Microsoft Confirms Full Xbox Series X Specifications
Mike Sanders / 12 months ago
With the spread of the Coronavirus having had a major impact on scheduled technology events, it was always something of a matter of curiosity as to as and when both Microsoft and Sony would reveal news about their upcoming next-gen consoles.
Microsoft Reveals Xbox Series X Specifications
So, what do we know about the upcoming console? Well, it should come as absolutely no surprise to find that it will utilize an AMD based Zen 2 APU style processor. Something that, in fairness, we knew as practically a 99% fact over a year ago.
In terms of the other aspects, however, with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a 1TB NVME SSD, it seems pretty clear that, overall, it’s going to pack a pretty decent punch.
What Do We Think?
Of all the specifications revealed, what is perhaps the most surprising is that Microsoft has confirmed (as a definitive fact) that the Xbox Series X will feature a Blu-ray drive. There was, after all, a lot of speculation that Microsoft may have dropped physical storage and, in fairness, they still might for alternative models.
If you were, however, curious as to what the Xbox Series X would represent, you need worry no more. We now have our specifications and we can spend at least the next 6 months debating as to how this might stack up against the PS5.
