Head of Xbox Phil Spencer modified his Twitter profile photograph to what seems to be an image of the next-gen Xbox Collection X’s processor. It says ‘Challenge Scarlett’ on there, and it is marked with ‘8K’. For reference, the processor within the console’s predecessor, the Xbox One X, was marked with ‘4K’, which was that console’s goal decision.

This follows final month’s full reveal of the Xbox Collection X. It is not massively vital within the sense that we nonetheless do not know what the Xbox Collection X’s specs are, however Microsoft has already mentioned that the Xbox Collection X has 8K functionality, and that the console boasts 4 instances the processing energy of the Xbox One X. 

Microsoft has been fairly open in rolling out particulars on its new {hardware}. In early December, for instance, Spencer tweeted about already having the Xbox Series X at his house as his primary console. And then in mid-December, the console’s name and design was revealed around a year before its launch, with a splashy marketing video, the tagline ‘Power Your Dreams’, and the reveal of a major exclusive in Hellblade 2. 

Xbox has confidence

Xbox is showing confidence in its hardware with nearly a year to go until release, and it leaves plenty of room for its E3 conference this year to focus on the console’s actual specs, not to mention the other games it has in the works.

Sony’s approach towards the PS5 has been a little different so far. It had two major reveals with Wired in 2019, for example, which dug into the console’s capabilities and revealed that it uses an SSD. 

When the time comes for the big reveal, though, you can be sure it’ll be beating that drum as hard as Microsoft.

Thanks, Tom Warren of The Verge.
