Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has this morning published a new blog post in which he shares some new details on the Xbox Series X and what we can expect from the next generation of gaming.
In his post, Spencer reveals that the Xbox Series X is powered by a custom-designed processor leveraging AMD’s latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures which delivers four times the processing power of an Xbox One and enables developers to leverage 12 TFLOPS of GPU performance – twice that of an Xbox One X and more than eight times the original Xbox One.
Spencer also mentions the XSX will house their next-generation SSD, which he says will ‘improve every aspect of playing games‘, and you will also be able to suspend multiple games at a time and use the ‘Quick Resume’ feature to just jump back into them where you left off. Microsoft’s next-gen console will also support 120fps.
Also confirmed in the post is the XSX will be backward compatible, allowing you to play four generations worth of games on the console and gaming accessories you may have purchased for your older consoles will also be compatible with the new hardware.
He snuck it in there, but Spencer also confirmed Halo Infinite will be available on Xbox’s Game Pass on the game’s release day – as will the majority of their first-party games.
