The most powerful console in the world.
Yesterday Xbox had their yearly E3 briefing in hopes to make it their best one yet with the exciting announcement of their “Project Scorpio” console, the Xbox One X.
Despite the Xbox One just came out in 2013, there has already been console upgrades like the Xbox One S, and now for a whopping $499 you will be able to purchase the new and improved Xbox experience on November 7, 2017, the Xbox One X. Why is this the most powerful console? Well we have you covered here.
Below is the official tech specs of the console, which is now the smallest console ever from Microsoft, and the beauty of the 4K experience for gamers.
- 6 teraflops GPU clocked at 1.172Ghz
- 12GBs of GDDR5 memory
- 326GB/s of memory bandwidth
- 8 million plus pixels
- Wide color gamut
- Premium Dolby Atmos sound
- 4K UHD Blu-ray playback
- Liquid-cooled vapor chamber
All existing Xbox One accessories will work on the new Xbox One X along with all existing Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles and Xbox One games. Microsoft is planning to use “super sampling” on the Xbox One X to make new games look better even on 1080p TV.
As far as the games go, Microsoft has 22 “console launch exclusives” arriving on the Xbox One X, including Crackdown 3, Forza Motorsport 7, and Sea of Thieves.
However, have no fear if you aren’t able to purchase this behemoth of a console, all future Xbox One titles will be playable on previous versions of the Xbox One, as well as the Xbox One X, including Windows 10 as well. The new games will simply have the 4K resolution and will run better on the new console.
So what do you think of the new Xbox One console? Will you be picking up a copy on November 7th? Pre-orders are officially available at retailers along with the Microsoft online store.
