Xbox Series X Hardware And Controller Details Revealed

During The Game Awards 2019, Microsoft surprised everyone with the reveal of its next-generation home console named the Xbox Series X, along with a few additional details about the system and its controller.
The Xbox Series X has 4x the processing power of the Xbox One X, and uses a custom AMD processor with the "latest Zen 2 and next-generation RDNA architecture." The system does 4K and 60FPS, of course, but is capable of doing 8K and 120FPS. Microsoft says that devs will also be able to take advantage of the Series X's GPU with Variable Rate Shading (VRS).
Microsoft is also giving the Xbox Series X Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto-Low Latency Mode (ALLM), both currently in the Xbox One.
The system can be orientated horizontally or vertically, neither appears to interfere with the system's cooling vent at the top.
As for the controller, it's been reshaped slightly in size and shape to be more accommodating to more people, and a dedicated share button has been added right in the middle. The d-pad is a new one similar to the one on the Elite Series 2 controller.
