The latest iteration of the Xbox 360 hardware has been stripped down and detailed quite extensively at this point. However, there has not been much information about the device’s new combined CPU and GPU system-on-chip architecture. Today, Microsoft has finally shed some light on the new technology as shown in the image above.
The new 45nm system-on-chip is codenamed Vejle and operates with less than 50 percent of the die space and 40 percent of the power of the Xbox 360 first introduced in 2005. The new technology utilizes a mere 372 million transistors, and has an FSB Replacement sector to induce lag in order to ensure the new Vejle chip doesn’t run faster than older Xbox 360’s.
