The much larger jump comes to the GPU, with 40 compute units at 1172MHz, as compared to just 12 units (853MHz) in the original. It also boasts12GB GDDR5, up from 8GB on XBO. Memory Bandwidth is 326GB/s versus 204-219GB/s on the Xbox One.
The GPU can hit 4K resolution at a smooth 60FPS, with about 88% GPU utilization. It will have liquid cooled vapor chamber cooling, and the smallest form factor of any previous Xbox.
The unit is expected to cost $499, although MS did not officially confirm the price.
