Mark Whitten unveiled the Xbox One’s internals at its event on Tuesday, saying the console takes advantage of 8GB of RAM and a BluRay player. Additional specs include USB 3.0, Wi-Fi Direction, 802.11n, HDMI in/out, 500GB HDD, 8 core CPU and THREE OPERATING SYSTEMS. Three operating systems in one console, with a revamped Xbox OS, kernel of Windows and a third that connects the first two for instant switching.
The specs are what enables such a seamless experience, allowing users to switch between all their entertainment without any lag. With such an emphasis being put on a single entertainment experience, Microsoft needed to include specs to power that, and it certainly seems like the Xbox One is a power beast.
