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, at least one quarter behind the original schedule.

Microsoft Taiwan declined to comment on the news, while Chartered also declined to comment, stating it did not comment on the production schedule of any of its customers.

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.

Can you upgrade to 65nm if you already have a 360?

the current chips are a bit spendy

I was referring to the part about waiting until they change over because I'm in no hurry to grab a 360 right now.. I knew about the chip change.
