Microsoft has launched the latest Xbox Series X console during the Game Awards 2019 showing its one of a kind Xbox after Xbox One X.
The reason it caught people’s attention that its design is very different from the consoles released previously by any console manufacturer.
The Series X console is 12 inches in height, 6 inches in width and depth.
1. It is an 8K Console
As the world is shifting to 4k, Xbox is gearing up their game to get pure 8K gaming experience in their upcoming console, providing gamers the experience which they have never felt before.
2. It runs on 12 Teraflops
In recent year, Xbox One X ran on 6 teraflops and pronounced as the most powerful console, it even rated best on the Red Dead Redemption 2 benchmarks and got the title as it ran best on Xbox One X. The latest Xbox Series X runs on 12 Tera Flops, imagine the power of gaming it will add to your bucket!
Microsoft and Playstation have also announced partnership to produce games for each other so we can see many new beautiful graphics games are making their way to Xbox Series X soon.
3. It outperforms every Playstation console
It is a bitter truth, Playstation in last years has been unable to launch a console with better specifications as Xbox consoles. Even Ps4 Pro was unable to beat Xbox One X in every corner and Xbox X has proven to be the most powerful console.
If the next PS5 has the lowest specifications than Xbox’s series X console than the sales of PS5 will see a decline as Xbox will be getting all the leads from the gamers.
4. Series X has exclusive games
During the Game Awards 2019, the management of Microsoft also announced the latest games that will be coming with Series X console.
Xbox Series X exclusive games;
- Halo Infinite
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
- Watch Dogs Legion
- Gods & Monsters
- Battlefield 6
- Forza Horizon 5
- Forza Motosport 8
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice 2
There is also a good list of games coming in 2020.
5. Xbox Series X Specification is making it more powerful console
The specifications of this product are seriously impressive and gamers are drolling over this product and can’t wait to get their hands on it.
Here are the Xbox Series X Specifications;
|Processor||AMD Zen 2(8x @ 3.6 GHz)|
|Graphics||AMD GPU (12 TF RDNA)|
|Memory||16GB GDDR6 RAM|
|Optical Drive||4K Blu-Ray|
|Video Output||8K and 4K @ 120Hz|
6. It is considered to be even more powerful than a PC
Microsoft have been trying their level best to give PC gaming experience to console gamers as most of the consoles released before were not able to reach 120 FPS as Xbox One X was locked at 60 FPS and PS4 Pro was locked at around 50 FPS and PS4 and Xbox One S and One were able to reach 30 FPS.
Comparing these FPS to an average gaming PC that was reaching 80 FPS easily was making console gaming less smooth.
Xbox decided to give “Much better experience than PC gaming” by locking Series X at 120 FPS. You can even connect Razor Mouse and Keyboard to it if you don’t want to play games through the console.
7. It will never heat up
Xbox 360 heated up like hell, but Xbox through the years has solved this problem by launching new and enhanced consoles, Xbox gamers praised Microsoft management as the new Xbox One S, Xbox One X was not heating even after 6 hours of gaming.
And now Xbox is promising Xbox Series X won’t heat up even if you do gaming for straight two days! That’s a lot to offer, right?
8. It runs on 120 FPS
From a graphical perspective, Series X is a way to go as it is able to run games at 120 FPS with a higher refresh rate for the support of 8K. If your output is 8K, you will be able to get 120 FPS easily but if you’re running it on 4K you will get 60 FPS.
Comparing it with the previous Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, both the consoles were able to get 60 FPS but with Series X, they’re nothing when it compares to 120 FPS.
9. Xbox Series X will come with backward compatibility
I will be able to play games of previous Xbox consoles, but those games will be enhanced for Series X to be playable on this console. But, these games won’t be immediately available on this console right after its release but will be available for download after a few months.
10. You will be able to run Project xCloud on Series X console
You heard it right! You will no longer have to wait until your 100 GB game downloads, just play it right from the console and enjoy the seamless gaming experience. It is advised to have a minimum of 35 MBPS internet connection while 100 MBPS is recommended to play games on Project xCloud.
Xbox made sure their new console gives easiness to the gamers so that they can jump in the game without wasting their hours waiting for their game to download.

Can you connect Xbox One controllers with Series X console?
Yes, like games, Microsoft has indicated that all Xbox One accessories will be compatible with Series X. First of all, this means that the Xbox One controllers – and in particular the Elite Serie 2 controller – will be compatible.
Xbox Series X vs PS5 – Which is more powerful?
