Despite the brand’s missteps over the course of the past console generation, Xbox seems to have been reinvigorated since the arrival of the Xbox Series X and S back in 2020. Since then, microsoft has been working hard to harness his newfound strength, and now sources claim that the next revision of xbox series x could be more efficient than ever.
In particular, tech journalist Brad Sams seems to be convinced that microsoft works on a smaller and more efficient version of the silicon of the xbox series x, and should already be reasonably advanced. While this might seem like incredibly exciting news at first, the truth is that it’s probably more mundane after all.
According to Sams, who claims he “knows” that microsoft was working on a revision of the chip X-seriesit is very unlikely that these optimizations will translate into performance gains in games.
In fact, Sams went so far as to say that even if future revisions of the console xbox series x get the so-called upgraded chip, they will likely continue to use the same chassis design and blueprints, except they are more efficient. It is also not known if this is related to rumors about new Xbox hardware to be announced in late 2022.
Of course, there is also the third rumor to consider: the mysterious Xbox Codename Keystone. Although Sams claims about the existence of a chip xbox series x more effective and efficient could affect the possible development of a new Xbox console, the journalist himself was in charge of attenuating the expectation: these alterations will not be perceived in general by the usual players, and Keystone, if it ever materializes, is probably more substantial than a relatively small-scale Series X overhaul.
Virtually every console receives various hardware revisions throughout its life, and although it’s entirely possible that Microsoft will end up releasing a smaller or slimmer version of the Xbox Series Xit may still be too early for that to happen.
In this sense, the supposed optimizations of the chip may not lead to any changes to the chassis immediately, and almost certainly will not make games that come out on Xbox in the future run better.
