Microsoft has shared an array of new information about the upcoming Xbox Series X including the internal design, cooling system, specs and much more. The company updated the upcoming next-gen console’s home page with a brand-new in-depth look at how the console will work from the inside including the Xbox Velocity Architecture and SSD capabilities.
Most fascinating of all is the new three air-flow channel which Microsoft claims will distribute the temperatures generated by the console in order to keep it cool and quiet. The motherboard has also been split in two in order to split the heat distribution of the hardware to output more power with less energy
