We found a very familiar-looking logo in January at CES in Las Vegas. The company hasn’t yet disclosed its price, but Bloomberg has predicted at $470.

The name of Xbox Series X was then announced at The Game Awards in December 2019. Microsoft broke down the 8-cores inside its semi-custom AMD Zen 2 processor, 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, and the 1TB SSD nestled inside.
