Xbox Series X specs
All hail the new most powerful gaming console in the land. On paper, the Series X has the PlayStation 5 dead to rights. The Series X packs an 8-core 3.8-GHz AMD Zen 2-based CPU while the PS5 has an 8-core, 3.5-GHz AMD Zen 2-based CPU.
Both systems have 16GB of GDDR6 RAM. The Series X has a leg up on GPUs and storage with a 12-teraflop AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 52 Compute Units (CU) and a 1TB custom NVMe SSD for storage. The PS5 is outfitted with a 10.3-teraflop AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 36 CU and a custom 825GB SSD. It seems slight, but those additional teraflops can make all the difference.
As for the Series S, it has a lower-clocked 3.6-GHz AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 10GB of RAM, a 4-teraflop AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 20 CPU, and 512GB of storage.
Xbox Series X 4K, 8K and beyond
All that power under the hood means the Series X is capable of serious video output. The console is rated to play 8K video in High Dynamic Resolution (HDR). It’s a bit of future-proofing as there isn’t any 8K content at the moment — at least not for mainstream consumption. In the meantime, you can enjoy 4K video. And if you can’t find any content on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, there’s always Blu-ray thanks to the physical drive.
But that’s not why you’re buying the Series X. You’re looking to game in glorious 4K and the console doesn’t disappoint. The console lets you blast enemies at 4K, 60 frames per second, but has the ability to kick things up to 120 fps thanks to all that power. Pushing the frame rate up to 120 fps means a smoother experience than at 60 fps, better animation detail, less input lag, and ultimately a better gaming experience.
There are currently 16 games that support 120 fps, including Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Gears 5 and Touryst, an upcoming title. The library is sure to grow after launch.
