Microsoft revealed full specs for its next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, on Monday morning. The company said the console will “set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility” — and the specs seem to support that.
In a letter to fans, Xbox head Phil Spencer detailed the Xbox Series X’s custom processor that’s said to be “four times the processing power of an Xbox One,” allowing developers to use 12 teraflops of GPU performance — “twice that of an Xbox One X and more than eight times the original Xbox One.” He also outlined the console’s variable rate shading and “hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing,” as well as details on how the Xbox Series X will reduce load times — “more playing and less waiting.”
