Sunday night saw the official unveiling of the Microsoft Xbox One X at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 during the company’s special event.
Formerly known as Project Scorpio, the Xbox One X is an update of Microsoft’s popular console that comes with a whole load of impressive new features.
Designed for ultra-high definition 4K televisions, the console runs on a mighty 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than the rival PlayStation 4 Plus’ 4.2 teraflops.
This is enough to rival the all-powerful graphical output of PCs, and a first for home consoles.
Similarly, the Xbox One X runs on a custom GPU engine at 1172MHz whereas the Xbox One runs at 835MHz.
It comes with an Ultra HD Blu-Ray drive specifically for 4K films and entertainment, providing owners with the very best picture quality available on the market.
It also comes with a handy 1TB of internal storage, so you’ll have plenty of room for a ton of 4K video games and video content.
Other notable features include the console’s liquid-cooled vapour-chamber cooling inside, a type of technology found in the very best PC gaming cards and one that enables the console to maintain 4K graphical output without any lag or stuttering.
The Xbox X One launches with 22 console exclusive games including Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves.
Microsoft is billing the Xbox One X as the most power home console ever, and it’s not hard to see how this may be the truth for at least the next few years.
The Xbox One X will be available in black when the console goes on sale worldwide from November 7th.
