Microsoft’s Xbox Series X represents the next generation of the game console, and it’ll (once again) the most powerful console ever made, as it packs amazing tech specs. Some of which includes, an 8-core AMD zen 2 processor running at 3.8GHz, AMD RDNA 2 graphics with 12 teraflops and 52 compute units clocked at 1.825GHz, 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, and custom PCIe 4.0 NVME 1TB Solid-State Drive (SSD).
With the hardware specifications available in the next generation, users can expect 4K graphics at 60 fps (frames per second) standard, but the Series X will be capable of up to 8K resolution at 120fps. In addition, the console will also support Ray Tracing which is a new technology that enables more realistic lighting changes dynamically inside the game.
