The Xbox Series X is going to be lightning-fast than Microsoft’s current consoles, Xbox head Phil Spencer said in a blog post, the company has also announced some more details about how fast it will really be. Microsoft also made it official that the Series X will have up to 12 teraflops of GPU performance.
The company said it would be twice as fast as the Xbox One X before, and four times more powerful than the original Xbox One. This console will be powered by AMD’s Zen2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU architecture, the latter of which isn’t available on PCs just yet.
The Xbox Series X will have an NVMe SSD to speed up load times as well. Microsoft also told that the Series X will have hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing for “true-to-life lighting, accurate reflections and realistic acoustics in real-time.”
The PlayStation 5 will also have its own take on raytracing, running an upcoming RDNA GPU. It should be very comparable to Microsoft’s system architecture. Microsoft also said a new technology called “Smart Delivery,” which will enable you to buy a game once and play the most suitable version on the Series X or Xbox One. That is one amazing news in itself.
