What the heck is an Xbox, anyway?

The Xbox will be Microsoft's first foray into the console gaming market. It will be based around an Intel Pentium III processor with a custom set of graphics chips produced by nVidia, a slimmed-down version of Windows 2000, and 64MB of main memory shared with the graphics processors. It will have HDTV output capabilities and an ethernet port. More information is available at xbox.ign.com and planetxbox.com
