The Xbox Series X Has very Impressive Specifications and a Whole New Design

So with the PlayStation 5 information finally released, we will dive into the Xbox Series X overview in order to see if this new Xbox is worth the title of truly next generation. We will first take a look at the specification for the brand new Xbox since it will be the biggest determining factor in just how powerful this console really is.

Specifications

To put it in perspective, the head of Xbox called Phil Spencer has said that the Xbox Series X is four times as powerful as the previous generation. Now that is a bold statement and fans were unsure about the legitimacy of what he said, that was until they saw the official specifications.


CPU: 8x Cores @ 3.8 GHz (3.6 GHz w/ SMT) Custom Zen 2 CPU

GPU: 12 TFLOPS, 52 CUs @ 1.825 GHz Custom RDNA 2 GPU

Die Size: 360.45 mm2

Process: 7nm Enhanced

Memory: 16 GB GDDR6 w/ 320b bus

Memory Bandwidth: 10GB @ 560 GB/s, 6GB @ 336 GB/s

Internal Storage: 1 TB Custom NVME SSD

I/O Throughput: 2.4 GB/s (Raw), 4.8 GB/s

Expandable Storage: 1 TB Expansion Card (matches internal storage exactly)

External Storage: USB 3.2 External HDD Support

Optical Drive: 4K UHD Blu-Ray Drive

Performance Target: 4K @ 60 FPS, Up to 120 FPS


The Xbox Series X has seen a significant upgrade in almost every aspect, not to mention that for the first time in console history the performance target is an extremely high 120 frames per second. The current Xbox One has a performance target of 60 FPS which makes the Xbox Series X worthy of the next generation title.


The CPU, GPU and RAM have received some incredible upgrades that rival a modern day PC, though consoles are still behind the current high end PC’s. It’s worth noting that the Xbox Series X has better specifications than the PS5 but not by an amount that pushes it way above the latest PlayStation.


Design

The design of the Xbox Series X has shocked many people due to the sheer height of the new console. It is by far the tallest console we have seen in recent memory and the reason for it being so tall comes down to preventing overheat technical issues that caused the infamous red ring of death on the Xbox 360, giving the Xbox Series X more room to breath will result in a much better gaming experience that makes the dimensions of the Series X worth it.




Release Date

The release date for the Xbox series X has not yet been confirmed down to the exact date but we do know that you will be able to pick up one of these consoles, being the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. When we get an official release date we will be sure to let you know along with any additional information about the next generation consoles.


Exclusive Games

The Xbox Series X doesn’t have as many confirmed exclusives as the PlayStation 5 but in a way that's a good thing, it means whatever games were designed for the new Xbox will also be available on PC with the possibilty of a Nintendo Switch Port.


Halo Infinite

Ask anyone what game they played the most on their Xbox and the majority would say Halo, the Halo franchise has been around since the very first Xbox, multiplayer and a great campaign were the biggest defining features of the Halo franchise and while we wait for some new gameplay reveals of Halo Infinite, we will be back in the perspective of Master Chief blasting covenant.
