Microsoft has finally shred some light on its new gaming console that is supposed to change the gaming industry forever. Some of the leaked specs seem true and as Xbox team has confirmed the specs let’s have a greater look to this new generation of gaming consoles.
AMD and Microsoft have worked closely to make the Xbox Series X the most powerful gaming console ever within a small form factor. “The next major tenet of the Xbox Series X is speed,” Microsoft says, but that doesn’t mean the company is giving up on compatibility or usability.
Well, we did know few key features of the Xbox series X and its promise to deliver 4K games at 60 fps, as well as support for up to 120 fps for “the most demanding and competitive games.” Also, the hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing is real and Microsoft has shown the demo of it as well.
This will give users more authentic and life-like gaming experience than ever, delivering twice the frame rate that the Xbox One X supported. The strong hardware supports the smoothness in gameplay and efficiency of this ‘new-gen’ gaming console.

Microsoft is quoting 10 GB of bandwidth at 560 GB/s, or 6GB at 336 GB/s. For storage, the Xbox Series X is using a custom NVME SSD with 1 TB of capacity. The SSD seems fast too, with 2.4 GB/s RAW, but that as much as doubles to 4.8 GB/s when the console uses compression with a custom hardware decompression block.
