All you need to know about the Series X
When it’s a predecessor, the series X enters a scene that looks very different. Technically, it’s quite competing when compared to other game consoles, and it’s a sibling to the upcoming Series S and the forthcoming Sony PS5.
The console is said to based around AMD’s current-generation Zen 2 processor architecture. It is also most likely to feature a graphics processor using AMD’s forthcoming RDNA 2 microarchitecture. Performance is a thing where things start getting tricky.
