At the Game Awards 2019, Xbox shocked the world by revealing its next-generation console form factor and name, the Xbox Series X. At the time, Xbox would only give rough indicators of technical specifications, stating it had "twice the power" of the 6 teraflop Xbox One X. We don't have to wonder about the exact power any longer though. In a new post, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer confirmed that the Xbox Series X features 12 teraflops of computing power.
Phil's new post goes on to confirm that the Xbox Series X uses RDNA 2 hardware, with hardware-accelerated DirectX ray-tracing support. The specs revealed by Phil Spencer also confirm a feature called Smart Delivery. Smart Delivery means that cross-generation games are going to work just like Xbox One X patches. You'll only buy one copy of Halo Infinite and then you can play it on Xbox One or on Xbox Series X, there will be no separate charges. Other previously mentioned features, such as Quick Resume, are also still included in the lengthy technical details.
Windows Central's Senior Xbox Editor, Jez Corden, previously leaked these specs for the Xbox Series X, which was known as Anaconda at the time. The sources Jez reported on were indeed completely accurate and this new information matches the previous report. Xbox Series X is currently scheduled to release sometime in Holiday 2020.
