Microsoft Xbox Series X review: specs and price

The Xbox Series X offers vast gains in gaming performance and features over its predecessor, the Xbox One. An 8-core 3.8 GHz processor combines with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a 1.82 GHz GPU with 52 compute units (CUs) to deliver an incredible 12 teraflops (TFLOPS) of floating-point performance.

All these numbers can be confusing, but looking at the previous generation Xbox puts things in perspective. It had an 853 MHz GPU with 12 CUs that produced just 1.31 TFLOPS of floating performance, meaning that the Xbox Series X is much more powerful in terms of graphics power. The result is higher-fidelity graphics delivered in native 4K resolution at frame rates of up to 120 fps. It also allows for ray tracing, an advanced light rendering technique that provides incredibly realistic lighting.

Aside from a boost in graphics, Microsoft has introduced impressive new features for next-gen console gamers. 3D audio lets you pinpoint sounds like never before, and Quick Resume lets you switch between different running games practically instantly. Load times are also significantly faster, thanks to the use of SSD storage. Aside from gaming, the Xbox Series X doubles as a multimedia hub, with a 4K Blu-ray drive and apps for all the major streaming services.

      Se une lo mejor del game pass con la máquina más potente, con unos mandos cómodos y sólidos, a los que (eso sí, se compra aparte) la batería les dura muchísimas horas. No te enteras de que la consola está encendida si no es por la luz blanca. El diseño es elegante y discreto. Muchos juegos además tienen una actualización de resolución gratuita, sin pagos absurdos. A los clásicos exclusivos de xbox (Forza, Flight Simulator, Halo etc) se le suma ahora la compra tanto de Zenimax como de Activision Blizzard. En definitiva es una excelente máquina de la que no me arrepiento nada.

      Performance

      1.CPU speed

      8 x 3.8GHz

      The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
      Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
      3.RAM

      16GB

      Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
      The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
      5.supports ray tracing
      Microsoft Xbox Series X
      Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.
      I/O throughput refers to the bandwidth of the internal storage. Storage that supports faster data transmission speeds results in quicker load times.
      The resolution represents the amount of pixels that make up the image. It is a key indicator of image quality, with higher resolutions providing sharper and more detailed images.
      Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.
      9.Is an NVMe SSD
      Microsoft Xbox Series X
      NVMe SSDs use the PCIe interface, which has a higher bandwidth than the SATA interface. This results in much faster read/write speeds compared to SSDs which use the SATA interface.

      General info

      Devices with an internal power supply are desirable as they don't require a large external "power brick" on the cable. It’s more aesthetically pleasing and an advantage if you have limited space.
      The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
      The amount of internal storage available on the Solid State Drive (SSD). SSDs use flash memory, which typically has better performance than HDD memory.
      5.Is region free
      Microsoft Xbox Series X
      Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
