Digital Foundry thoroughly analyzed the console Xbox Series X, top of the range model of the next-gen vision of the house Microsoft products, giving its own evaluation in terms of temperature, consumption e noise level, through a new video (which awaits you on the cover). According to DF's Richard Leadbetter, the Xbox Series X's noise level is so low as to be almost completely imperceptible.

With most games tested (all backwards compatible titles) the console did not exceed 170 W of consumption, with the only exception of Gears 5 (here a comparison between the Xbox Series X and Xbox One X versions), which resulted in the required energy levels equal to 200 W. As for the temperature levels reached during the most demanding gaming sessions, Series X gave excellent initial responses, with the front section of the console that did not exceed 50 ° C (it stopped just below: 49 degrees), while in the lower part the 20°C (22 ° C to be exact). At the top of the grid it is recorded instead the highest temperature: 60 ° C (where the hot air from the machine is pushed outwards).
