Ever Wonder About All The X360 Failures? in Console Corner Posted July 8, 2008 The first gen of 360 consoles were problematic, i was thinking of buying one but can anyone tell me what generation is for sale today?, is it 65nm or 45nm and is that cpu and gpu?, is it written on the packaging?. From what I understand, all of the old 90nm cpu consoles are gone at this point, and the current 65nm cpu consoles are definitely more reliable than the old ones. I think I saw on Bloomberg business news that MS's expenditures on returned consoles have gone down by leaps and bounds. The new consoles seem like they may be worth a shot.
