|Xenon Hardware Overview|
By Pete Isensee, Development Lead, Xbox Advanced Technology Group
This documentation is an early release of the final documentation, which may be changed substantially prior to final commercial release, and is confidential and proprietary information of MS Corporation. It is disclosed pursuant to a nondisclosure agreement between the recipient and MS.
“Xenon” is the code name for the successor to the Xbox® game console from MS. Xenon is expected to launch in 2005. This white paper is designed to provide a brief overview of the primary hardware features of the console from a game developer’s standpoint.
In some cases, sizes, speeds, and other details of the Xenon console have not been finalized. Values not yet finalized are identified with a “+” sign, indicating that the numbers may be larger than indicated here. At the time of this writing, the final console is many months from entering production. Based on our experience with Xbox, it’s likely that some of this information will change slightly for the final console.
For additional information on various hardware components, see the other relevant white papers.
Xenon was designed with the following goals in mind:
•Focus on innovation in silicon, particularly features that game developers need. Although all Xenon hardware components are technologically advanced, the hardware engineering effort has concentrated on digital performance in the CPU and GPU.
•Maximize general purpose processing performance rather than fixed-function hardware. This focus on general purpose processing puts the power into the Xenon software libraries and tools. Rather than being hamstrung by particular hardware designs, software libraries can support the latest and most efficient techniques.
•Eliminate the performance issues of the past. On Xbox, the primary bottlenecks were memory and CPU bandwidth. Xenon does not have these limitations.

|why does it really matter if its big. its going to sit somehwere while ur playing it. n soon after it comes out someone is going to make a new case or make use of its size.|
Agreed. The xbox is not unreasonably large. IMO it is the best looking console, and actually feels like like a machine rather then some lite plastic toy like the other consoles do. But the xbox 2 will be more then likely small, as to kiss the minority Japanese's ass. Go figure.

So it basically turned into a flame fest of "Xbox is a huge piece of crap, it's gigantic it's heavy blah blah"
It was because of the pairing that it got shit. Once the S-Controller came out there wasnt much bitching about the xbox anymore, controller or the system.
And as far as people saying the xbox is too big and heavy, GET OFF THE FUCKING COUCH AND DO SOME REPS WITH THE SYSTEM YOU PUNY BASTARDS! MAYBE IF YOU DO THAT YOU'LL BE ABLE TO BUILD SOME DAMN MUSCLE AND CARTING AROUND THAT 9 POUNDS WONT BOTHER YOU SO MUCH!
Better yet you could play DDR and be like this girl here.
OH AND THATS 4KG FOR YOU METRIC FUCKS!!!@#@%$@%%$
