Revised Xbox Specs

As we predicted, Microsoft announce updated specifications for their next generation console

Last week there were murmurings about a 1GHz processor boost for Microsoft's Xbox, and while these rumours have now been quashed, there has been an update to the official Xbox specification while we were all supping on Turkey. The change concerns the nVidia graphics chip, which has been downsized to a 250MHz model, rather than the proposed 300MHz. Directly affected by this change is the machine's polygon performance, which is reduced from 150M per second to 125M. If you want to see how the Xbox now lines up with the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo's GameCube, take a gander at Microsoft's official Xbox website. In other Xbox news, Ravisent have announced that they are to be the official provider of Xbox DVD software.
