Sony right now is the one that hasn’t revealed the price of its upcoming console. Everything about Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and in this article you will get every detail on the specifications, Release Date, Price and etc. The design of the console is similar to a PC desktop tower which can also be kept horizontally. It isn’t that big length wish instead it is wider. In the front, we can see the Xbox button, disc drive, and the eject button. There doesn’t appear to be a USB port on the front connecting a wired controller.
The controller of Xbox Series X is somewhat like the controller of Xbox One which includes the use of AA batteries instead of a rechargeable pack. There is also a share button on the front as well as a modular hybrid d-pad, making it easier to do diagonal inputs. The size is smaller than the previous controller and its curved day differently. In the gaming market, Xbox One is the most powerful console but Series X is much better than it. The head of Xbox, Phil Spencer says Series X’s GPU is eight times faster than the base Xbox One which makes it twice as fast as the Xbox One X. Xbox Series X has AMD’s current-generation Zen 2 processor architecture plus a graphics processor using AMD’s forthcoming RDNA 2 microarchitecture which means it is presumably built on the Navi 7-nanometer process.
This console’s CPU is an eight-core custom Zen 2 processor running at 3.8GHz and its GPU is a custom RDNA 2 processor at 1.825GHz with 52 CUs which creates 12 teraflops. What this does is puts Microsoft’s new console among some of the higher-end gaming PCs. There is also 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, a 1TB solid-state drive, an HDMI 2.1 connection carried over from the previous model, and an optical drive for game discs.
