell all the heat issues in the 360 consoles?
