The Xbox Series X is the crown jewel of Microsoft’s next generation consoles. Not only does it have enormous computing power, but it is also a marvel in terms of systems design. One of the most amazing things about Series X is how Microsoft has managed to pack so much power into such a compact box.
Some reports indicated that the Xbox Series X was suffering from overheating issues, which makes people wary about using Xbox devices. Although a senior Microsoft Exec official has now dismissed these claims about their console.
Microsoft General Manager Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg defended his consoles in Response To ask a fan on Twitter.
“The console will take system heat out of the exhaust, just as any other console does. Our engineering team has confirmed that the heat leaving the console is not significantly different from the Xbox One X. This matches my experience at home with quiet, fast and impressive power for volume.”

The question is also unique since it discusses Series X performance when it comes to backward compatibility. However, Aaron’s response is loud and clear, which puts much in perspective.
Reports indicated that the Xbox Series X is suffering from overheating
The frenzied X series saga began when a specific post released a series of Claims Keyboards were extremely hot. Although there were concerns because the sources were real, this was all debunked soon enough. Individual sources provided their own responses, claiming that it was just a scenario where things were exaggerated by the post and nothing more than that.
Xbox Series X cooling is very different from its Sony counterpart. It has a steam and heat chamber with parallel cooling system. This allows the controller to operate at optimum temperatures with vertical airflow, making it also easy to assemble everything in a zip box.
On the other hand, the PS5 has a larger design that allows for more space for more heat and airflow. Both devices are engineering marvels in their own way.
All claims regarding heating issues in these switches should be taken with caution. Unless users encounter these issues head-on, these claims cannot be true. Additionally, these companies spent a fortune developing these units. There is no way to release them with such ongoing cases. This is food for thought for all, which we hope will ease the heated debate.
