Xbox Series X will feature dedicated audio hardware-acceleration, and it will be discussed during a GDC 2020 session hosted by Microsoft.

The GDC 2020 session will “dive deep” into the audio design pipeline and its relationship to dedicated hardware-acceleration on newer generation Xbox consoles.

According to Wccftech, having dedicated audio hardware-acceleration will improve spatial sound.

The session, according to its description, will include Microsoft’s senior technical audio specialist Rober Ridihalgh, and the audio designers of Borderlands 3 and Gears of War 5.

As far as audio improvements go with PS5, the console is said to feature 3D audio integration.
