Previous known as Project Scarlett, the upcoming Xbox Series X is the next-generation console from Microsoft. More information about the specifications and features of the tall box-like console has been revealed.

Identical to the older Xbox consoles, the Series X will continue using hardware from AMD, which incorporates their latest Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU micro-architecture. According to Microsoft, there will be four times more processor power and eight times more GPU performance (12 TFLOPs) than a Xbox One. For comparison, a Radeon RX 5700 XT and NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card has an approximate 9 TFLOPs and 11 TFLOPs of FP32 performance respectively.

Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and hardware-based DirectX Raytracing are implemented to allow better efficiency for the GPU and quality for games. Slow HDD is replaced with SSD as the primary storage, which should improve loading time and responsiveness. The Xbox Series X will also support HDMI 2.1 with Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and up to 120 fps for compatible displays.

The Xbox Series X is expected to release on late 2020 during the holiday season. You can know more about the new console on Microsoft’s website.
