Microsoft Shares New Xbox Series X Details, Specs On Website

A couple of months back, Microsoft unveiled its newest Xbox console dubbed the Xbox Series X featuring a design reminiscent of a compact PC tower. Today, the company has added some new details on its website regarding its next-gen console while noting that it will be four times as powerful as the original Xbox One (via Polygon).


According to the Xbox website, the “next-generation custom processor” on the Xbox Series X will employ AMD’s Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architecture. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer wrote that the processing and graphics power of the Xbox Series X is “a true generational leap” offering higher frame rates of up to 120 fps.

Spencer also highlighted hardware-accelerated DirectX ray tracing with “true-to-life lighting, accurate reflections and realistic acoustics in real time.” He also mentioned SSD storage support, HDMI 2.1 support, and more.

“Delivering four times the processing power of an Xbox One and enabling developers to leverage 12 [teraflops] of GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) performance – twice that of an Xbox One X and more than eight times the original Xbox One,” Spencer said.

“The new Quick Resume feature lets you continue multiple games from a suspended state almost instantly, returning you to where you were and what you were doing, without waiting through long loading screens,” Spencer said.
