Xbox Series X Review

The Xbox Series X is set for release in December 2020. Everybody, including gamers who play Vulkan Vegas online, is dying to see what Microsoft has to bring to the table, and how it will fare against its rival, the PlayStation 5. We’ll walk you through everything we know about the new console so far.

The new Xbox is definitely going to be more powerful than its predecessors. While still in development, we know that the console can run discs and it can also run games from old Xbox consoles, which the PlayStation could not do.


Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox team, said that the Xbox Series X is going to be the most powerful that has ever been built—he further mentioned that it is going to be the fastest there ever was. The team is confident that the new console will set a new bar of high in the gaming industry.

All in all, we know that this new device is going to be four times more powerful than its predecessor. Here are the specs of the Xbox Series X:

  • Processor – will use the Navi processor manufactured by AMD. This is a custom-designed processor only found on Xbox machines.
  • Memory – the box is equipped with GDDR6 RAM. It is the latest in-memory technology, which means that the console can hold more information temporarily and give your faster performance.
  • Optical drive – like the PS5, the new Xbox has an optical drive that can read gaming discs and Blu-ray discs like movies.

It also uses SSD instead of HDD, which means that the storage device no longer uses memory platters. Now, it uses chips and we can expect it to last longer. In terms, of visuals, the Xbox X can produce 8K visuals—much better than the 4K that is being touted regularly in other devices. This device is so fast that it can render 120 frames per second.

The Project xCloud

One of the key components that this new console is preparing for is Project xCloud. This is still in development, but it planned to work alongside the new console.

The Xbox Team wants players in the near future to be able to play anywhere and on any device—it is like streaming a movie on Netflix, but these are games instead of movies. This software is in testing mode and players can participate in the dry-runs.

The Project xCloud allows you to play on your mobile phone through the Xbox engine. For as long as you are online, you can access your favorite games and play with anyone in the world.

The Design

It seems like there is a new trend in the gaming industry—the console stands vertically as opposed to the previous generations where the devices were horizontal.

The console and its controllers are pure black. It looks like a PC tower, and it is a perfect rectangle with no curves. On the side is the slot for the Blu-ray, and the bottom of the console houses the slots for the USB. If you do not like black, it also comes in a combination of white and grey.

This should not be a problem since the console can be positioned vertically or horizontally. Those who have entertainment systems that have a provision for horizontal set-up should be fine.


This console is not exclusive to newly developed games. It can play games from the original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox 1. It is also compatible to work with all your Xbox One accessories, so you no longer have to buy new ones.

Even its new controller, the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2, is compatible with old consoles. If you are a registered gamer in the Xbox world, all your achievements and gaming records will be carried over to the new console.


This is a widely anticipated consoles this year. Players are definitely going to be torn apart between the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. Which of the two consoles will reign supreme? Only time will tell.

The first game launched in the series is Halo infinite. All who purchase the new console will automatically have access to this game. We are not sure if the game is given away as a disc or as an accessible game online.

This is not to say that there are no other games available. There are many developers who are working on games for this new platform. However, the Head of Xbox dd did not want to speak on their behalf.
