The entry-level next-generation console from Microsoft, the Xbox Series S, was leaked earlier with the design and the estimated launch price of $299 by BWW Media Group Brad Sams and was confirmed by Senior video game analyst at Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad.
More information on the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X has been leaked via sources who spoke with Windows Central.
The Xbox Series S will be priced at $299 at retail, while the Xbox Series X will launch at $499. The two consoles will have a monthly financial plan called Xbox All Access as well that will be pushed by retailers worldwide. The Xbox Series S will be $25 per month via Xbox All Access and the Xbox Series X will be $35 per month.
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will both launch on November 10, 2020, according to the sources.
The Xbox Series X and PS5 are set to release with the most advanced processors ever to power a home console, putting them on par with some modern gaming PCs. While there are rumors of new incoming graphics cards that’ll blow even those out of the water, one lesser-known chip maker has already done it.https://www.ign.com/articles/monster-cpu-is-100000-times-more-powerful-than-the-xbox-series-x
Meet the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine Generation 2, an absolutely massive, dinner plate-sized processor featuring 850,000 cores and 2.6 trillion transistors. While this gargantuan CPU, which is designed for supercomputers, might seem completely unrelated to the upcoming consoles, the chip here and the ones powering the next Xbox and PlayStation were all made by TSMC using the same 7nm process – so in a way, they’re all siblings.
The major difference with the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine Generation 2 is, of course, it’s just much, much larger. In fact, compared to Xbox Series X's 8 cores and 15.4 billion transistors, Cerebras’ chip has 849,992 more cores and 2,598,460,000,000 more transistors. The PS5 and its 8-core processor is similarly outclassed.
To produce anywhere near the same level of processing power, you would need somewhere in the ballpark of 106,250 next-gen consoles. I hope your wallet is ready.
