Xbox Series X Specs Revealed By Microsoft
Posted Feb 24, 2020 by DarthHazard
Microsoft has taken the first step in helping gamers have a proper look at what to expect from the next-generation consoles by sharing new details on the Xbox Series X specifications.
“Innovative leaps in CPU, GPU and storage technology” will help gamers experience worlds that both look good and feel immersive.
So what did we find out?
The Xbox Series X will have:
- 12 Teraflops
- Variable Rate Shading
- Hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing
- The ability to "quick resume" for multiple games
- Smart delivery
Not surprisingly, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox Series X will be “our most powerful console ever” and will be powered by a custom-designed processor that takes advantage of AMD’s latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The next-generation console will be able to deliver four times the processing power of its predecessor, the Xbox One.
Developers will be able to “leverage 12 TFLOPS of GPU performance”, which will be twice that of the Xbox One X and more than eight times the original Xbox One.
Additionally, gamers can expect games with more “dynamic and realistic environments powered by hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing, which will be a first for console gaming. And that will result in true-to-life lighting, accurate reflections and realistic acoustics.
Quick Resume will allow gamers to continue multiple games from a “suspended” state almost instantly. This will see them return to wherever they were and continue what they were doing without the need to wait for a loading screen to end.
Smart Delivery, like the name suggests, will be the technology that allows gamers to simply buy a game once. And then whatever platform you play it (e.g Xbox One or the Xbox Series X), you will get “the right version of that game on whatever Xbox you’re playing on”.
