The real cause of the Red Ring of Death
Gartner reveals "randomly" the origin of hardware problems Xbox 360.
Speaking to quarantacinquesima edition of the Design Automation Conference, Bryan Lewis of research firm and consultancy Gartner has revealed what appears as the "real" reason of the now famous Red Ring of Death Xbox 360, which is the most common cause of breakdown in console Microsoft before it was changed - as has happened only recently - the design of some internal components.

According to Lewis, Microsoft has simply sin of presumption, hoping to save a few tens of millions of dollars skipping a step in the design of the console graphics chip and turning directly to a Taiwanese foundry (TSMC) for the production.

As a result of the known problems of overheating, which have already cost over a billion dollars for replacement of defective console, Microsoft was then entrusted to ATI for the redesign of the chip, which now no longer defect.

The thesis of Lewis, who probably had access to confidential sources thanks to its role as an analyst, is reflected in previous statements of Robbie Bach, chief Xbox project, which has never against other companies the fault of the Red Ring of Death arguing that it was a problem of "design" originated by Microsoft itself.
