Jasper, the next version of the Xbox 360 motherboard, has been leaked and apparently it comes with new unannounced goodies. Apart from the rumored 65nm graphics processing unit-the unit uses a 150W power supply, 25W less than before, which signals a lower consumption most probably caused by the reduced GPU footprint-the new units allegedly come with a new south bridge and, surprise surprise, a 256MB flash memory chip for internal storage.

According to Xbox Scene, the new 256MB chip will allow to install the entire new NXE dashboard without requiring the hard drive or any external flash memory unit. It will also allow you to store XLBA games, save gamesave information, or whatever you want. The rest of the motherboard layout stays the same, except for the RAM memory configuration, which changes from the previous version. [Xbox Scene]

If someone from Microsoft is listening, How about IE for the 360, both Wii and PS3 have browsers and you sell a key pad for the 360 already, and if you cant make Xbox Live free, then lose the ads, as for the new GPU, big deal, 25w, the drive is a bigger problem, its way to load, Even if downloading the games helps, a better drive would be good for games like Halo 3, that don't load as fast from the HD, and While i'm asking for things, support for NTFS formated hard drives and more codecs support like the new western digital Media Player has, and better video up sampling, I Won't bother you about blue ray built in or wireless, both would be great but wired seems best for video, so that's one less thing for me to complain about and I do love my 360, Despite its flaws.
