XDR RAM??? The tri-core 3.2GHz processor seems like an incredible amount of overkill. This thing is meant to do graphics processing first, and everything els second, yet they have given it a middle of the line GPU and a ridiculously cutting-edge CPU. But I must admit 16 bilion pixels per second is pretty amazing. I thought my OC'd 6800GT's 6.25 billion was pretty amazing. I wonder if its possible to steal the graphics processor out of an xbox, or to load windows on one... :o
I would buy an xbox360 just for that then:p But they will make it some special interface so you can't use it on your PC. They are also using water cooling...:naughty:. I hope its good or the warrenty is long incase that thing leaks.
FX-FraggerXBOX 360 will be coming fairly soon and looks to be a MONSTER.... a tri-core CPU at 3.2ghz by IBM, an ATI 500mhz Videocard, 512mb of DDR3 ram at 700hmz!!! a 20GB hdd (removable?)..... this would make a pretty sweet PC, let alone a console. http://hardware.teamxbox.com/articles/xbox/1144/The-Xbox-360-System-Specifications/p1
Tell me this,... How are they going to sell that at a resonable price?
A console has by tradition, been an inexpensive gaming computer. I would be shocked if that cost less than $500 USD, much less the absolute maximum I would pay for any console, at $300.
I'm a Nintendo guy. At worst, I'd switch to a Sony Playstation. I will not be a party to helping Microsoft to eliminate choice, and monoplize the console market.
They will buy about a million of everything and they can drive the prices on the items down by %80 or more.
Damn with specs like that it will be costly console.
that ATI gpu with the 48 pipelines is gonna be sweet
I didn't make it!
they are gonna be taling a loss on each one sold... but my Xmas itss be a lot les than now. Id say by then parts would cost about $1200 if we were to buy them, but since MS gets discounts theyll be shelling out perhaps $750, thus selling for $399 wouldnt be such a BIG loss... taking into account parts get cheaper as time goes by.
I heart Sony, so im gonna crash this thread :p So what? PS3 has a 4GHz processor, with XDR RAM, its gonna be wtfpwnt. im done...
The specs sounds mighty impressive but will there be a mouse and keyboard? Console games just wont be the same as PC till they have M and K as standard, console controls are too fiddly sometimes.
