We always knew that the Xbox Series X was going to be an impressive, powerful device, and now Microsoft has confirmed this. The company has revealed the full specifications for the upcoming game console… and it’s a beast!
The console is more like a high-end gaming PC (it’s not without good reason that Microsoft bills it as its fastest, most powerful console ever) and it offers hardware-accelerated raytracing, 4K output at 60 fps, and support for up to 120fps. All of this is driven by an 8 core AMD Zen 2 CPU and an RDNA 2-class GPU — and you’ll be able to buy it this year.
Ang kumpirmasyon ng mga spec ay nagmula sa pamamagitan ng isang post sa blog ni Xbox Wire editor-in-chief na si Will Tuttle na nagpapatunay na susuportahan ng Xbox Series X ang apat na henerasyon ng mga laro. Sinabi niya na ang susunod na henerasyong ito ng Xbox ay tinukoy ng tatlong pangunahing katangian: kapangyarihan, bilis at pagiging tugma.
The custom RDNA 2 GPU kicks out 12 TFLOPs, which is double what the Xbox One X is capable of. In addition to a 1TB SSD, there’s a 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive. Tuttle says: “The next major tenet of the Xbox Series X is speed, which can be defined in a large number of different ways. Modern devices have changed our expectations on how quickly you can move between experiences or applications. Most of us want to be able to instantly jump into an experience or return right to where we left off. This influenced the team designing the system architecture, as they wanted to ensure they enabled gamers to spend more time playing and less time waiting”.

A big part of that revolves around the addition of a solid-state drive (SSD). We have reached the upper limits of traditional rotational drive performance, so the team knew they needed to invest in SSD level I/O speeds to deliver the quality of experience they aspired to with Xbox Series X. This was an area where the team really wanted to innovate, and they knew this could be a game changer for the new generation. But they didn’t want the I/O system to be just about your games loading faster.
Ipasok ang Xbox Velocity Architecture, na nagtatampok ng mahigpit na pagsasama sa pagitan ng hardware at software at isang rebolusyonaryong bagong arkitektura na-optimize para sa streaming ng mga asset ng laro. Ito ay i-unlock ang mga bagong kakayahan na hindi pa nakita bago sa pag-unlad ng console, na nagpapahintulot sa 100 GB ng mga ari-arian ng laro na agad na maa-access ng developer. Ang mga sangkap ng Xbox Velocity Architecture ay pinagsama ang lahat upang lumikha ng isang epektibong multiplier sa pisikal na memorya na, medyo literal, isang tagapagpalit.
