Rumour : New Leaked 360 Board Hints at 360 Slim

1 min read


Leaked images have surfaced showing off what’s purported to be the new motherboard for the Xbox 360. The most interesting thing about it, other than its reduced size is that the the GPU and CPU have been reduced to a single chip, with active cooling instead of just a heatsink and heat pipe.

This doesn’t seem to be just a revised version of the board either – it’s more of a complete redesign, and hints at the possibility of a 360 Slim on the way.

As these are leaked images – and the source is of Chinese origin which automatically raises flags of suspicion – we have no way of verifying their veracity – but it makes sense that 360 would be looking to produce a newer, sleeker, more cost effective 360 to launch alongside – and bundled with – upcoming motion control Project Natal.

I’m not too sure they can reduce the size of the 360 too much though, as it would have to maintain compatibility with existing accessories like the disproportionately priced hard drive.

One thing we can ALL hope for is that the slimming down of the 360 leads to a slimming down of its disastrous and infamous failure rate.

    If they release one that’s as quiet as the PS3 Slim, I’d get one. I have no issue with size or failure rate, I just cannot STAND the noise my X360 makes.

      I’m sorry what? You don’t have an issue with the failure rate? Are you incredibly rich? Are you Bobby Kotick? I just don’t understand this disgusting attitude. The 360 clearly has serious hardware flaws, and yet folks will throw their money at it. It just baffles my mind. If it can be demonstrated that the xbox slim will deal with the failure rate, then I MIGHT just consider giving the 360 (or its future successor) another chance.

    I have a felling there won’t be a price drop but instead just have the Natal bundle come for free…

    AMD are only releasing these fusion chips next year.

    There was a job advertised for an engineer that can redesign the xbox 360 motherboard.

    Oh and they wouldn’t waste their time with a third-party cooler leave alone leaving the sticker on :tongue:

    Why would they not be able to redesign to a slim based on the hard drive, the hard drive can always be on top of the console

      As I said, they won’t be able to make it THAT much smaller because the HDD is almost the width of the console, and takes up a good 3/4’s of its depth.

      Smaller yes, but not a heck of a lot smaller. they probably wouldn’t want to anyway, to offset any potential heat issues.

      Speaking of the HDD, I dont see a plugin for it anywhere now that i think about it

        oh wait i take it back, i see two sata inputs at the uper left edge of the board

    well im going out on a limb and saying its real, i said the PS3 slim was fake and i was amazed when it was true, so this is gotta be true too then

    rumour has been debunked not happening, with this rumour,please stop copy pasting articles an do 1% research and get rumours that are not total bs.

    im not even gonna bother posting a link, because yes i know evr1 wants a slim fbcause the XBawks is so crappy and im not denying theres a cance however this rumour is complete FUD


    • LazySAGamer

      Link please… personally I think the slim thing is a PlayStation thing and I see no reason for Microsoft to try and copy it.

      No one really cares what size a console is

        I guess that’s what he’s talking about. But i’m not sure.

        A slimmer console ignites sales and also reduces the cost of production (in the long term). If you plan on having a ’10 year product’ it’s something that will have to happen.

      Its a rumour for a reason :getlost: – it’s easy to come in here 8 hours after the post went up and pretend like you knew it all along

      March 18, 2010 at 06:49

      Spelling is there for a reason. With this post please try to use a spell checker if you are unable to do so yourself.

      I’m not even gonna bother posting a link to one because I doubt you will be able to understand it.

    guess we’ll have to wait and see at E3, I know i kept on refusing to believe there would be a PS3 slim, heck even the footage looked fake, then ….. BAM! now almost everyone wants a PS3 slim

    If you compare the graphics design on the 360 and PS3 slim boxes then you would notice that the 360 is standing up and already gives the buyer a slimmer impression unlike the PS3 slim lying down flat like a snackwich maker :sick:

    Don’t you guys see all the extra headers and jumper pins on the motherboard? This is a computer motherboard, not an xbox motherboard. Sorry guys and gals.

    The new xbox motherboard, nicknamed “Valhalla” was scheduled to be released late last year sooooo yeah, ANYTIME NOW MICROSOFT!!!!!

      ‘A computer motherboard’… You really think so?

      Where would you put the RAM?
      Why is there a IC labeled “Microsoft Xbox 360”?
