Microsoft's next gaming console is officially named Xbox Series X

Xbox Series X is set to come first to rival with Sony PlayStation 5 in 2020.

Microsoft introduced its Project Scarlett at Xbox E3 earlier this year and finally revealed its next gaming console that is officially named Xbox Series X at The Game Awards 2019.

Microsoft has redesigned the Xbox Series X and the console itself looks even more like a cuboid PC tower rather than what we've seen from the previous console. The console is designed to be easily used in both vertical and horizontal placement. Microsoft used the Xbox Series X to showcase Hellblade 2, a new game from Ninja Theory that is being developed and it will be the first exclusive game on this new console.


The official said the Xbox Series X would be the fastest and most powerful gaming console for Microsoft. This new console sets a new performance, speed, and compatibility standard, allowing thousands of games to be backward compatible and generates four times the Xbox One X's processing power. The Xbox Series X itself will include a custom CPU based on the AMD Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture. Microsoft also uses an NVMe SSD Xbox Series X that promises to increase load times. Even more, it also supports 8K gaming, frame rates up to 120 fps, ray tracing, and variable refresh rate support.

The Xbox Series X also supports Automatic Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and Dynamic Delay Input (DLI), which will make the Series X the fastest responsive host ever. Phil Spencer said that the Series X is for the cloud designed for the future, which will combine hardware and software to bring great games to consoles and beyond as easily as possible.

Microsoft also released a new Xbox wireless controller. Phil Spencer explained that to fit more people, it's improved in size and shape and has a new share button to simplify screenshots and game recording as well. This updated handle is compatible with both the existing Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. It is going to be included with the Xbox Series X.
