Xbox Has Confirmed That the Series X Can Stand up or Lie Down
Although Xbox only displayed the Series X standing vertically during the unveil of the console at The Game Awards, they’ve also confirmed that it can lay down horizontally as well. Since the reveal of the console, the likeness has been compared to PC towers, routers and fridges but it will apparently be more flexible in how it’s stored. The top of the console includes essential ventilation so gamers shouldn’t be blocking that part of the console unless they want it to overheat. The Xbox Series X will release in Holiday 2020 and so far will feature Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga and Halo Infinite.
While the ventilation of the console is featured atop the box, the Xbox Series X is powered by a custom processor which leverages the latest Zen 2 and next-gen RDNA architecture from AMD. The console will apparently deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing with a groundbreaking level of performance. Variable Rate Shading technology will also allow developers to get more out of the Xbox Series X GPU and the SSD will essentially eliminate load times and bring gamers into the game faster than anything offered this generation just like the PS5’s SSD.
Apparently the internal components of the Xbox Series X will require significant cooling with the ventilation as the console produces 4K visuals at 60FPS, with the possibility of up to 120FPS. The console will also include support for Variable Refresh Rate and can apparently push 8K visuals. Latency will be reduced using Auto Low Latency Mode and Dynamic Latency Input which will ensure buttons are registered the split second gamers press them.
