Xbox360 Halo 3 Edition is running the new 65nm chips? September 30, 2007

A few proud owners of the new Halo 3 edition Xbox360s have eagerly posted in the official Xbox forums that these new batches shipped from lot #734 is the new 65nm chipped boards.

If you are one of the owners of the new Halo 3 edition Xbox360s, you could peek inside the Xbox360 from the bottom grille with a flashlight to see the new heatsinked chips. Click here (and scroll down) to view pics of the new 65nm and older 90nm heatsinks, the biggest difference is the lack of a heatpipe in between the 90nm heatsink.

Is this the eagerly awaited 65nm chipped Xbox360? Will this be the end of the dreaded 3 red rings of death? Will it now last more than one year, which is usually the time of death for the old 90nm chipped units? Only time will tell.
