The surprise blockbuster was introduced at The Game Awards 2019 yesterday, when Microsoft introduced Project Scarlett’s design, dubbed Xbox Series X. Now specific information about the configuration and price of the Xbox Series X has not been officially announced, but there are some points worth noting about Microsoft’s next-gen machine to compete with the PlayStation 5:
Microsoft says the Xbox Series X will have twice the GPU processing power of the Xbox One X, 8 times that of the original Xbox One, equipped with an AMD 2-core Zen 2 AMD chip, clocked at 3.6 GHz. . AMD’s GPU also, the Navi platform generates 12 teraflop processing power. The CPU of Xbox Series X is 4 times more powerful than that of Xbox One X. The machine is equipped with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, and game developers will be able to use 13GB of them to run the game. Like the PS5, the Xbox Series X also has an NVMe SSD, but it’s unclear how fast and how fast it is. Some sources believe that the SSD in Xbox Series X will have a maximum reading speed of 2GB / s.
Basically, the Xbox Series X is a PC with AMD’s 7nm CPU and GPU, aiming to be able to handle games at 4K / 60FPS instead of 4K / 30FPS while still having the same frame rate drop as the console generation. present. No information is available on the device’s ports, other than USB-A in the lower right corner of the Xbox Series X.
The above technologies may be integrated into Game Core OS, the operating system platform that operates the Xbox Series X, running on DirectX 12. Thanks to GameCore OS and DirectX 12, you can see the trailer of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade. II is very beautiful.
Immediately after its introduction, Xbox Series X became the subject of image editing on the internet because it was “a bit squarish”, just like a vertical IT Mini PCX case. The device size is based on the size of the 13mm USB-A port that will probably be 157x157x312mm, with a larger capacity, allowing the cooling system to work more efficiently than the cute little Xbox One X. But in return, the device will not be able to fit neatly inside the TV table, next to the amplifier, receiver or other home entertainment devices, although Microsoft says it can still be placed horizontally neatly.
Support backward compatibility from Xbox, Xbox 360 to Xbox One
Not only with the hardware of the Xbox Series X, but with the Project xCloud streaming platform, brothers who buy the Xbox Series X will be able to play all the games on the old Microsoft console, from the original Xbox, to the Xbox 360 and then Xbox One too.
Xbox Series X is expected to sell by the end of 2020, but the price has not been confirmed. Maybe Microsoft will introduce more about their machine at E3 2020 taking place in June next year.
