The sleuths at llamma.com got their hands on an Xbox 360 Elite and were kind-hearted enough to crack it open for us. While the CPU and GPU do appear to be different than the regular 360’s, llamma doesn’t know if they’re the rumored 65nm design or not. (The 65nm chips are supposed to help drive down the cost of manufacturing, eventually leading to a lower priced 360.) Also of note is that the hard drive is incompatible with currently available hacking tools like the HDDHacker. That means no using your own SATA hard drive with the Elite for the time being.
