Hey all, I was just surfing the tech news and came across the anticipated specs for the new XBOX360. Among the items included was the processor. I know most people already know what it is, a IBM 3.2 GHz PowerPC with 3 dual-threaded processor cores. Now it seems to me that this is quite the kick ass processor and it raises a few questions for me that maybe some people here could answer... 1) I had thought that the newest processor available to Apple was the new dual core ones (the 930FX or something like that?) So is MS getting preferred treatment because of volume? 2) This seems like a killer processor, much better than anything intel has right now...otherwise MS would have gone with Intel for the XBOX right? 3) Is this IBM-MS deal the reason why Apple broke things off in favor of Intel? To get back at IBM for sleeping with MS? I dont know...but it seems that this new XBOX unit is pretty damn powerful (though not as much as the PS3). And with all the components together for about $399.99 (RAM, HD, Video Card...) they must be getting a killer price per unit. (I know, i know....gaming systems are sold as cheap as possible to make money of games and accessories...but still) Final note, the new Intel dual-core Xeons announced today are expected to cost $1000 each in bulk pricing. Comments? Thoughts?
