It’s official, the name of the next generation of Xbox will be called Series X. The console was announced today during the Game Awards. At first glance the console itself looks much closer to a PC rather than a standard game consoles we have seen in the past. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise given the recent hints that the next generation is going to be much more powerful than those of the past.

Xbox chief, Phil Spencer promised that the Series X will “deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way.” While they have not given exact specifications yet, it seems Microsoft is starting this generation off much better than the last!

As stated above, Microsoft has not yet provided anything in regards to exact specification, but during an interview with GameSpot it was stated that the content displayed with rendered in-engine running on the Xbox Series X, in real-time! Spencer said this: “When we do the math, we’re over eight times the GPU power of the Xbox One, and two times what an Xbox One X is.”

There is no word yet on the rumors of Microsoft releasing two consoles during this next refresh cycle, but there is still plenty of time for that and we look forward to this coming generation!

It is once again time for another generation of console wars, who will come out on top? Microsoft or Sony?
