Found this topic on another 3dfx board, and I decided to make one here.Why? Hell if I know. But anyways.Note-All American money.Don't know Uks, or any other money solutions.

Image Insert:



- 3 PowerPC CPUs sharing 1MB of L2 and each one has 32KB L1 and 32KB instruction cache.
- ATI R520 based custom GPU
- 40GB HDD
- 256MB RAM, memory cards (64-1024MB)
- 802.11b/g wi-fi connection
- DVD-ROM Drive
- HDTV support up to 1280i (1280x720 @60fps)

I don't beleive this.
How can this photo be out already if Microsoft promised to show the console plans off on May 12?I've seen this photo for about 3 weeks now, and I'm having a hard time to beleive this is the real deal.

1.40gb Hdd?They won't be able to do that.That would be to much money.Microsoft will try to play off the price of Xbox 360 same price as Xbox.With this added on, that's about $50-$60.

2.802.11b/g wi-fi connection-Microsoft will do this in either 2 ways.
1.They will have you buy the adapter.
2.They won't do it at all.They will just leave it wired right now.That will add on more money. for the Xbox 360.About $50.

3.3 PowerPC CPUs sharing 1MB of L2 and each one has 32KB L1 and 32KB instruction cache.-Hell no.
The value of a Power PC CPU is right now here in America(Which no point in buying a single PPCCPU if you cant use it for anything much)Is right now $300.If the power PCs are gonna be low in main processor speed, atleast 1ghr, then that's gonna be about $100-$150, and that won't work.Besides, the Xbox 360's custom CPU is most likely going to be a Cell processor like the PS3.Or, 3 Power pc cores most likely.

4.May 12th, 2005-God forbid.
They will tell their plans and start building one about a month or two.

Lets add it all up.

Xbox 360-$300.
40gb Hdd-$50.
802.11b/g wi-fi connection-$50
3 PowerPC CPUs-$150 Each,450.
Thats $850 in US.
Price is to high, won't happen.

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
1 gb ddr
Western Digital 80 gig
ATI Radeon x800
