There aren't many unresolved mysteries with Microsoft's new console by this point -- apart from perhaps why it wasn't named the Stealthbox, like we were suggesting -- but one thing that hasn't been covered in excruciating detail yet is the new 360's splicing of the CPU and GPU into the same chip.

When we first saw its face in a Italian ad, more than one Engadget editor called its bluff: \"The top half doesn't line up with the bottom,\" some said, \"that's got to be Photoshopped.\" While that early image was indeed CG, the form factor was certainly not -- the new Xbox 360 sports enough sleek ang

While our primary gripe with the 360 continues to be drive noise, any improvements to the console that might subdue the impression it's eating our games and heating our continent would certainly be welcome. Microsoft's Jasper 65nm chipset has been in the works for the Xbox 360 for a while, and now

Although word on the street is that Microsoft is planning to release the successor to the Xbox 360 in 2010, the company is still apparently planning on updating the 360 design several more times in the next couple years. Just like the \"Falcon\" motherboard now on shelves updated the original 360 desi
