Let’s Unbox Xbox Series 

So, let’s dive into unboxing Xbox Series X, when you will unbox it, you will find Halo Infinite display on the back of it. I would like to remind you quickly that the biggest game that was supposed to be here for the launch day will not be playable for a while. So, the front displays the logo for the console and is branded with a super-cool black and green color scheme that makes You think about Xbox. Well, to be honest, it’s a beautiful and coolest box.

Once you open the box, you are been greeted with the console, which is larger than everyone was expecting! The design is simple, sleek, and looks excellent. Well, you get one controller so if you want to play with someone else then you need to buy an Xbox Series X controller to play with friends.

So, after reviewing the whole package, you will need to get the console working, so an HDMI cable that is of decent length and a plug that connects into the back of the Series X. Everything apart from the console can be found in a black compartment inside the box at the back. Overall, there are no major surprises when you get your hands on the Xbox Series. It’s a super-cool machine which comes ina fancy box and you can get started with next-generation gaming. So, what are you waiting for?

HDMI 2.1

The Series X comes with an HDMI 2.1 cable in the box, and this enables some extra features on newer or gaming-specific TVs. HDMI 2.1 unlocks gaming at 4K 120Hz, which ultimately cuts the frame-transmission time from the console to the screen in half, and takes benefit of variable new rates on supported TVs. The Series X can also automatically set your TV to Game Mode, or low-latency mode, every time you try to load a game.

What are the Xbox Series X’s specs?

The console is based around AMD’s current-generation Zen 2 processor architecture and a graphics processor using AMD’s forthcoming RDNA 2 microarchitecture, so presumably built on the Navi 7-nanometer process. 

The system’s Control Processing Unit is an eight-core custom Zen 2 processor operating at 3.8GHz (3.66GHz with simultaneous multithreading). Xbox’s GPU is a custom RDNA 2 processor at 1.825GHz with 52 CUs that will produce 12 teraflops. This puts Microsoft’s new console among some of the higher-end gaming PCs

Does Xbox Series X come with a new controller, too?

Yup, though it is not as radically redesigned as the console, and it will be backward-compatible with older models. Xbox Series X is based on the current Xbox Elite Wireless model but has a reworked D-pad and a share button. Microsoft has also done some work on reducing the wireless lag and therefore, it increases the responsiveness between the display and the controller with what it calls dynamic latency input.

More desirable titles confirmed for the console include:

Xbox Game Pass will continue to be the important vault subscription option for the console. The Series X also comes with Xbox Console Streaming, now called Remote Play, a feature that lets you play Xbox games on your phone that is running on your console.

You’ll also be able to hand off games now from the console to PC or mobile device through what was formerly called Project xCloud integration. (The service, just started as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate but still recognized in beta and lets you play Game Pass games on your phone or tablet that are running on remote  Xboxes rather than on your local console.

The hardware of Xbox Series X :

Many of you must be not knowing that when Microsoft’s Xbox team started to work on the successor to the Xbox One consoles around 2016, they had already envisioned the need to have two console versions which are similar to their Xbox One X and Xbox One S models to meet the needs of various markets.

By developing both units in concert, they would be able to make sure games developed would be able to be played on both systems without exception. Which has been a tradition with past Xbox projects, the consoles were given code names based on cities. The Xbox Series S was named Project Lockhart, based on the city of Lockhart, Texas, which Alan Greenberg said was known as “the little city with the big heart”.
