The cloud gaming service will launch later this year powered by Xbox One S consoles in server blades, but next year’s upgrade to Series X will provide a significant performance boost, according to The Verge.
This will reportedly include the ability to run four Xbox One S game sessions simultaneously and a video encoder that’s up to six times faster than the existing one.
At launch later this year, it’s expected to let users stream Xbox games they already own from the cloud, as well as Xbox Game Pass titles.
And The Verge has backed up a previous report claiming Microsoft is working on a feature that will also allow users to stream PC games across xCloud.
In theory, it could let users stream PC games to their Xbox console and play them in the living room.
