Microsoft reveals Xbox Series X
Next generation console is coming in 2020
Microsoft has announced new Xbox Series X, the next generation of console, formerly known as Project Scarlett.
The company says the new console's industrial design can deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way. It can also support both vertical and horizontal orientation.
Alongside Xbox Series X, there's also a new Xbox Wireless Controller. Its size and shape have been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people, and it also features a new Share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple and an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be included with every Xbox Series X.
The new console promises world-class visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. Powered by custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance.
Additionally, the patented Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology will allow developers to get even more out of the Xbox Series X GPU and next-generation SSD will reduce load times.
Xbox Series X is also designed for a future in the cloud, with unique capabilities built into the hardware and software to make it as easy as possible to bring great games to both console and elsewhere.
Thanks to backward compatibility, fans can expect your gaming legacy, thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming, all your Xbox One gaming accessories, and Xbox Game Pass to be available. Games from Xbox Game Studios will support cross-generation entitlements and player Achievements and game saves are shared across devices.
Xbox Series X will be available Holiday 2020.
