The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Microsoft has revealed an all-new system-on-chip (SoC) processor for Xbox 360 Slim models, which could pave the way for cheaper and more power-efficient consoles.

The new SoC combines the CPU, GPU memory and I/O logic into one chip, dramatically reducing the manufacturing costs. While this provides greater efficiency with less heat output, the console's motherboard and power supply can come down in size too, IBTimes reports.
