The Xbox X Series is the latest Xbox to be released by Microsoft. The Xbox X Series will join the PlayStation 5 in being the first consoles of the 9th generation.
The Xbox X Series and PlayStation 5 are going to be competing this holiday season. I’ll give you an overview of the Xbox to help you make an informed purchase of either console.
The Xbox X Series has better specs than the PlayStation 5 and It’s the most computer-like gaming console yet.
According to the official Microsoft site, these are the specs of the Xbox X Series:
- CPU – 8X Cores, 3.8GHz, Custom Zen 2 CPU
- GPU – 12 TFlops, 52 CUs, 1.825GHz Custom RDNA 2 GPU
- Memory and Storage:
- Memory – 16GB GDDR6 Memory Bandwidth – 10GB@ 560GB/s, 6GB@336 GB/s
- Storage – 1TB Custom NVME SSD
Microsoft claims that their console can run all games at 4K 60fps. They also claim that the console could run games up to 120 fps. These claims have been tested by early reviews, by testers like Austin Evansand, have been proven true.
Though the real question is: Can the Xbox X Series keep this up with future games, or can it only do this with 8 gen games?
The Xbox X Series is also a multimedia platform that allows for the highest quality streaming and video play. The Xbox X Series can play videos in 8K. 8K screens aren’t even available for the general public.
