A leaked document has unveiled plans for Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox console, set to be released in 2028. The console is expected to utilize cutting-edge technology and cloud hybrid features to deliver immersive gaming experiences.
Although the specifications of the console are not yet confirmed, the leaked document provides a glimpse into what the next-gen Xbox might offer. The CPU is expected to be either an ARM64 or AMD Zen 6 x86 chiplet-style design, providing powerful processing capabilities. The GPU could be a custom AMD solution or AMD Navi 5, depending on Microsoft’s final decision between ARM and x86 architectures. The inclusion of advanced features such as next-gen DirectX Ray Tracing, Dynamic Global Illumination, and Micropolygon Rendering Optimization promises to deliver stunning graphics and visuals.
One interesting aspect revealed in the leaked document is Microsoft’s focus on AI and the cloud. The console is described as a “hybrid” that leverages the cloud to enhance immersion and introduce new game experiences beyond the capabilities of the hardware alone. Machine-learning silicon will be integrated into the system, enabling tasks like physics simulation, dialogue generation, and procedural content generation.
Furthermore, Microsoft plans to utilize FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution) for super-resolution and frame interpolation, contributing to improved performance and smoother framerates.
While the next-gen Xbox is still in development, with decisions regarding the CPU architecture yet to be finalized, the leaked details suggest an exciting future for gaming enthusiasts. The console aims to push the boundaries of gaming technology, providing gamers with a highly immersive and powerful gaming experience.
