X360 65nm CPU in Fall

The Xbox 360 should get its long-awaited upgrade to a 65 nanometer process in the fall, according to China's Commercial Times. A test version of the game systems's Xenon graphics chipset, which is seeing a shrink from 90 nm, has reportedly been sampled and should start production this coming month through the well-known firm Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, or TSMC.

If confirmed, the change should support an anticipated move for the three-core main processor and solve the heat and noise problems that have plagued the Xbox 360 since its launch in November 2005. The rival PlayStation 3 from Sony is currently built on a similar 90nm process for its Cell CPU but is generally said to be less demanding than its Microsoft-made counterpart.
