Update [7:59 p.m. ET]: Microsoft has released a statement saying the Xbox Series X render used today by AMD during its CES 2020 press conference was not from Microsoft, and doesn't reflect the design of the upcoming next-gen console.
"The Xbox Series X imagery used during the AMD CES press conference was not sourced from Microsoft and does not accurately represent the design or features of the upcoming console," a statement from Microsoft sent out to press today read. "They were taken from TurboSquid.com."
We've reached out to Microsoft for further comment. Our original story follows:
The next generation is fast approaching, and during AMD's presentation at CES 2020 today, we got a glimpse of what Microsoft might be doing with its new console. A rear shot of the Xbox Series X revealed the console's access ports, which included two HDMI ports.
AMD's CES presentation opened with a rotating shot of the Series X, and on the back there looked to be two USB-C ports and two HDMI ports. Wario64 captured and uploaded a high-quality shot of the new Xbox on Twitter:

You can also spy an Ethernet port, so you can get a good connection to online services and multiplayer, as well as what looks like a two-pin connector. It hasn't been confirmed if Microsoft plans on including HDMI passthrough as an option for the Series X, as it had on the Xbox One, so this at least indicates it's a strong possibility. Eagle-eyed viewers also spotted a standard USB port on the front of the console, in addition to the USB-C ports spied in the back.
We recently got a lot of details about the Xbox Series X from an Xbox blog post, following the unveiling of the system at the 2019 Game Awards. It's targeting 60 frames per second at 4K and using solid state drives to cut down load times. It's a beefy piece of hardware, but two HDMI ports add another interesting wrinkle to the big box's capabilities.
