Xbox Series X chipset surfaced
Phil Spencer, the semi-exclusive chip of the next-generation Xbox Series X console, which will use AMD’s most powerful Navi architecture, was shared in his social media account.
Chipset of the next generation of Xbox and PS consoles has been one of the most popular topics in recent years. AMD’s new semi-specific chips, developed in collaboration with manufacturers, will take the performance bar to the forefront and make 8K resolutions possible.
The most powerful chip
Phil Spencer, head of the Microsoft Xbox division, placed a semi-exclusive chip on the Xbox Series X console in his social media profile. This is the official AMD chipset. The chip, which has a pink-orange color, is produced by TSMC’s 7nm EUV process.
The special chip, which will consist of 7nm Zen 2 cores and the Navi 2x graphics unit with the next generation RDNA architecture, is expected to produce 10-12 TFLOPS performance. The Xbox One X console worked at the level of 6 TFLOPS.
The most important feature of the new chip is that it will offer hardware-based beam tracking technology. Beam tracking technology, which AMD still does not offer to gamers, will come to console players in the first place. It is estimated that there are beam tracking cores in the chip. In addition, dynamic resolution adjustment and variable shading techniques to reach 8K resolution is expressed.
There is no information about the size of the chip, but it is stated that users who measure on social media have found a measure between 360-390 square millimeters. The Xbox One X chip was about the same size, but with a 7nm production process, a performance increase of around 50 percent will be achieved.
