The next Microsoft Xbox will quadruple the power of the original Xbox One according to new details released by the company.
In a statement on Monday, Xbox chief Phil Spencer announced that the upcoming console, called the Series X, will have 12 teraflop GPU performance, twice as powerful as the latest Xbox One X and four times more powerful than the specifications of the original Xbox One.
As noted by The edge, the improvement surpasses the mid-segment graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD and offers the first look at what kind of power the next generation of consoles have in store.
Microsoft has released a few new details of the Xbox Series X that is eight times more powerful than the Xbox One
In addition, Xbox said the console will have its own patented version of Variable Rate Shading (VRS), a type of technology that chooses where processing power is assigned when displaying an image.
“Our patented form of VRS allows developers to use the full power of the Xbox Series X more efficiently. Instead of giving GPU cycles uniformly to every pixel on the screen, they can give priority to individual effects on specific game characters or important environment objects, “Xbox wrote in a statement.
“This technique results in more stable image speeds and higher resolution, without impact on the final image quality.”
Microsoft has also said before that the Series X games runs at 4K resolution with the ability to use an 8K resolution with frame rates of up to 120 frames per second.
Although Xbox is advancing with hardware improvements, it will continue to work on its existing legacy of backward compatibility games.
In a statement, the tech giant said it will retain the ability to play games up to the original Xbox on the Series X.
“Our commitment to compatibility means that existing Xbox One games, including backwards compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, look and play better than ever before,” the company wrote.
‘Your favorite games, including titles in Xbox Game Pass, benefit from more stable frame rates, faster loading times and improved resolution and visual reliability – all without developer work. Your Xbox One gaming accessories also come to the fore. ”
The new console is expected to compete with the upcoming PlayStation 5 from Sony, which did not yet have an official release date.
Both consoles are expected to be released later this year. The Series X is launched with the latest installment of the Halo franchise, Halo infinite.
