XBox Series X emulator is an open source research project for emulating Xbox Series X games on modern PC compatible with Windows.

The goal of this emulator is to experiment, research, and educate on the topic of emulation of modern devices and operating systems.

Despite this console using the same architecture as PCs, it is not any easier to emulate than other consoles as the architecture used is complex and uses undocumented hardware.

Built on SDL2, also supports virtually all gamepads.

Connect up to 4 controllers at any time, just like a real Xbox.

Connect to other instances of emulator and even real Xboxes, locally or over the Internet.

Breathe new life into your original Series X games by easily scaling up the resolution that games render at.

Releases are currently tested by YAXOD team on desktop computer with:

  • GPU: Nvidia GTX2080
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 with octa-core 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB

It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX 12 as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the Series X exclusives on high-end machines with some glitches as it is still in beta.
