Xbox gets 512MB of memory

Photos of a new Jasper mainboard for the Xbox Arcade gaming console equipped with a 4-gigabit Samsung NAND flash memory module have been leaked on an enthusiast forum recently. The model in question seems to have been manufactured in Japan on April 9th, and uses the same Jasper platform debuted last year, albeit with twice as much onboard storage. The original Xbox Arcade Jasper mainboard used a 2-gigabit NAND flash module that gave users about 213MB of usable internal memory, with 16MB dedicated to kernel, keyvault, Dash and other operating-system related data.

The new flash storage should give Xbox Arcade users about 496MB of space, which should leave more room for content using the New Xbox Experience (NXE) released this past fall and serves as storage space for small Xbox Live Arcade games. Jasper itself partly affords the room by using a more efficient graphics processor core that frees room and reduces heat build-up within the casing itself. [via XboxScene]
