It has been more than a year since Microsoft released the Xbox Series X/S game console. According to the usual practice, it is probably to prepare for the next phase of the mid-term update. It was previously reported that Microsoft will update the existing Xbox platform product line around 2023, and the customized SoC will be manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process. Compared with the N7 process, the transistor density of the N6 process will increase by 18%, and the same design rules, design infrastructure, SPICE simulation program and IP can be used, which can effectively reduce production and development costs. Compared with the expensive N5 process, the cost of replacing the N6 process is relatively low and simpler.
According to TweakTown
reports, Microsoft will launch the Xbox Series X Elite in 2023 to replace the existing Xbox Series X game console and release a rendering of the Xbox Series X Elite. You can see that there are two LED strips on the side of this game console. The power button on the front has the Xbox logo. There will also be a Blu-ray drive, eject button, and four USB ports. There will be multiple ports on the back of the Xbox Series X Elite, including power, Ethernet, two USB 3.1 ports and an HDMI 2.1 port. In addition, storage expansion ports will be reserved.
Since Xbox Series X Elite has higher performance and heat generation, the cooling system will be further optimized. It is understood that there will be vents on the top of the devices, and there will also be vents on the sides and back to ensure that this game console can run around the clock to meet the needs of the game enthusiasts to play games overnight.
