Inside Xbox event will take place on May 7th at 8 am PT.

“You want to see games for the Xbox Series X? We want to show you games for the Xbox Series X,” Microsoft said on Twitter. The first look event will likely focus on the third-party games being developed for the Xbox Series X. Microsoft has confirmed to IGN that its first-party games will be shown later in summer.

The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s most important console in years. From the outside, it resembles a PC desktop tower, a new design language for an Xbox console. Inside, the Series X has a custom-designed 8-core, 16-thread processor from AMD, with Zen 2 and Navi architecture that’s clocked at 3.8 GHz. It also features a 12-teraflop FPU as well as 16GB GDDR6 RAM across ten 14gbps chips. The console will support 8K gaming with frame rates of up to 120 fps, plus ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections.
