Microsoft has unveiled the full specs of its upcoming console, the Xbox Series X. Unlike previous generations, the Xbox Series X promises 4K 60 FPS gaming with an option to go as high as 120FPS, speedy load times, and compatibility with up to four generations.
Inside the vertical tower sits a custom Zen 2 processor with eight cores and 16 threads running at 3.6GHz.
Handling the graphical workload is a custom RDNA2 based GPU with 52 CUs running at 1.625 GHz, delivering up to 12 TFLOPS of performance.
The Xbox Series X comes with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, with 10GB running at 560GB/s and 6GB running at 336GB/s.
All data is stored on a 1TB custom NVMe SSD with an IO throughput of 2.4GB/s for raw files, and 4.8GB/s for compressed files. Should users require additional storage, there’s an option to add another 1TB expansion card that matches the internal storage. It also comes with a 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive. For comparison, Microsoft has uploaded a side by side load time test with the Xbox One X to show how quickly the custom NVMe storage is able to load up games.
