We have been eagerly waiting to hear anything about PlayStation 5, but Sony is still not ready to slip out anything. However, we finally have some information regarding PS5’s biggest competitor, Xbox Series X.
Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, revealed the specifications of Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox Series X. When you look at the powerful hardware packed inside the console, you would be nothing but amazed.
How Powerful is Xbox Series X?
According to Microsoft, the custom processor leverages AMD’s latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The processor will enable the Xbox Series X developers to include 12 TERAFLOPS of GPU performance.
This GPU performance is twice as powerful when compared to Xbox One X, eight times the original Xbox One. Also, according to Nerdist, a popular YouTuber, Xbox Series X’s GPU is roughly three times more powerful than that of a PlayStation 4 Pro.
In addition to the incredibly powerful processor, the console comes with Microsoft’s patented form of Variable Rate Shading (VRS). According to the company, VRS will give better frame rates and higher resolution with no effect on image quality. And by better, we mean frame rates up to 120fps with a maximum resolution of 8K.
Also, Xbox Series X features ‘Hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing’, and this is the first time that this feature is included in a console. The feature allows developers to add true-to-life lighting, accurate reflections, and realistic acoustics in real-time.
Other than the powerful hardware specs, Xbox Series X comes with ‘Smart Delivery’ and ‘Quick resume’ features. The former one allows you to play a game on Xbox One or Xbox Series X by only purchasing the game once.
On the other hand, the Quick Resume feature will allow players to resume multiple games from a suspended state.
Finally, according to Microsoft, in addition to the titles across four generations of consoles, Xbox Game Pass will have the company’s first-party games, like Halo Infinity. So, anyone who pays for Xbox Game Pass will be able to play these games without spending any further.
We’ll keep you updated on the detailed specification of Xbox Series X as more information flows from Microsoft’s end.
