We are currently working on upgrading our specs, but here are some short details.

CPU: 32-bit 733 MHz, Pentium III-based, custom Intel Coppermine-based processor in a Micro-PGA2 package (though soldered to the mainboard using BGA). 180 nm process.[8]
SSE floating point SIMD. Four single-precision floating point numbers per clock cycle.
MMX integer SIMD
133 MHz 64-bit GTL+ front-side bus to GPU
32 KB L1 cache. 128 KB on-die L2 "Advanced Transfer Cache"

Shared memory subsystem
64 MB DDR SDRAM at 200 MHz; in dual-channel 128-bit configuration giving 6400 MB/s
Supplied by Hynix or Samsung depending on manufacture date and location

GPU and system chipset: 233 MHz "NV2A" ASIC. Co-developed by Microsoft and Nvidia.
Geometry engine: 115 million vertices/second, 125 million particles/second (peak)
4 pixel pipelines with 2 texture units each
932 megapixels/second (233 MHz x 4 pipelines), 1,864 megatexels/second (932 MP×2 texture units) (peak)
Peak triangle performance (32pixel divided from filrate): 29,125,000 32-pixel triangles/s raw or w. 2 textures and lit.
485,416 triangles per frame at 60 frame/s
970,833 triangles per frame at 30 frame/s
8 textures per pass, texture compression, full scene anti-aliasing (NV Quincunx, supersampling, multisampling)
Bilinear, trilinear, and anisotropic texture filtering
Similar to the GeForce 3 and GeForce 4 PC GPUs

Storage media
2×–5× (2.6 MB/s–6.6 MB/s) CAV DVD-ROM
8 or 10 GB, 3.5 in, 5,400 RPM hard disk. Formatted to 8 GB. FATX file system.
Optional 8 MB memory card for saved game file transfer.

64 3D sound channels (up to 256 stereo voices)
HRTF Sensaura 3D enhancement
MIDI DLS2 Support
Monaural, Stereo, Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital Live 5.1, and DTS Surround (DVD movies only) audio output options

Integrated 10/100BASE-TX wired ethernet

DVD movie playback (Add-on required)

A/V outputs: composite video, S-Video, component video, SCART, Digital Optical TOSLINK, and
stereo RCA analog audio

Resolutions: 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i

Controller ports: 4 proprietary USB 1.1 ports

Weight: 3.86 kg (8.5 lb)

Dimensions: 320×100×260 mm (12.5×4×10.5 in)
