    I think you're confused.

    Zen 2 is Ryzen 3000, Zen 3 is Ryzen 4000. This is a Zen 2 SoC, AKA Ryzen 3000 based. Ryzen went Zen (1000 series), Zen+ (2000 series), Zen 2 (3000 series) Zen 3 (4000 series).

    Sure, Zen 3 is probably going to be better than Zen 2, it's not going to be a massive difference that would make this "outdated" in any sense.

    Ah, I was unaware of AMD's fucky naming scheme. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Sounds like a beast and I'm glad we're finally getting a technical leap forward in terms of raw computing power. CPU's have been a limiting factor in game design for so long.

    The proprietary expandable storage situation is going to be interesting in regards to costs. 1TB isn't going to go far (with a lot of recent games creeping into the 100GB range), so expansion will be essential for most users.

    What we shouldn't forget however, is that the XBOX Series X is the "Pro" model and it's price will reflect that. I can't see the cheaper base/standard system having specs anywhere close to this.

    Also, the GPU. If I'm not mistaken, it seems to be at least on par with the 2080 Super.
    This was posted while I was writing this, and accurately reflects the consequence of having the GPU power of a 2080 Super.

    While the specs in this thing are goddamn beastly compared to the One X, I'll probably hold out until they announce the cheaper Series S (if that's even what it's going to be called.) This just seems like it's going to be far too expensive for what I can afford

    I really hope the next-gen optimization, and free upgrades for re-releases, becomes a standard thing. One of my biggest gripes about the current generation is how much I've spent on game remakes for last gen games. There's a lot to love about the Series X, but that's by far my favorite.

    I really can't see this proprietary expansion being the only extra storage option long-term. I really expect them to support USB 3.0 drives, with maybe an extra note about loading times being slower or something.

    So according to the specs its GPU will have almost 90% of the raw power of an RTX 2080 ti.

    Considering the Xbox One X's touted "6 TFlops" amounted to about GTX 1060 performance in real world usage , I wouldn't put much stock on it.

    It kind of reminds me of a UPS. Sturdy bastards they are.
    Hope it does well.

    Those specs are beastly! I hope they provide some real competition for Sony this time.

    I really hope this means we can start getting information about the games coming out for it now. Right now, we only know about one (That I can think of). This console is going to have to have a solid launch line up if it wants to compete with the PS5 and it would be a real shame for MS to put all of their effort into the hardware to forget about the software. Even games that are crossgen that look significantly better/have exclusive content on the Xbox SX would be nice sell for me (etc The RTX Minecraft tech demo they have). Also I REALLY hope they aren't planning on reusing the Xbox One layout like they did in Austin Evan's video.

    The reason why the Xbox One X couldn't fully utilise its GPU was the fact that it was severely bottlenecked by its mobile-grade Jaguar CPU. This is no longer the case - the Series X runs on desktop-grade Zen 2.

    This is the first time that I comment a news, but OMG this is awesome!
    I think that I'll preorder one as soon as it will be possile.

    No kids on xbox live. I'm not able to play on PSN without getting mad at all those toxic kids.
    EDIT: also gamepass!

    This is something that I hear almost everytime we speak of consoles. Am I the only one that doesn't care about exclusives? :/
    I mean, what I'm looking for in a console, is to play some fun games on my chouch after a long working day, with a couple of beers :P

    If I had to choose between Series X and PS5 I will stick to Xbox. Microsoft been so good to me with Gamepass and Gold. Sony had lacked really hard in those area.

    But I'm skipping the next gen for a few years maybe 3 I have too much backlog from prior generations to play.
