Industry analyst Colin Sebastian agrees, suggesting that "the general consensus amongst industry professionals is that a new generation of home consoles will arrive on the market in 2011 or 2012."

Terabyte storage for the Xbox 720?

295w ago - We had a chance to take a picture of a fully operational Nehalem, Bloomfield sample at 3.2GHz.

We managed to take the picture from both sides, and we can tell that the chip looks pretty much like any other Intel chip.

The socket 1366 has pins while the CPU doesn't. This baby will be known as Core i7.
