Microsft is launching Xbox Series X, its next-generation gaming console with most power specifications for the highest performance, a quiet and bold design, and bigger game availability. Both Microsoft and Sony are developing their next-generation game consoles. Microsoft revealed its new console called Xbox Series X coming out to compete with Sony Playstation 5.

Xbox Series X strives to be the most comprehensive gaming console Microsoft has ever created. Xbox Series X is our most powerful console ever, powered by our customized processor leveraging AMD's latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The Xbox Series X will support 8K gaming with frame rates of up to 120 fps, plus ray tracing for realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows. We also know it will support variable refresh rates (VRR), which should help with smoothness and motion handling.

Let's check out the Microsft's new Xbox Series X Release Date, Price, Controller, Specs and Features in detail:

Xbox Series X Specs and Features

The new system on a chip (SOC) has been built from the bottom up for speed and performance, with 12 teraflops of processing power and with compatibility in mind for four generations of games. The 1TB SSD provides the fastest gaming experience than ever with up to 120 FPS, and a real 4K gaming resolution and 8K ready. 

The three-channel air-flow evenly distributes the temperatures generated by the advanced internal components, keeping the console cool and quiet. The parallel cooling architecture allows stunning game experiences with incredible graphical fidelity and performance. For the first time on the console, an innovative split motherboard provides uniform temperature control of the Xbox Series X's internal components, allowing the console to produce more power.

The Head of the Xbox, Phil Spencer, claimed that Series X will be four times more powerful than the previous version i.e., Xbox One X. Raw specs say lots, but Spencer believes the components of the Xbox Series X will work together in an exceedingly revolutionary way. He said the following Microsoft console will bring “the biggest change in games since 3D graphics” due to a mixture of processor power, SSD speed, and “dynamic delay input” which will change the “feel” of how briskly the sport responds. The 8 core is four times more powerful than the previous version with a 3.8 GHz processor speed.

The memory size that will be provided will be 16 GB GDDR6 and with SSD of 1TB internal memory. There is also an option to increase the memory up to 1TB with an expansion card for those who want to stack up their console with all their favorite games.

A quick resume will allow players to immediately resume several games from where they last stopped, without requiring long loading screens.

Xbox will support ray tracing, a graphic rendering technique used by high-end gaming PCs, which makes games look more realistic than ever. The performance target resolution is 4K with up to 120 FPS.

Finally, with great power efficiency comes a large amount of heat. To prevent Xbox from melting into sticky plastic, the X-series tower case has a much larger volume to allow air to flow through parallel cooling architecture.

Xbox Series X Release Dates

At E3 2019, Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X will be launched ahead of the holiday season of 2020, but the official release date has not yet been announced. In November 2020, the company launched all of its previous Xbox models, which suggest that the Series X could follow the same schedule, eliminating any significant delays that might occur if production stops due to a coronavirus pandemic.

Xbox X Controller

According to Ryan Whitaker, senior Xbox designer, the bumpers were rounded and the triggers got improved coupling handles and rounded too. Both have a new dashed texture for better control. All they wanted to create is a controller that works better with different hand sizes.

Following in the footsteps of competitors Sony and Nintendo, Microsoft has added a special “Share” button to simplify the capture of screenshots and clips. There is also a USB-C charger that indicates the presence of a built-in rechargeable battery. Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) is expected to further reduce any lags that gamers might experience with their Xbox wireless controllers. More importantly, the Xbox also confirmed that Series X can be used with the Xbox One and vice versa. It will work even on Windows PCs and other devices.

The D-pad's hybrid design means a deeper “plate” that your thumb can fit in, and the corners are “finely tuned to give you a good shoulder with minimal movement.”

Xbox Series X Price

Surveys show that the price of the Xbox Series X will be the most important factor when gamers choose between the next-generation console from Microsoft or PS5. There is no official announcement of how much the Xbox Series X will cost. One X is the most powerful Microsoft console available to date and was released in July 2017 for $ 499.99, plus the first Xbox One released at the same price, so don't expect it to be cheaper than $ 499.99 at launch.
