AMD, the chip designer, has developed a cheaper, smaller and cooler 20nm version of the main processor in the Xbox One. That opens up the possibility of a slim Xbox One in the near future. This is according to a report on Eurogamer.The processor inside the Xbox One is one of the most expensive parts of the console. Each one costs Microsoft around $50. While it is not known how much cheaper the smaller processor will cost, it will help reduce the heat and could increase the power of the processor by 30 percent. However, in the past console makers have not increased the power of a console.The smaller processor will create less heat, which means a smaller cooling assembly will be required to prevent the console from overheating. That could lead to a smaller console. That would lead to less packaging and more cost savings in shipping the consoles.
