There was great excitement when AMD showed the supposed back of the Xbox Series X at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. Microsoft and AMD immediately denied it, but the topic remains current. Buyers of the next-gen home console must therefore have to do without a promising connection option.

AMD also recently held a keynote on the occasion of CES 2020 in Las Vegas and, in addition to new processors and other hardware announcements, also presented the supposed back of the upcoming Xbox Series X in a highlight video. This caused a stir on the internet and later called Microsoft and AMD also on denials. Reason: AMD had a rendering of TurboSquid
Despite the denial, the topic remains topical, because this in turn prompted Thurrot to investigate and contact several Microsoft insiders. The sources have proven to be extremely reliable in the past, because hardware news related to Microsoft was often initially published by Thurrot leaked, which later turned out to be correct. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is an example.
According to the research by Thurrot the actual back of the Xbox Series X should not be too far from the rendering. If nothing changes until the final release of the next-gen console, players will have to do without a promising port. Microsoft is reported to be relying on two USB-A ports in the SuperSpeed version – and is thus foregoing the increasingly emerging USB-C.
In addition, the Xbox Series X should have an HDMI port, an optical audio output and just the power connection. Another port on the back is said to be available for debugging purposes, which it is specifically about and whether it also has functionality for players is currently not known. All ports should be in the lower half of the back of the console.
