CES 2020 is currently underway in Las Vegas. And the Xbox Series X made a surprise appearance.
During AMD’s CES Keynote, the computer chip manufacturer unveiled a fresh new look at Microsoft’s next-generation console. New details were also revealed via an exclusive piece from The Verge’s Tom Warren. In the piece, he confirms that the console will still have two dual HDMI ports, as was with the Xbox One.
However, it was also confirmed that the console will not only have a USB-C port but two of them! Furthermore, Microsoft is continuing to use a two-pin connector as the console’s internal power source.
Microsoft confirmed in December that the Xbox One Series X would be powered by an AMD Zen 2 processor, a custom NVMe SSD, and offer ray tracing support, among other features. It will also be backward compatible with games in the Xbox’s older library. Microsoft plans to release the system this Holiday. The price is still to be announced.
*Update* In a weird turn of events, AMD admits that the Xbox Series X renders shown are fan renders and not real. More information is available below:
