Default After Falcon comes Jasper

Just some info from Dean Takahashi's blog. Not really smackdown worthy. Dean just put up a post about the NEXT 360 motherboard code name... Jasper. Scheduled to hit the market next August, the new mobo shrinks the ATI graphics chip down to 60nm to match the IBM CPU. It also will include smaller RAM chips and one would think, a redesigned heatsink solution. Dean has written two books about the Xbox and first broke the story about the Falcon mobos way back last year. So he's got some contacts close to the Microsoft hardware team. It's interesting that that is all MS has planned for future mobo designs, but I guess all that matters is that the consoles will be even cheaper for them to make. More info can be found on his blog post: http://blogs.mercurynews.com/aei/200...es_jasper.html

At least Microsoft is revising the hardware to add features (HDMI) and decrease power usage to reduce the cost of the console.

Sony reduces the cost of the console by removing features. (2 USB ports, Media Card reader, PS2 compatibility.

I'm betting the bundles that come out at the end of the month that include Forza and Marvel:UA, the Falcons will be out in full force. There's no reason to wait for Jaspers, otherwise you'll never get a 360 because console makers are constantly revising the hardware (and features) to reduce cost.
