Phil Spencer took the stage during The Game Awards 2019 to unveil Microsoft’s next-gen console, the Xbox Series X. Surprisingly, it looks nothing like a traditional game system: instead of a flat, low-profile box, the designers have crafted something that could easily be mistaken for a Mini-ITX/Micro-ATX tower. This is Microsoft’s most powerful console ever, one that can provide “world-class visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability.”

We are minimizing latency by leveraging technology such as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and giving developers new functionality like Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) to make Xbox Series X the most responsive console ever. Xbox Series X is also designed for a future in the cloud, with unique capabilities built into the hardware and software to make it as easy as possible to bring great games to both console and elsewhere. Xbox Series X will deliver a level of fidelity and immersion unlike anything that’s been achieved in previous console generations.
