Jasper-equipped Xbox 360s arrive, manufacturing date, lot and team details revealed

According to the Xbox 360 DVD Drive Database, it appears Xbox 360s outfitted with the much-anticipated Jasper chipset have finally started showing up in stores and at online retailers.

The key things to look for when buying a new Xbox 360 with the Jasper chipset is a manufacturing date (MFR) as early as 2008-08-06, Lot 8031 and up, and Team CSON. (You may have to bribe your local GameSpot salesperson to poke his or her finger through the serial number window of 360 box to inspect the manufacturing date.)

For those unfamiliar with why Jasper’s such a big deal, the chipset features 65nm (nanometers) GPU and CPU chips that require less power and are expected to offer cooler, quieter operation – and consequently fewer RRoD (Red Ring of Death) failures.

Here’s a link so you can check out all of the details for yourself: Xbox 360 DVD Drive Database.

    No pictures, no Jasper!
    No one on that website could prove them being Jaspers, they just went along and reported claim having it because of the lot# (manufacturing date)!

    Sorry, but in my book that still isn’t proof!

    Dude, that website is not credible. The Jaspers are not out yet.

    Three of the four “Jaspers” in that database are “its really quiet so it must be a Jasper zomg!”

    The last is an obvious troll. Sigh.

    I call bogus on the Jaspers also.
    You’d have to open the 360 and examine it to be sure, AND you’d have to know what you are looking for.

    On Falcons you could see the power on the sticker on the box (175W). Jasper should requre less power and therefore a lower watt number on the sticker.
