Today Microsoft revealed it’s new console, the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X was codenamed Project Scorpio and was
suppose to be is the most powerful console you can buy.
The One X is powered by an 8 core customized AMD CPU, which is clocked at 2.3GHz. It has 12GB of GDDR5 of graphics memory, 6 teraflop GPU to output true 4K gameplay, and has 326Gb per second memory bandwidth for extreme processing. The One X is also cooled with liquid cooling technology specifically engineered for the console. Comes with a 1TB hard drive and 8 GB of flash memory. (Sounds like a cheap customized computer to me). Oh, and according to Microsoft, it’s the smallest Xbox to date. [All stats are from Microsoft’s official website]
The Xbox One X will release November 7, 2017, for $499.
I’m not completely sold on the Xbox One X but let me tell you, the games Microsoft showed off today look amazing. If you already have an Xbox One or an Xbox One S, I’m not sure it’s worth the upgrade just yet but if you don’t already own one it’s definitely something to consider. And to be fair, I wasn’t sold on the PS4 Pro either. Maybe Sony will lower the price of the Pro to be competitive or even announce a new console tomorrow at their E3 conference.
