Xbox 360 to get CPU upgrade in 2007

Microsoft and Chartered Semiconductor, the manufacture of the Xbox 360’s CPU, released a joint announcement declaring that the console’s processor will receive an upgrade in 2007. The new chip’s design will use a 65nm manufacturing process instead of 90nm, which will provide a smaller heat output because less power will be used. Although the new CPU isn’t expected to have any performance increases because there would be too many compatibility issues, this will hopefully solve many overheating issues. After the 360’s launch many gamers were distraught when they saw their red ring of light appear, but luckily their cries aren’t going unheard.
