Microsoft is bringing gaming servers and apps to Windows 10 and Xbox 1.1, and will support the latest Windows 10 operating system on the next-generation devices.
The news follows news last month that Microsoft had signed a deal with Intel to use the company’s Broadwell microarchitecture for Windows Server.
The company is also announcing a number of new gaming server products, including the xbox-powered Xbox One X, which it said will “deliver up to four times the performance and performance scalability of existing servers.”
Microsoft says that its Xbox One servers, which are built on Intel’s Haswell architecture, will also be available for the xBox One.
The company has also said that its new Xbox-based gaming platform will run on the latest version of Windows 10.
In announcing the deal, Microsoft said that the new server platforms will be able to “provide optimal performance and scalability for gaming applications,” which will be “better for your business and for the environment.”
The xbox will be used in conjunction with Windows 10’s new Game DVR feature, which will enable gamers to record their gameplay videos to stream to the Xbox Live platform.
The new server hardware, which has a base price of $2,999, will be available on October 17, 2019.
