Those Xbox Series X specs don’t tell us much, do they?

So, Microsoft finally unleashed some more specific spec information about the Xbox Series X. The next generation console is going to have an AMD Zen 2-based processor and an RDNA 2-based GPU, which will theoretically be able to push out 12 teraflops of Floating Point 32 (FP32) performance. But, does that really tell us anything?

Microsoft did also state that it will be coming with a next-generation SSD – which we knew already, along with Variable Rate Shading and HDMI 2.1. Both of these latter specs weren’t confirmed, but Microsoft would be silly not to include compatibility for these technologies.

So the only real piece of news out of this spec reveal – at least as far as hardware is concerned is the GPU’s 12 Tflops of floating point performance. But that’s not as meaningful as you may think.
