A new Xbox Series X chip is reportedly in development, but don’t expect better performance

Microsoft has reportedly started working on an improved chip for the Xbox Series X console. According to journalist Brad Sams, the new chip is meant to be smaller, more power efficient, and could lead to lower production costs.

“I believe that’s true – I know Microsoft was working on revisions to the chip,” Sams said on his YouTube channel (as transcribed by Pure Xbox and c. 25:50). “Now are we going to see performance improvements, are we going to see anything else? “It’s true that Microsoft is working on a smaller, more power-efficient chip. That is to say, I’m very confident in that.”
