Xbox 360 Motherboard Picture?

Filed under
Gaming

Following last week's leak starring the Xbox 360 kid, a French site, xabox.com, has posted what looks like a picture of the Xbox 360 motherboard. If this picture is really a photo of the Xbox 360 innards, it must have been taken from the recently released beta dev kit, which according to rumors includes beta silicon of the Xbox 360 GPU designed by ATI but still have a dual-core version of the PowerPC 970 chip from IBM.

In the picture, two huge fans are covering what might be the Xbox 360 central processing unit (right) and the graphic processing unit (left).

The first picture below is the leaked picture with the following being still frames captured from the OurColony video. You be the judge:

My eyes are bleeding. x_x “ The remark about “eyes bleeding” was obviously a reaction to a perceived lack of aesthetics in the screenshot. And yeah, it pissed me off. I didn’t seek a critique on my icon set or color scheme. I was asking how to fix my friggin’ frappin’ problem. Read more
