Microsoft working on first hardware update for Xbox Series X – report

Microsoft may be working on a new, smaller chipset for the Xbox Series X console that could make the console more energy efficient.

The first major hardware update for the Xbox Series X was typed by YouTuber Brad Sims. When asked by a viewer if rumors of an improved chip for the consoles were true, he said, “I think that’s true,” mostly because Microsoft is always working on revisions.

He added: “I think it’s true that Microsoft is working on a smaller, more energy-efficient chip. I’m very confident about that.”

Sims explained that the chip in the console is now turning three years old considering when the design was approved prior to release.

“You have to remember that while the console was on the market for 18 months, the console that Microsoft originally started building was probably pulled off 14, 12 months before it actually shipped,” he said.

“In the world of technology, it’s an outdated design. Will we see performance improvements? I don’t think so, but Microsoft is always working on cooler, more efficient chips because that lowers production costs.”

You can see the segment in the video (via Pure Xbox) with the following timestamp:

As Sims said, it’s unlikely the chip will see performance improvements or changes to the console’s design, the Xbox Series X is a massive beast of a console, so it would be nice if Microsoft could find a way to make it a little smaller.

A more efficient chip could also help with users’ electricity bills given the current energy bill crisis. It would be nice for gamers to be able to enjoy the best Xbox Series X games without worrying about the meter reading for the coming weeks.
