June 18, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The new Xbox 360 gaming console that was launched at the E3 2010 event has been unboxed and torn down to reveal its components by the guys at solomods.com. In addition to breaking down the device, they have also created a mod for the new gaming console.

The teardown has revealed that the new version of the Xbox 360 features a Philips Lite-On DG-16D4S drive with 250 GB worth of space. It is also smaller in size and is placed at the bottom of the device. The internal assembly is also very clean and organized and the CPU and GPU are stacked properly.

The Xbox 360 2010 also features 3 USB ports on its back in addition to the HDMI, Ethernet, power and optical audio ports. The built-in WiFi in the device can also be replaced easily in case of damage. The buttons for power and eject on the device are very sensitive and just have to be touched lightly instead of applying a lot of pressure.

The gadget has also found to be much more silent in operation owing to the large fan being wrapped in foam. Its power consumption levels were also found to be lower than previous versions of the device.

However, the new design also has its share of issues. The glossy appearance of the new Xbox shows fingerprints very easily. The device’s face plate can also no longer be detached. A data transfer kit and HDMI cable are not present along with the device and have to be bought separately.

Check out the video below to see the modified version of the 2010 Xbox 360.
