It’s now been close to five years since the PS4 and Xbox One consoles have come out. Since that time, both Sony and Microsoft have also released the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles respectively, although the future of gaming will be for newer pieces of hardware.
With 2019 and 2020 drawing near, these are the years that gaming analysts have predicted that we may see the first revelations of the new console hardware from Sony and Microsoft. Not a lot has been shared about next generation hardware yet, but a recent job listing from Micrsoft shows that they are working on the future of gaming right now.
Microsoft posted the job listing on its official Careers website. The company is currently seeking for a “Sr. Electrical Engineer” to help them in their hardware department.
Here’s some details on the job description: “Our teams ship tens of millions of hardware products every year including the Xbox One X, Xbox One S, a full accessories lineup, and more. Microsoft is the destination for the brightest minds in gaming device design. Come be part of what’s next.
We are seeking a qualified candidate for a Senior Engineer to lead the DRAM solutions for the Xbox console hardware development team. DRAM solutions include DDR3, GDDR5, GDDR6 and future DRAM technologies. The successful candidate will be the primary technical focal point for existing and leading-edge memory technologies on currently shipping and future Xbox design projects.”
As aforementioned, we may have to wait a while until the PlayStation 5 and the new Xbox get revealed. For now, we can still enjoy the current generation as they are far from being finished.
