Microsoft just announced all the specifications of the Xbox Series X. The new game console comes with a 1TB custom NVMe SSD, and the game loading speed significantly improves. According to a recent video, the Xbox Series X loads much faster than the Xbox One X. The comparison uses the came “State of Decay 2” and we observed the following

  • Xbox Series X starts to load after 13 seconds
  • After 11 seconds, the Xbox Series X has finished loading.
  • It took another 40 seconds for the Xbox One X to finish loading.

The new SSD support will also allow Xbox Series X users to resume the game immediately, and quickly return to the game even after restarting because the game state can be directly saved to the system’s SSD. It can even be recovered after a few weeks.
