New consoles are more faster than ever
Microsoft’s fastest and most powerful console, the Xbox Series X, was unveiled a few months ago. It is expected to set a new limit in terms of performance, speed and game support, giving players the opportunity to play thousands of games across four generations of consoles.
So far, the Xbox Series X has been a mystery, with Microsoft and data miners having revealed only minor details and some console views. However, an article today has revealed all the details of the console, including its settings and key features.
Here is the complete list of all specifications:
- CPU: 8x Cores @ 3.8 GHz (3.66 GHz w/SMT) Custom Zen 2 CPU
- GPU: 12 TFLOPS, 52 CUs @ 1.825 GHz Custom RDNA 2 GPU
- Die Size: 360.45 mm2
- Process: Enhanced 7nm
- Memory: 16 GB GDDR6 with 320mb bus
- Memory bandwidth: 10GB @ 560 GB/s, 6GB @ 336 GB/s
- Internal storage: 1 TB Custom NVME SSD
- I/O Throughput: 2.4 GB/s (Raw), 4.8 GB/s (Compressed)
- Extensible Memory: 1 TB Expansion Card (identical to internal memory)
- External Memory: USB 3.2 External HDD Support
- Optical Drive: 4K UHD Blu-Ray
- Drive Expected performance: 4K @ 60 FPS, up to 120 FPS
In terms of power and performance, the Xbox Series X is a huge step up from its successor, the Xbox One X. In fact, the console can be twice as powerful. Games will look better and be faster, while lag input and screen tearing will be minimal. It’s a very powerful console comparable to modern PCs, but its speed will definitely be worth it.
Along with these settings, some of the newest and most important features showing the speed of the Xbox Series X were also introduced.
Initially, we have a Quick Resume tech demo. Now, you won’t have to close one game to play another, as you can simply restart which game you want right away.
The video shows a player playing Forza Motorsport 7, before stopping and moving to Ori and the Blind Forest. He then moves on to The Cave, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and State of Decay 2, never ending the previous game.
The second video shows the speed difference between Series X and One X. Series X starts State of Decay 2 in 10 seconds, while the Xbox One X takes 50 seconds to start the game.
This all comes from the new SSD as well as a technology Microsoft calls Xbox Velocity Architecture, which integrates hardware and software tightly allowing 100GB of gaming assets to be used immediately by developers.
The video also shows one of the most important features of the Xbox Series X, backwards compatibility. Microsoft says all Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games will be better played on Xbox Series X.
