What Is A Jasper Xbox 360?

How To Tell If Xbox 360 Console Has The Jasper Motherboard

The easiest way to identify a Jasper model is by locating the voltage/amperage rating on the unit.  The number of amps used by the 12-volt rail is 12.1 for the Jasper unit and 14.2 or 16.5 for the older units. 

The power supply can also be an identifier, but this is a little trickier as some earlier Jasper-based consoles shipped with the older 175W power supply. This is all despite the fact that the Jasper Xbox 360 consoles only require a 150W supply.

Which Xbox 360 Model Should You Get Today?

The first redesign in the Xbox 360 family is the Slim, which is also commonly referred to as the ‘S.'

The third and final redesign is the Xbox 360 E, which is not to be confused with the ‘Elite' or ‘Super Elite' – the latter two consoles are actually (and confusingly) just different versions of the original hardware with more hard drive space

The redesigned Xbox 360 Slim and Xbox 360 E models are both more compact than the original unit and add built-in support with the Kinect accessory.
