The new Xbox cannot come out soon enough, especially now that we’re all quarantined and need something to do!
While we wait for the Xbox Series X to be released, the official specs have been revealed to the public. On top of the proprietary external 1TB SSD, here is everything included in this machine:
CPU: 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.8GHz (3.6GHz with SMT)
GPU: 12 TFLOPs, 52 CUs at 1.825GHz, Custom RDNA 2
Die Size: 360.45mm2
Process: TSMC 7nm Enhanced
Memory: 16GB GDDR6
Memory Bandwidth: 10GB at 560GB/s, 6GB at 336GB/s
Internal Storage: 1TB Custom NVMe SSD
I/O Throughput: 2.4GB/s (Raw), 4.8GB/s (Compressed)
Expandable Storage: 1TB Expansion Card
External Storage: USB 3.2 HDD Support
Optical Drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray Drive
Performance Target: 4K at 60fps – up to 120fps
This Series X processor is powerful enough to be able to run four Xbox One S game sessions at the same time. It can also handle a more intensive Ray Tracing by harnessing the equivalent of 25 teraflops of power. There is also a quick resume feature that stores the game states in the SSD and allows you to turn off, unplug, or update the console, while then being able to boot up where you left off.
The Xbox blogpost wrote:
“One of the testers on the team unplugged his console for a week, then took an update, and was still able to continue right where he left off without so much as a loading screen.”
It should be noted that the Series X is capable of applying: “convincing HDR effects even to games that weren’t designed with that functionality in mind.”
Are you looking forward to the new Xbox?
