The Xbox Series X is all about the gaming ecosystem, not the black box
Microsoft’s Xbox Series X is shaping up to be one very impressive console. Despite being clad in a rather minimal monolithic chassis, there’s a lot of clever engineering to ensure that the next-generation console can kick out superior power to Sony’s PS5 — 12 teraflops compared to 10.28 teraflops – yet keep cool.
And with ray-tracing support, dedicated audio hardware, and easily expandable storage, the Xbox Series X is offering a lot for what could be a $400 console that potentially undercuts the PS5. And in the long-term, that doesn’t matter.
