The Xbox family, including the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox One S and Xbox Series X developed by Microsoft, is one of the best video game console series in the world. Xbox Series X promises four times the power of the Xbox One X and is being billed by Microsoft as the "fastest, most powerful games console ever." To match that dramatic leap in performance, the Series X gets a new 'tall tower' design and a new wireless controller. The Xbox Series X also gets 16GB of GDDR6 memory – an upgrade from the Xbox One X's 12GB GDDR5. That won't all be used in games, however. The faster GDDR6 memory should also offer a big leap in performance.
