In a blog post, Phil Spencer, Executive Vice President of Games at Microsoft, reveals a glimpse of the future of the Xbox Series X game console. Specifically, the CPU, a Zen-2–architecture processor, will offer four times the processing power of an Xbox One. Also, the RDNA–architecture GPU will produce 12 teraflops, will be twice as fast as the Xbox One X, and eight times faster than the original Xbox One. Microsoft also confirmed that existing Xbox games will be compatible with the new console and will benefit from better display frequencies and reduced load times, without requiring development intervention. However, publishers will be able to upgrade games previously designed specifically for the Xbox One to take full advantage of the potential of the Series X. The much-anticipated console is expected to hit the market between October and December, just in time for the holiday season. The price has not yet been announced.

Ars Technica, Kyle Orland, “The next Xbox will quadruple XB1’s CPU, octuple its GPU performance.”

Xbox Wire, Phil Spencer, “What you can expect from the next generation of gaming.”
