Do you recall Project Scorpio by Microsoft. It took Microsoft a whole year to name their new console. Microsoft is finally calling it Xbox One X. I really thought they will call it Xbox Scorpio but I guess it was not catchy enough so Microsoft deciede to go with Xbox One X. Initial reports revealed, the new console will be released on Nov 7th, 2017.
Price of XBox One X:
This powerful amazing 4K console will sell for $499 says Microsoft.
Microsoft has already announced number of awesome features such as backward compatibility and processing power that make Xbox One X the most powerful gaming console ever manufactured. Sony is in no shape to argue here, there is a ton of power under the hood on this baby. From Microsoft point of view this console keeps Microsoft’s mid life console line both ahead of the competitor and up to speed with the latest happenings on the gaming room Audio Video front.

It would be overstating to call Xbox One X “a new console” because Xbox one has been through half life cycle as of today. Xbox 360 was alive for well over 8 years before it’s successor was launched but Microsoft felt the need to keep up with PlayStation PRO. PlayStation Pro comes with 4K and VR capabilities, so rather rushing a new generation of console the company has injected an upgrade version of Xbox One.
Xbox One X Horsepower:
The console is packed with tons of horse power. It comes with:
- 8 custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
- 6 teraflops of graphics performance. By comparison, the PS4 Pro has 4.2 teraflops, the standard Xbox One has 1.31 teraflops, and the standard PlayStation 4 has 1.84 teraflops.
- 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. By comparison, every other current Xbox and PlayStation console has 8 GB.
- A 1 TB hard drive for storing all your games. It appears this will not be upgradeable, however.
- Dolby Atmos audio, which’ll lend richer sound to compatible games. The Xbox One S supports this too, though.
