We have yet to see anything significant for the PlayStation 5, and here we are with a full list of specifications for the Xbox Series X. And, these come directly from Microsoft, so this is all confirmed information.
Xbox Series X Performance and Graphics
For starters, the Xbox Series X will deliver 12 teraflops of performance and is built on top of AMD’s new RDNA 2 architecture. The GPU feature 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a viable memory bus. That means that 10GB will run at 560 GB/s while the remaining 6GB will run at 330 GB/s.
Xbox Series S Storage Expansion
Remember that leaked image of a prototype that had what everyone believed was a proprietary expansion port? Well, that’s exactly what it was. The Series X will support two types of external memory – the standard external hard drive like you use for your Xbox One or this new Seagate proprietary drive that is, essentially, an SSD drive packing into a very tiny package.
Xbox Series X and 4K
Microsoft is aiming to deliver 4K and 60 fps as standard with some titles being able to target 120 frames per second and support for variable refresh rate displays. Will you need to buy a new TV to get the best out of the Xbox Series X? Well, Microsoft hasn’t confirmed that yet, but if your TV is more than a year old, it’s probably not going to look quite as good as it would if it was a new TV.
