Xbox 360 Slim to feature Red Dot of Death

Posted on Friday, June 18 2010 @ 19:32:38 CEST by

DailyTech reports Microsoft's new Xbox 360 Slim console will no longer show the infamous "Red Ring of Death", instead the console has a new power indicator with a "Red Dot of Death".
At E3 2010 Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 "S" (Slim), which would replace the Xbox 360 Elite at the $300 USD price tier. The new unit is based around a integrated CPU/GPU chip using a smaller 45nm fabrication process. The internal architecture has been rearranged, with one large fan replacing the two smaller ones for cooling duties. USB ports replace Memory Unit slots and 802.11n wireless was added.

One additional change is that the RRoD has been replaced with the "Red Dot of Death" (RDoD?). The red LEDs in the ring have been removed and now only green light will show out the ring of the power indicator. Upon hardware failure, a single red LED will light up the center power indicator symbol.
