More Powerful Xbox One Possible in 2015

November 1, 2014 - Xbox One - Rumor
We Say: New Xbox One die shrink could be used to make it more powerful. Possible but unlikely.

Source Says: The main processor inside Xbox One is one of its most expensive components, with the current 28nm version estimated to cost Microsoft something in the region of $50 per chip. Physically reducing the size by 1.9x means more processors can fit onto the silicon wafers used in production, lowering costs. We can safely assume Microsoft's objectives with the revised processor will be to provide exactly the same performance as the current model (a 30 per cent performance boost offered by the smaller chip is an intriguing thought, but unlikely to materialize), while the reduced power consumption makes for a cooler, more efficient console.
