New Xbox360 Slim Motherboard: 'Corona' - HANA Chip 'Gone'
Posted by XanTium | October 20 13:25 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
It looks like Microsoft released a new Xbox360 Slim motherboard codename 'Corona'.

This new motherboard was found in a Forza 4 250 Go Pack with black matte finish, a Liteon 1071 ODD and 2011-08-17 MFR. The PSU goes from 10.83A (for the orginal 'Trinity' Slim motherboard) to 9.86A.

The biggest change it that it looks like the HANA chip is "gone". It is suggested the HANA and SouthBridge have been put together into 1 chip on this new motherboard. This could have (serious) implications for the Reset Glitch Hack (RGH) as it was using the HANA chip for the timing management (but there might be alternatives). But at this time it's too early to tell. However it is (very) unlikely this is a answer from MS to the RGH ... a motherboard revision takes months of preparation and this motherboard was manufactured before the RGH was even released.

@k0mpresd: looks like XanTium took the pictures from your thread on XBH which was linked from the source thread.

It should be noted by people not checking that there are differences between the 250GB board and the 4GB board as the TSOP is on top vs on the bottom, so k0mpresd's comments are important.

Yea just as how the SMC RGH is a year old.

+ I don't call this Corona as the processor did not change.

More like Trinity V2.

Wasn't there a rumor that Microsoft was going to release a new version of the Xbox 360 that only supports 1080p via HDMI? Perhaps this is said model? Did I imagine this?

Just got a kinect 4gb bundle, made 8/10 and it has 9.6amp 12v rail so I'm guessing it's a corona, Correct?

Who names these boards anyways? Is it like a star where first observer gets to name it?

I doubt Microsoft sends over an information packet on the new mo'bos to the news sites.
