Microsoft has unveiled its much-awaited gaming console, which was earlier known as Project Scarlett. Now, the next-generation Xbox will be called Xbox Series X and it will be out by Christmas 2020, as per the news. The console looks more like a PC with a tower-like design that is supposed to lie horizontally. The square tower-like design is meant to provide enhanced cooling to the console and will also provide both horizontal and vertical orientations.
Microsoft has also made some modifications in the design of the next Box wireless controller to accommodate a wider spectrum of people. The new Xbox Wireless Controller will now be compatible with Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One. There will be a share button to make sharing the screenshots and game clips easier than it was before.
Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s Xbox chief, said, “Xbox Series X deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way.” The Xbox Series X will now include a custom-designed CPU that is based on Radeon RDNA and AMD’s Zen 2 architecture. Microsoft is also using a patented rate shading technology called NVMe SSD on the new next gen Xbox Series X, that focusses on boosting the load times and also on extracting more performance. In fact, Xbox Series X will now also support 8K gaming and frame rates of up to 120 FPS in ray tracing, gaming, and other various refresh rate supports. All this has emerged the Xbox Series X as more powerful than the last few generations of gaming consoles.
