    According to industry sources, plans to produce CPUs for the Microsoft Xbox 360 game console on 65nm at Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing will be pushed back until the middle of 2007. In April 2006, Chartered announced that it had signed an agreement with Microsoft to manufacture CPUs for the Xbox 360 console on 65nm Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology starting in the first quarter of 2007. Chartered is already a major foundry partner for producing Microsoft's Xbox 360 CPUs on 90nm technology. Both companies declined to comment on the news.

    Guess they lied. Nothing new from Microsoft, no matter how many people on this forum praise them like deities :)

    Note that 99% of the overheating issues in the beginning were due to stupid users.
    Can't do much about clueless morons.

    I know MANY people who own a x360 and never had overheating problems.
