Xbox 360 Jasper units with 512MB internal memory spotted in the wild

Microsoft has apparently introduce a new Xbox 360 Jasper motherboard earlier this year, according to a poster in the XboxHacker forums. Found in a Japanese Xbox 360 Arcade this past April, the new motherboard is essentially the same as the previous with one small difference. Rather than 256MB of internal storage, the new motherboard appears to be packing 512MB.

While the unit pictured below and describe is Japanese, some very aware members of the Xbox-Scene forums claim to have the board as well, meaning the new hardware may already be available in North America. Microsoft did not make any announcement on the new models and we’re also not aware of any surefire way to spot one of these new units without taking them out of the box, though the ones that were mentioned were manufactured in April 2009.  But once you fired up your consoles you’d just need to see how much memory was listed in the settings menu.
