Default Xbox 360 Scaling Chip

I remember a thread talking about scaling between the PS3 and XB360. I saw this article on Ars Technica that shows a pic of the Xbox 360's magic bullet (IMHO). It's an interesting read and talks about comparisons between the two systems.

http://arstechnica.com/articles/headstart.ars/1

I'm of the belief that the fact that the 360 can scale the image to whatever resolution is needed w/o taking power away from the GPU/CPU is an important feature. The way the PS3 locks games to a specific resolution is absurd and short sighted on the part of Sony.

Really good article. Thanks for sharing. The Sony Bravia is a great looking tv. I have seen a few links on the AVS forum that talks about some problems with them though. I will keep my eye on that before I purchase on this upcoming summer.

Yeah, thanks for the linky.

Interesting read even if MS were coy about the details.
