Look, sometimes we get it wrong. I got it wrong with this article, you can read it here. It posed the question about if the Xbox Series X could have temperature issues when running. Now that many people in the industry have gotten their hands on review copies of the console, that question is answered.
The Xbox Series X runs cooler than the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro. Our friends at VentureBeat even went as far as to test the internal temperature of the console. Out of the gauntlet of the Xbox One X, the Playstation 4 Pro, a gaming PC, and the Series X, it got second. It makes sense that a tricked out PC would run the coolest, it has more space and vents to expel the hot air inside the case. The Series X ran at an average of 47.7 degrees Celsius. Which was way below the temp of the PS4 Pro at 62.5 Celsius.
It’ll be interesting to see how the console stacks up against the Playstation 5, but this is a good indicator that we won’t have horrible issues like the Xbox 360.
Are you excited for the launch of the next-gen consoles? Did you get through the horrible pre-order process with one? So what do you think about these temperature revelations?
