MICROSOFT REVEALS FULL SPECS OF XBOX SERIES X

M

by the numbers

icrosoft fully pulled back the
curtains and revealed all of the
technical specs for its upcoming next-gen console, the Xbox Series X,
including details about its CPU, GPU, internal storage, and backward compatibility
with games from prior Xbox consoles.
Microsoft detailed the Xbox Series X's
impressive custom processor, which it designed in tandem with AMD. Its Zen 2 CPU
clocks 3.8 GHz for more than four times
the performance of the Xbox One X, while
its RDNA 2 graphics processor will offer
significant advancements over anything
seen in a console today.
The latter's 12 teraflops means that the
Xbox Series X is capable of performing
twice as many computations per second as
the Xbox One X, as well as providing features such as DirectX Raytracing for lifelike
lighting. Its 16 GB GDDR6 memory, with
10 GB accessible by the GPU, is the same
that's used in top-of-the-line PC graphics
cards today.
Similar to certain models of the existing
Xbox One line, the Xbox Series X's SSD
will offer 1 TB of internal storage. More
importantly, however, the Xbox Series X
SSD is capable of delivering 2.4 GB/s raw
input/output processing, and 4.8 GB/s

Xbox Series X is
capable of performing
twice as many
computations per
second as the
Xbox One X

compressed. For players, that means
much faster loading times, less pop-in
of assets, and a higher level of detail in
what's actually on the screen, as the SSD
is able to more quickly retrieve a much
larger amount of information than prior
consoles.
On the consumer side, the Xbox Series
X will offer Smart Delivery, which automatically lets you play games you purchased
for Xbox One on Xbox Series X, as long
as they're marked as Smart Delivery. This
means that if you don't upgrade to the Xbox
Series X at launch and you're still buying
Xbox One games come this holiday season,
you won't have to buy those games again
once you jump into next-gen gaming.
Xbox Series X's baseline graphics output will be 4K resolution
at 60 frames per second (fps),
though some games will be
able to output 120 fps to
120Hz TVs and monitors.
HDMI 2.1 also means less
latency, so competitive
gaming will become
more viable on Microsoft's console when
it launches in holiday
2020.
