65nm Jasper-based XBOX 360 consoles ship

Jasper X360 console ships

Microsoft is reportedly shipping the Jasper-based XBOX 360 consoles, Jasper being a 65nm-process chip that the company hopes will reduce hardware failures indicated by the so-called "red ring of death." Microsoft went through a tough time in recent years with the XBOX 360, having to replace a vast amount of consoles due to an overheating issue likely related to the former 90nm-process chips. The recalls ended up costing Microsoft over $1 billion.

The launch was revealed by the XBOX 360 DVD Drive Database, a site which compiles component information from users' consoles to guide potential buyers. Official details on the launch were not readily available.
