Microsoft has just unveiled the Xbox One X, known until now as Project Scorpio, its most powerful yet smallest gaming console ever. The product will be available starting November 7, 2017, and will retail for $499.
At $499, you’d be paying for pure power, and the Xbox One X does bring a lot to the table:
Scorpio engine with custom silicon that brings 6 Teraflops, 326GB/s of Memory Bandwidth for the most powerful console ever released
Vapor Chamber with liquid cooling
Centrifugal fan for additional cooling with minimum noise
Hovis Method power delivery system to custom-tune the voltage for each console
As far as the gaming experience itself goes, Microsoft earlier said that all 900p and 1080p games should ideally be able to run at native 4K on the Xbox Project Scorpio, and we should be seeing that on the Xbox One X when it’s out. Forza Motorsport 7, which is coming out on October 3, will be one of the titles featured for the Xbox One X.
There are also 21 other games that are “console launch exclusives” for the Xbox One X. Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves are just two of these titles. Microsoft is also bringing original Xbox games to the new console, beginning with Crimson Skies.
Unfortunately, pre-orders aren’t open yet, but they should, soon. We’ve provided some links to pre-order channels including the Xbox site, Amazon, Best Buy, etc. in this article. Please review.
