Not long ago, Microsoft revealed some information about the Xbox Series X and ever since then, it has created some curiosity among console gamers. The next generation console from Microsoft is said to be more powerful than before and it is expected to outdo the Sony PlayStation 5 in terms of performance and features. While Sony's launch is yet to happen, Microsoft has gone ahead in revealing some more information regarding the Xbox Series X.
Microsoft has been hinting at a massive performance bump over the current Xbox One X and it has finally given some figures. The Series X will use a custom design processor that's based on AMD's latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. When it comes to graphics performance, Microsoft claims up to 12 TFLOPS of GPU performance. This is almost twice than what the Xbox One X can achieve and more than eight times the original Xbox One. Microsoft says the Series X will deliver higher frame rates, larger, more sophisticated game worlds, and immersive experience unlike anything seen in console gaming.
The Xbox Series X also has a couple of special features to make the gaming performance better.
-With Variable Rate Shading (VRS), Microsoft says it can offer more stable frame rates and higher resolution, with no impact on the final image quality. The technique focuses on an individual game character or object instead of refreshing every single pixel.
-Hardware accelerated DirectX ray tracing promising more dynamic environments with better reflections.
-A new SSD storage should help with faster game load times.
-A new Quick Resume feature lets players continue multiple games from a suspended state almost instantly, returning to where the last session was left without long loading screens.
-With Dynamic Latency Input (DLI), Microsoft is optimising the latency in the player-to-console pipeline starting with the Xbox Wireless Controller. Controls are even more precise and responsive.
-Microsoft will bring in support for 120 fps gaming with the Series X.
-There will be backward compatibility with the original Xbox One games, which also include backwards-compatibility for Xbox 360 and original Xbox games. Microsoft says games will look and play better than before. The backward compatibility will also include titles in Xbox Game Pass.
