Xbox Series X is powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging AMD's latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The new system on a chip (SOC) has been built from the ground up for speed and performance, with 12 teraflops of processing power and with compatibility in mind for four generations of games.
Re-engineered inside out
Xbox Series X ushers in a new generation of console gaming, where hardware and software innovations enable the amazing possibilities for the future of games.
Designed for speed and performance
The Xbox Velocity Architecture unlocks new speed and performance capabilities through the groundbreaking combination of hardware, a custom 1TB SSD and CPU, and deep software integration, making for richer and more dynamic living worlds unlike anything ever seen before.
Innovative parallel cooling architecture allows for stunning game experiences with incredible graphical fidelity and performance. Three primary channels for parallel air flow divide the heat load across multiple air streams to better manage the internal temperature of the console's subsystems, including the split motherboard and heat sink chassis.
For the first time ever on console, a groundbreaking split motherboard keeps the Xbox Series X internals evenly temperature-controlled, allowing for the console to output more power.
Heat sink chassis
A heat sink is a non-electronic, passive mechanical component that has a vital role in the reliability and performance of the Xbox Series X and is integrated directly into the chassis of the console. This unique component of the parallel cooling architecture helps lend to the distinctive design of the console.
The vapor chamber in the Xbox Series X enables evenly spread temperatures with the core and memory.
More storage without compromise
The Xbox Series X storage expansion card provides additional room for games at peak speed and performance by replicating the console's internal custom SSD experience. The 1TB card inserts directly into the back of the console via the dedicated storage expansion port.
Games play even better
Through the revolutionary new Xbox Velocity Architecture, thousands of games on Xbox One, including Xbox 360 and original Xbox Games, will experience improvements in performance, including improved boot and load times, more stable frame rates, higher resolutions, and improved quality.
