Xbox has announced that the Xbox Series X will come with an AMD RDNA 2 GPU capable of processing power up to 12 TFLOPs - only a little slower than Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at maximum boost clock, in theory. This will include a new Xbox share button, which will be found in the middle of the Xbox Series X controller. By the time they launch, it will have been roughly seven years since the release of their predecessors.

The game is now only releasing on PS4, though as a timed exclusive we expect it to hit the Xbox One and PC some time next year.

Here are the games that have been officially confirmed for the next generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft. Microsoft says Smart Delivery will be featured on all exclusive Xbox Game Studio games such as Halo Infinite, but it will also be an optional feature available to third-party developers if they want. The game doesn't yet have a release date.

With a high-end GPU, x86 cores on par with the best CPUs for gaming, an SSD, variable refresh rate (VRR), DirectX Raytracing, and 120fps support, the Xbox Series X is looking more PC-like than ever before. It will also introduce "new frontiers" of games that will feature cross overs with education, fashion, arts and other industries. We are thinking about the next generation, but for now, we are focused on the current generation.

There's still a few details left to confirm for Series X, not least of which is the price. When you trigger the install, the appropriate version of the game will be downloaded to your hard drive or SSD.

One of the most awaited game, the role-playing Cyberpunk is scheduled to release on 16 April 2020.

Among the deaths, 149 were in Hubei Province and one in Hainan Province , according to the National Health Commission. Infections have been reported as far away as Italy, where 150 cases have been found.

Gamers will also be able to use their Xbox One accessories, Microsoft said, and Xbox Game Pass will be compatible with the Series X.

Compared to the previous generation, Xbox Series X represents a superior balance of power and speed in console design, advancing on all technological fronts to delivering unbelievable, dynamic, living worlds and minimize any aspects that can take you out of the experience.

120 fps Support: With support for up to 120 fps, Xbox Series X allows developers to exceed standard 60 fps output in favor of heightened realism or fast-paced action.

While Xbox plows ahead with hardware improvements, it will work to preserve its standing legacy of games with backwards compatibility.
