60GB Xbox 360 takes steps to eliminate red ring of death


The honorable Benheck has graciously torn apart one of the new 60GB Xbox 360s for us, and its innards are sorta blah, but there’s at least one important change going on.

Microsoft appears to have removed the bottom memory chips so as to prevent the overheating that leads to the red ring of death. We can assume, then, the the memory chips on top have doubled in capacity.

Other than that, it’s more or less the same Falcon board we’ve seen for a little bit. The DVD drive is a Lite-On, which may be useful news for those of you looking to flash your drive for your own ends.
