Smaller Xbox One Processor in Production

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.

cool.  i guess ps4 might get smaller CPU in the near future too.  Possibly like xbox one, it might be 20 nm processor in the very near future.

Didn't take them too long to do that lol. Usually its a couple years before talks of slim models surface. This isn't really anything new. Sony made a smaller cell processor when they made the slim ps3. If I remember right they went from a 90nm process to a 60nm. Or something like that.

yeah.  i remember ps3 was first in 90nm, then down to 65 nm.  when they get down to 45 nm for the cpu, that is when sony make the slim version for ps3.
