Jasper Xbox 360s on the Shelves?

From joeygadget.com:


According to the Xbox 360 DVD Drive Database, it appears Xbox 360s outfitted with the much-anticipated Jasper chipset have finally started showing up in stores and at online retailers.

The key things to look for when buying a new Xbox 360 with the Jasper chipset is a manufacturing date (MFR) as early as 2008-08-06, Lot 8031 and up, and Team CSON.

Exactly....how would they know what they're looking for in a different model? I doubt it will say Jasper on the box. 360drives has had the Jasper option available for a few months now so it was only a matter of time before people just started putting it for their model. If they're so confident that have a Jasper why not post pics on a popular website such as this one?!


update:
HAHA, here's what one of the posters on 360 drives said was his proof that it was a Jasper "All I can say is that it was made in September, so that leads me to believe it's a Jasper, unless you think they are still making Falcons in September"
bloody brilliant Trebek!!!

This means nothing without pics. People on this site have been claiming to have Jasper boards for months in their avatar info.

65nm gpu, since the gpu overheating was the major problem that caused about %99 of 3rlod alot of ppl are waiting to get a 360 with a gpu that stays cooler, not to mention the supposed redesigned cooling system (that i will be redesigning when i get my hands on one).

agreed, i would have waited for pix before i posted on main page, i think it will be mid-late nov before these start showing up but i have been wrong before.

+1

Maybe the title should be changed to 'Rumor:' until there's some solid proof!

I owned a Xenon 360 which I had to fix using the x-clamp method and the drive was bad, I had longer loading times in BF:BC than all the other players. So I waited a long time for that Jasper box.

Then I bought a Falcon with Benq yesterday, because I don't want a Liteon drive. The Falcon is in no way more silent than a Xenon and I really don't think the Jasper will be. It will be a little cooler and maybe need less power, but I don't think there will be a noticeable difference in noise production
