XBox Series X has the best specs so far along with powerful features!

While E3 might not happen this year, Microsoft is all geared up for Xbox Series X. In fact, the company has gone ahead and revealed the specs too. In a blog post, Microsoft has detailed out everything – from specs to the highly-anticipated features.

Microsoft’s Xbox Live was also down this week for the third time, since the number of people has increased post the Covid-19 pandemic. “We’re aware that some of you might be having issues with playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4,” Xbox said. “We’ll keep you posted when we have more updates!” it added.

Here are still some key takeaways from the reveal. For instance, the Xbox Series X is powered by a 3.8GHz 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and 1.825GHz RDNA 2-class GPU with 12 teraflops of power. They’re coupled with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and 1TB custom NVME SSD.

There’s also a video in which Microsoft has compared the loading times for State of Decay, both on Xbox One X vs Xbox Series X. The new Xbox manages to load the game in just 7-8 seconds compared to the Xbox One X which takes about 50-51 seconds. That’s over 500% faster loading time, wow!

According to Microsoft, this is because of enhanced memory and faster storage. Xbox Series X can almost instantly access games (up to 100GB). Another feature worth mentioning is ‘quick resume’. This will help you resume a game even after rebooting your console.
