There is less than 0% chance they're doing an event at a location outside of the Microsoft Campus for like, 2 years.

So we will need to buy the Dolby Atmos license on the xbox digital store for Dolvy Atmos to work? I've got bo problem with that, it's just sort of a new process to me. Anyone else buying the Steelseries Arctis 9x for Dolby atmos?

There's no getting around it: Series X is a fundamental game-changer in terms of console power, and Gears 5's buttery smooth 120fps toggle has me instantly excited at the prospect of other console-game developers following suit.

When it comes to load times, the Series X version of Gears 5 handily beat out even a high-end PC equipped with an NVMe 3.0 drive (which stored both the Windows OS and the game). After testing a variety of Gears 5 campaign save files, I found a 75 percent improvement for the console version; 53-second loads on my PC were as short as 12 seconds on my Xbox Series X for identical content.

In case you skimmed over that paragraph: That's not comparing Series X load times to older consoles. That's comparing Series X load times to a top-of-the-line PC.

As a computing device, Xbox Series X may go down in history as one of the most remarkable machines ever made—as compared to other products in its era, power level, and price"

Hey Bernkastel Bernkastel -- Since you did such an amazing job in making this OT, would you consider making a Series X review OT in the near future since YTers and influencers are now giving their reviews and final thoughts of the world's most powerful console?

1080p?




Seriously, how much RAM space are they saving from those 1080p icons and a wallpaper? They need to turn it up to 4K, there's no excuse.
These prototype units are using an old UI. However, since the One X interface is 1080p, I'm not letting MS off the hook. They better fix this. There's no excuse. None. Even the One S should be able to do the UI in 4K.

So it's CF Express and a 2230 m.2 size. The chip included has a max throughput of 3.75gbps read and write. They advertise 2.4gbps because that is what it will run at on average due to thermal throttling that all SSD's suffer from. Jeff Grubb took one apart and the part number is the Phison 3.75gbps chip. Should mean that the SSD on the main board is replaceable and not soldered on.
