360 GPU *and* CPU Shrink in the Fall

YES!

We know the 65nm version of Xenon, the Xbox 360’s triple-core CPU, had been delayed from Q1 2007 to “mid-2007,” just missing being used in the Xbox 360 Elite, making irony the system’s most prominent feature. But the CPU isn’t the only thing getting shrunk: DigiTimes reports that the Xbox 360 will be equipped with a 65nm Xenos GPU this fall as well, with production of the new graphics chips scheduled for May. For those of you on the fence about the Elite, a newer, cooler, and cheaper (to manufacture) Xbox 360 should be here in the fall. The question: wait or jump in?
