JoseQ's Look at this Thing

Any way you slice it, the Xbox Series X is a powerful beast. Let's face it, SSDs brought with them the fastest perceived performance jump in computers since they stopped doubling MHz speed years ago. NVMe brought with it yet another jump, so you're essentially going from (computer) technology from the 90s, to current time in just one console generation. The Xbox Series X certainly looks like a winner already.
