And those specs also come with the comforting line in the Xbox Wire blog post that "when it is released this holiday season, Xbox Series X will set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility". The comforting part isn't performance, speed and compatibility, rather that Microsoft still plans on delivering their new behemoth this year, and given the current shut down climate across myriad industries, that's just heartening news.

There's a bit more to unpack with the information dropped today, but to kick things off, here's the official specs surrounding Xbox Series X's innards:
  • CPU: 8x Cores @ 3.8 GHz (3.6 GHz w/ SMT) Custom Zen 2 CPU
  • GPU: 12 TFLOPS, 52 CUs @ 1.825 GHz Custom RDNA 2 GPU
  • Die Size: 360.45 mm2
  • Process: 7nm Enhanced
  • Memory: 16 GB GDDR6 w/ 320b bus
  • Memory Bandwidth: 10GB @ 560 GB/s, 6GB @ 336 GB/s
  • Internal Storage: 1 TB Custom NVME SSD
  • I/O Throughput: 2.4 GB/s (Raw), 4.8 GB/s (Compressed, with custom hardware decompression block)
  • Expandable Storage: 1 TB Expansion Card (matches internal storage exactly)
  • External Storage: USB 3.2 External HDD Support
  • Optical Drive: 4K UHD Blu-Ray Drive
  • Performance Target: 4K @ 60 FPS, Up to 120 FPS
  • One of the bigger takeaways is that Series X supports DirectX Raytracing, something we've delved into a lot here, which will soon become the norm for high-end gaming and design (though Nintendo could be classically late to that party). The gurus over at Digital Foundry have a lot more to say on all of the above.

    But stay tuned as we'll have more ourselves.
