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:
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.
