The Xbox Series X, Microsoft’s next generation console has a release date of holiday 2020 bringing with it the fastest and most powerful Xbox ever. This design moves away from the traditional console look, while allowing horizontal or vertical placement. This will have four times the processing power of the Xbox One X.
It will have eight times the GPU power of the regular Xbox One, and two times the Xbox One X. It will feature GDDR6 memory to keep up with the rest of the system. The new controller has a refined size and shape. It features a new share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple. There’s an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller. The controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as well as any Xbox Series X console.
Prepare for next generation Forza; Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II and Halo Infinite among the powerhouse of the current Xbox Game Studios family. 4k at 60fps world class visuals with the power to hit 120FPS. There will be VRR support and 8k resolution possible. It’s powered by the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from AMD.
There will be hardware accelerated ray tracing, and patented VRS (variable rate shading) technology to allow developers to get more out of the GPU. Next generation SSD will virtually eliminate load times. ALLM will minimize latency, and DLI will make it even more responsive. Xbox Backwards compatibility will cover four generations of games on the platform. Peripherals from Xbox One will work with the Series X. That’s all for now, we’ll be watching this closely.
