With the Xbox Series X, Microsoft is preparing to release its next-gen console. The launch is planned for the end of this year. The manufacturer already presented specific details for the Game Awards 2019 in December – together with controller information and impressions of the design of the new Xbox. The chip manufacturer AMD is responsible for the processors. At his CES press conference, he showed an animation of the Xbox Series X – and with it the back of the console. Spectators could thus get an impression of the supposed connections. However, AMD did not use an official Microsoft render for the presentation.
Microsoft is preparing the Xbox Series X Before: The new console should come on the market in late 2020. The company already presented specific details for the Game Awards in December 2019. So fans not only got the first details about the new controller, but also saw the design of the new Xbox for the first time. Once again, AMD is responsible for the processors. The manufacturer supplies the chips for the Xbox Series X. As part of its press conference for CES 2020 in Las Vegas, AMD showed a new animation for the console – and thus also the back of the hardware with the supposed connections.
The graphic below this message shows that the Xbox Series X should have two HDMI ports on the back, two USB-C ports and one port for power plug, optical audio and network. However, the creator of the presentation seems to have made a big mistake. Like Microsoft Insider and Thurrott Editor Brad Sams on Twitter No official Microsoft graphics were used for the AMD presentation.
Across from The Verge has AMD admitted the mistake: "The pictures of the Xbox Series X during the AMD-CES conference are not from Microsoft and do not exactly show the design or the features of the upcoming console. The pictures are from TurboSquid.com." Sams adds that "someone just took pictures of a 3D render and put them in the promo video". Images of the render graphics used are below this Link to TurboSquid to find. It remains to be seen which ports the Xbox Series X is actually equipped with. We keep you up to date in our news area.
