Xbox Series X is the next-generation console from Microsoft, and it’s awaited breathlessly by the fans. However, they have all the reasons to behave like this: Xbox Series X is expected to be a huge upgrade for the previous Xbox One in terms of sheer performance. Virtual Reality support, no loading screens for games, and 8K graphics are among the stunning features that the new Xbox console might have.
But probably the most significant upgrade is that the SSD drive from Xbox Series X will be 36 times faster than the Xbox One hard drivers, according to a recent emerging report. The upcoming console will be featuring a PS5019-E19 Master SSD storage, which means a DRAM-less PCIe 4.0 M.2 storage device.
2TB of storage capacity for the flash memory controller
Xbox One hard drivers are rotating at a speed of 5400 RPM, so you can imagine how much faster the new storage will be. The E19 Master will be using PCIe 4.0 across 4x lanes. Of course, some people would say that you don’t need such high speeds for a gaming console. But who knows how realistic and demanding games will become in the near future? Therefore, you don’t know when it comes in handy a powerful gaming rig.
Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5?
This is currently the ultimate question regarding the gaming industry. Two of the world’s best gaming console manufacturers, Sony and Microsoft, will compete near the end of the year for supremacy. Xbox Series X brings the above-mentioned features and more, while PS5 comes with haptic controllers, a virtual assistant, fast SSDs, and much more. While it’s impossible to decide now which one of the two consoles will be better, one thing’s for sure: they will both bring features never seen before on gaming machines.
Both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will be launched during Holiday 2020, so you better make sure that you already prepared your letter to Santa Claus until then.
