Background and Identification
Released in late 2020, the Xbox Series X serves as the debut of Microsoft’s new line of Xbox Series consoles. With a completely new form factor prioritizing cooling and Microsoft’s new Velocity architecture, the new Xbox Series X boasts backwards compatibility with existing Xbox One devices and games, even letting users use their existing Xbox One controllers. Xbox One and select Xbox 360 and original Xbox games will be backwards compatible.
The Xbox Series X targets true 4K gaming at 120 fps. It features a system-on-chip (SoC) with AMD’s Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU architectures to deliver 12 teraflops of graphical computing performance, double that of last generation’s Xbox One X.
Select game titles will have an “Optimized for Series X|S” icon, offering faster load times, higher resolutions, and smoother frame rates. The Xbox Series X is available in a dark black finish and includes a redesigned Xbox controller, featuring a new share button, textured triggers and bumpers, and a new D-pad.
