Microsoft says XBox Series X won't have Optical Audio Port

Xbox Series X release date accidentally revealed, then withdrawn

The company had talked about its Tempest audio engine, which will be used for the 3D audio feature.

However, many are calling this a risky move as it will definitely depend on how well the console ages and whether it will be able to maintain cool temperatures after dust gets into it.

A better way is to incorporate any differences in the previous console's logic into the new console's custom chips, meaning that even as the technology evolves, the logic and feature set that PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro titles rely on is still available in backwards compatibility modes. That means you'll see brighter whites when viewing a snowy mountain top, deeper blacks during darker scenes and a greater spectrum of colors overall.

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a relatively new TV standard that lets you experience accurate colors, greatly improved contrast and more vivid pictures than what was previously possible with standard dynamic range televisions (SDR).

During Sony's Playstation 5 spec unveiling, Sony made much of the fact that the PS5's GPU was more "agile" than the competition.

This is an impressive improvement as the console will still require games to be stored on the SSD in order to be played and this will drastically reduce load times.

For now, we still are yet to know some crucial details, such as how the PS5 looks, for instance, as it seems Sony isn't ready to show us the design just yet. Though, Sony will be enabling PS5 users to expand storage with NVMe PC drives.

And when Microsoft says any backwards compatible title can receive the HDR treatment - it means any title.


Jacob started covering video games and technology in college as a hobby, but it quickly became clear to him that this was what he wanted to do for a living.

This will allow players to feel like they're actually part of the game rather than just having sound blasted straight towards them. We have already seen many rumors and renders of both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, and it looks like the embargo will be lifted soon. A new console is planned for the upcoming season.

While the numbers aren't everything, they do give us a general idea of how these two consoles will perform, especially when it comes to internal storage.

"While the Xbox Series X will deliver a massive increase in GPU performance and continue to redefine and advance the state of art in graphics with new capabilities such as hardware accelerated raytracing", said Jason Ronald, Director of Product Management on Xbox Series X.

Where the PlayStation will soar ahead though lies in the IO Throughput. Being able to push 5.5 GB/s of data through while the Xbox only manages 2.4 GB/s is impressive.

Console exclusivity is a term that is nearly exclusive to PlayStation in the current generation.

Both of these next-gen consoles will have support on backwards compatibility.

While many information have been flying around the internet about the next-gen XBox Series X as far as the hardware is concerned, it will be designed differently and offer a much more streamlined aesthetics with other home appliance which probably what Microsoft is pushing for which is blending the game console with the living room appliances.
