Microsoft revealed its Xbox Series X console last month; however, the firm surprisingly didn’t exhibit the rear of the system. For a couple of hours in the present day, we thought that had modified throughout AMD’s CES 2020 keynote; the chipmaker revealed what gave the impression to be the rear of the Xbox Series X briefly, displaying off all of its supposed ports.
However, whereas it initially regarded just like the Xbox Series X would come with two USB-C ports and two HDMI ports, AMD has simply admitted it really used a fake render throughout its presentation. “The Xbox Series X imagery used throughout the AMD CES press convention was not sourced from Microsoft and didn’t precisely characterize the design or options of the upcoming console,” explains an AMD spokesperson in an announcement to The Verge. “They have been taken from TurboSquid.com.”
TurboSquid offers 3D fashions, and it seems that somebody at AMD used one of many many renders accessible of the Xbox Series X on the positioning. One, in particular, consists of the identical rear ports present in AMD’s presentation. It’s an embarrassing mistake for AMD to make, particularly when Microsoft purposefully didn’t reveal the rear ports throughout its unveil video last month. Microsoft will probably be together with a daily USB-A port on the entrance of the Xbox Series X, although.
The Xbox Series X will embrace a customized-designed CPU based on AMD’s Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA structure. Microsoft can also be utilizing an NVMe SSD on Xbox Series X, which guarantees to boost load occasions. Xbox Series X may also assist 8K gaming, body charges of as much as 120 fps in video games, ray tracing, and variable refresh fee assist. Microsoft is planning to ship the Xbox Series X “vacation 2020.”
AMD’s rear ports mistake comes simply hours after Xbox chief Phil Spencer revealed the Xbox Series X APU on Twitter. Spencer modified his display image to a chip of Project Scarlett, the codename for the Xbox Series X. The chip itself doesn’t reveal far more than we already know concerning the Series X; however, it consists of an 8K stamp which suggests Microsoft will goal this decision in some unspecified time in the future with its next-gen console.
