As the launch of the Xbox Series X approaches, more sites will have the opportunity to test Microsoft’s new video game and perform interesting performance tests. This time the honor went to Venturebeat, which found an excellent performance in the console’s cooling system.
According to the website, the Xbox Series X is able to run consistently at a lower temperature than the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. In the test, the website used a copy of the game Hitman 2 and left all video games on for 30 minutes each before playing 10 minutes of the Mumbai mission, only then to take the temperature measurement, which you can see below:
