    Llamma.com have opened a new elite and taken a look inside, a few surprising alterations.

    I think all 360's will be moving to the new cores when MS have got production up and got rid of all the old stock.

    I dont think its specific to the Elite but more the evolution of the 360 as a product to a cheaper/better component which envitably happens to all consoles.

    The elites is just hitting at the right time, a while back MS said they would be moving the 360 to 65nm at the beginning of this year.

    Good to know its finally happening though, and tbh this is more of a reason to buy an Elite than the "upgrades" MS is trying o sell us.

    I have no idea what that means but if they have to take it appart and look inside to see if it has it (and even then they dont know) then what the hell difference does it make if it has it or not????????

    My take is this, appart from a very few early consoles which are now gone the 360 works perfectly fine. The new one MUST be exactly the same spec and play exactly the samer games in exactly the same way so who cares whats inside?? Just play games on it and be done :thumbsup:

    65nm = Less Power Consumption = Less Heat = Quieter and more reliable.

    Quieter being the one most people are excited about id imagine.

    Its also cheaper so in theory makes the likelyhood of a price drop greater but the way MS are going i doubt it.
