Microsoft is saying that the Xbox Series X will be the most powerful Xbox ever and now they have released details of what is inside the box.

“While the Xbox Series X will deliver a massive increase in GPU performance and continue to redefine and advance the state of art in graphics with new capabilities such as hardware-accelerated raytracing,” said Jason Ronald, Director of Product Management on Xbox Series X, “we don’t believe this generation will be defined by graphics or resolution alone.”

It will have 16GB of RAM, 1 TB of internal storage, and a full 12 Teraflops….of….whatever that is. The custom-designed processor is powered by an 8 core AMD Zen 2 CPU and an RDNA 2-class GPU.

“Xbox Series X is the biggest generational leap of SOC [System on a Chip] and API design that we’ve done with Microsoft, and it’s really an honour for AMD to be a trusted Microsoft partner for this endeavor,” said Sebastien Nussbaum, Corporate Vice President & Senior Fellow, Semi-Custom Products and Technologies​ at AMD. “The Xbox Series X is going to be a beacon of technical innovation leadership for this console generation and will propagate the innovation throughout the DirectX ecosystem this year and into next year.”

It will also support hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing, which simulates the properties of light and sound in real-time more accurately than any technology before it.
