New Xbox 360 Interface

So it seems like Microsoft is planning to further their efforts to become a part of everyone's home theater system. The release of the widely known Xbox 360 update has been scheduled for Q4 2007. The new Xbox 360 will be home to a new set of hardware upgrades that please even the pickiest of media advocates. These upgrades, including a higher capacity hard drive, more efficient processor, and high def digital output, set the strong basis for the IPTV interface that will be released with this upgrade. This all in the effort for Microsoft to increase fan base and create the dream system for home entertainment. The early adopters of the next gen Xbox seem to be left in the dust when it comes to this upgrade seeing as no plausible solution has been introduced as to an upgrade option for them, aside from buying a completely new system. So while early adopters are kicking themselves in the ass, people wanting to buy a 360 will be waiting several months in order to get the newer, better, even more entertaining system.


Screwed because you bought an early system? Can't wait to get a new one? Tell us what you think on the forums...

Rofl, use RivaTuners temp monitor, it logs temps in a graph for you no matter what youre doing so you can check what they peaked at after youve finished playing ;)

haha :)

I remember getting the old Sparkle S3 Virge cards years ago, cheapest ones out.
The idea of having a thermal monitor on the card is cool, altho it might be a better idea to make a drive bay mountable one for people who don't have or want a window on the side of their case? :) altho maybe that could be an idea for a mod already.

What card is that? says DX10, but it actually looks a decent size as it is not massive :confused: :)

SPARKLE's entry level DirectX 10 graphic card is based on NVIDIA advanced G86 GPU architecture. They will be on sale around the globe synchronously when NVIDIA officially announces G84 and G86 graphic chips.



One of them.

It looks like the LCD unplugs, so it wouldn't be hard to run some wires to a bay.
