Following the reveal of some of the Xbox Series X’s new features, Microsoft has finally announced the full specifications for the console as well as some tech demonstrations.
As first announced on Xbox Wire, the next-gen console will feature one terabyte of internal storage, a performance target of 4K at 60 frames per second and more which can be seen in the table below.
Tech demos and Controller
As previously reported the console will come with new features such as the ability to resume multiple suspended games. This technology will allow players to switch between titles in a suspended state without waiting through long loading screens. It’s also possible that this technology will work in the same way with apps such as Netflix and Microsoft Edge.
Examples for loading times for the console have also been revealed, but only with a backwards compatible title. The comparison shows that the new console is able to load State of Decay 2 in 8 seconds as opposed to 50 seconds on the Xbox One X. The console will also offer expandable storage via a unique slot to be used with console specific memory cards. So far these have been announced to come in sizes of one terabyte.
Lastly, the controller for the console has been revealed, with an updated design from the previous Xbox generation. The controller has been designed to fit a wider range of hand sizes with its more rounded features. Adding to this is a new design for the D-pad with a facet dish that allows for easier diagonal selection.
The Xbox Series X will launch this holiday with launch titles including Halo Infinite and Game Pass support.
