The new console from Microsoft has not even been released and is already causing a “hum-hum-hum”. Xbox Series X and One X; previous generation is it worth it? I’ll get this information to help gamers to see if it’s still worth opting for the past console.
The Xbox One X, launched in late 2017, was the most robust and advanced version of Microsoft consoles. With 8 GB of flash memory, 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage, it brought full support for games with 4K definition and was released with the nickname “the most powerful video game in the world”, just because it surpasses the PS4 Pro .
Xbox Series X and One X; previous generation is it worth it?
So far, what has been reported by Microsoft is the discontinuity of manufacturing the One X, with only the One S being maintained (with disk reader).
What does that mean? With the Xbox One S manufacturing being maintained, the more robust version (One X) will still have longevity in support. Therefore, if you already have the console of the previous generation, you will not lose the usefulness of the device.
A second scenario is: you already had the R $ 3,000 – average selling price of the device – in hand to buy the Xbox One X, what to do? In this situation, my advice is not to buy the Xbox One X, the sale price of the new Series X console is around R $ 5,000.
It is more worthwhile to give in, with the money that would be invested in One X, and install the rest to purchase the Series X. You will have smaller installments than many gamers and will be with the new generation console.
What do I lose by continuing with my Xbox One X?
If you, like me, are undergoing financial restructuring, you may need to wait a little longer to acquire the Xbox Series X. I cannot lie, you will be without some technological resources that give the new generation console an advantage.
Processing and Graphics
The Xbox Series X comes to the market with great robustness. Its 8X Core processing at 3.8 Ghz, shows that data will be no problem for him.
In graphics, its 12 TFLOPS card brings real 4K to your screen, not just an experience. Opponents will have to run hard to reach that level, up to 120 FPS[[[[frames per second].
As for the sound, it is far superior to the One X, bringing the novelty of Dolby TrueHD with Atmos, reaching up to 7.1 L-PCM.
Memory and storage
- Memory: 16GB GDDR6 with 320-bit bus, much higher than the 8GB GDDR5 presented on One X;
- Storage: 1 TB like the One X, however, the memory is ultra-fast SSD. Another advantage is the support for Seagate expansion card made specifically for the Series X, space reasonably necessary since the Xbox One X games reach more than 100GB, imagine those of the new generation.
Wireless and connectivity
|Xbox Series X||Xbox One X|
|HDMI: 1 HDMI 2.1 port||HDMI: 2 HDMI ports (internal 1.4b; external 2.0b)|
|USB: 3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports||USB: 3 USB 3.0 ports|

Exclusive benefits of Xbox Series X
- Airflow channels: Xbox Parallel Cooling Architecture was created with three air channels that distribute the temperatures created by the internal components, which keeps the console cool and quiet;
- Divided motherboard: The divided motherboard keeps the temperature of the internal components of the console controlled;
- Heatsink: Heatsink chassis is a non-electronic component, which combines parallel cooling with design to increase performance reliability;
- Steam chamber: allows a uniform distribution of temperatures within the core;
- Silent fan: The vertical airflow system keeps the console running smoothly and with quiet cooling.
If you already have Xbox One X, rest assured, you won’t be without support. If the gamer is one of those who can’t stand a novelty, take the money that would buy the One X and invest in a Series X, the superiority of the new generation promises many news on the way.
I hope I helped to clear your doubts about the previous generation (One X) still being worth the investment. Good games.
