Industry insiders expose real new Xbox rear panel configuration

Yesterday (7) AMD released a rendering promotional video of partner Microsoft’s Xbox Series X at the CES 2020 conference, exposing the back panel configuration of the next generation Xbox. In the end, however, Microsoft issued an emergency statement clarifying that the renderings of the site were not official and were not credible. Despite the timeliness of the two sides’ clarifications, the Internet is still flooded with inconsistent new Xbox back panel design information, and today’s industry insider Brad Sams said on the social platform that he got the exact design configuration from insiders.

From the design map he provided, we can see that the back of the next-generation Xbox will have two large honeycomb-like cooling zones, with an interface dock in the middle. The graphics style basically distinguishes that the Xbox will have two USB-A ports (ultra-high-speed ports), an Ethernet interface, an HDMI interface, a fiber-optic audio interface, and a power outlet. The narrow interface in the middle is considered for debugging, its functional nature has not yet been characterized, may not exist in the vendor version of the goods host.

It’s worth noting that Brad Sams, while confident about the source, is cautious that this is only the current Xbox console interface configuration design and is still in an iterative period, subject to change at any time.

Brad Sams, the editor of two websites, has previously successfully revealed the content of Halo: Infinity, which Microsoft has published in 2018, so he has some credibility.
