Teardowns find 'Microsoft Inside' Xbox 360

Here's another, more detailed, Xbox 360 "reverse engineering" article: - Teardowns find 'Microsoft Inside' Xbox 360.

Most of the chips have Microsoft's label on the package. At least in the case of the GPU, I believe that Microsoft bought the design from ATI and is paying royalties. I've read that this is a different business model from that of the original Xbox. Microsoft apparently wants more control over the silicon and any cost reduction efforts.
