This is one we've still got filed as a rumour for now, but images have appeared which are said to be the motherboard of a new, slimmer Xbox 360 model.

Microsoft hasn't yet announced a new Xbox 360 SKU, but rumours of a new 'Valhalla' model have long been circulating, Joystiq reports.

The rumours are strengthened by Microsoft's tentative steps towards new form factors, as hinted by Steve Ballmer, and recent job adverts.

The images come from a Chinese tech forum which says these new motherboard designs are for the rumoured Valhalla project.

If true, the new Xbox 360 would be getting a massive size reduction. Other changes would be a consolidated CPU/GPU, an extra SATA port and a much smaller heatsink.

Microsoft has yet to comment on the images, which we've included below, but you can tell us your thoughts in the forums.
