Live will be the demo machine error Microsoft clarified that the new Xbox will not have an audio-specific interface

Now that most of the hardware specifications for the PS5 and Xbox Series X have been exposed in detail, Microsoft has even generously released a photo of the new Xbox from all angles, a bit more refined than expected, to the surprise of many fans. However, in today’s Microsoft’s Game Stack Live live broadcast, the official still made a small mistake.

Specifically, the Xbox Series X model that appeared in the Game Stack Live broadcast was not finalized, and an obvious S/PDIF interface appeared on the rear panel, which was not available in the official public rendering of the official public specifications on the evening of the 16th.

In response, IGN confirmed this to Microsoft, and Microsoft immediately responded with clarification: “The final version of the Xbox Series X interface contains only network interface, HDMI output, memory expansion card interface, and three USB 3.1 interfaces.” “

As a result, the audio of the new Xbox console appears to be only able to output through the HDMI interface in the absence of an S/PDIF interface, and Microsoft has previously confirmed that the Xbox Series X will be equipped with the latest HDMI 2.1 standard interface.

HDMI 2.1 has a higher capacity bandwidth (48 Gbps) to support simultaneous transmission of 8K images and Dolby Panorama signals.
