According to Daniele Galante (senior sound designer at Ninja Theory), XSX will have a new chip for the audio of the console. This means that the sound quality on Series X will be significantly higher than the last-gen console. “It’s extremely exciting,” Galante said. “We’re going to have a dedicated chip to work with audio, which means we finally won’t have to fight with programmers and artists for memory and CPU power.”
“We take for granted that graphics are powered by their own video cards. But in audio, we haven’t had anything like that. Now we have some power dedicated to us,” audio lead David Garcia added.
