Microsoft has recently announced the launch date and price of the Xbox Series X that many players around the world are looking forward to. Xbox Series X is priced at $ 499 and will be available on November 10th. It will be launched alongside the Xbox Series S, which as we told you earlier will cost $ 299.
If you’re in a region where Xbox All Access is available, you can also get the Xbox Series X for $ 34.99 a month for 24 months, and the Xbox Series S for $ 24.99 for 24 months, after which it’s yours.
Microsoft is pushing for Xbox All Access, and has made lots of attractive offers. Besides your home console, you can also get a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service, which includes more than 100 games from the Xbox Store, including some new games. It also includes over 100 PC games for Windows users. Moreover, you now also have access to the EA Play Membership, which includes an additional 60 single-player games by Electronic Arts. Finally, there are also over 100 cloud games available to use.
As a reminder, Microsoft has equipped the new Xbox Series X with an AMD Zen 2 processor using 7nm technology, a processor that includes eight cores with a frequency of 3.8GHz. Moreover, Microsoft has also provided the new device with the AMD RDNA 2 graphics processor, which provides 12 teraflops of processing power and 52 compute units operating at a frequency of 1.825GHz each.
The Xbox Series X also includes 16GB of RAM, 10GB of which is allocated to the graphics processor, while 2.5GB has been allocated for the operating system, and about 3.5GB for the system. There is also a 1TB NVME SSD and the option to expand storage space through 1TB cards through USB 3.2 ports on the back of the Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series X can play games in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second with the option to switch to 120 frames per second, and even at 8K in some cases. Microsoft has released two demos for very fast load times on the Xbox Series X, and the Quick Resume feature, which lets you switch from game to game. This is accomplished by saving game states to the SSD, which means you’ll be able to continue where you left off in the game after turning off the Xbox Series X for a system update or weeks after the game was last played.
The Xbox Series X will also support Ray Tracing technology for more realistic in-game lighting and shadows.
Now, Microsoft has put all of its cards on the table. Now, we just have to wait for Sony to reveal the pricing and release date for its Playstation 5.
