Microsoft have revealed full hardware specs of their upcoming next-gen console Xbox Series X. The console will feature 8 core CPU, 12 TFLOPS GPU, 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB NVME SSD among other things. The performance target is 4K at 60 FPS.

Microsoft have officially revealed the full and final hardware specifications for Xbox Series X. As expected, we are looking at the fastest gaming console of all time with some impressive hardware. As previously revealed, Xbox Series X is powered by AMD's CPU and GPU. 

Microsoft confirm that the CPU is a custom Zen 2, 8-core chip that will run at 3.8 GHz or 3.66 GHz with simultaneous multithreading enabled. The GPU packs 12 TFLOPS (teraflops) and 52 CUs (compute units). It runs at 1.825 GHz custom RDNA 2 chip. 

As for the memory, Xbox Series X comes with 16 GB of GDDR6 RAM. The storage is another interesting part. Microsoft opted for a custom-build NVME SSD, one of the fastest storage options you can get at the moment. The drive's size is 1 TB but the storage can be expanded with a 1 TB Expansion Card which matches internal storage exactly, Microsoft say.
