Xbox Series X will have no audio-only interface – Microsoft clarifies


Microsoft Xbox Series X

A few days ago, Microsoft officially announced the specs of the upcoming Xbox Series X. At Microsoft’s Game Stack Live online live broadcast, an obvious S / PDIF interface appeared on the rear panel of the Xbox Series X. This interface is absent from the renders which is quite confusing. Nevertheless, Microsoft has now clarified that the new Xbox Series X console will not include a dedicated S / PDIF audio interface. The interface of the final version of the Xbox Series X only includes a network cable interface, HDMI output, storage expansion card interface, and three USB 3.1 interfaces
