Microsoft has finally unveil it next-gen console Xbox One X at E3 2017. It was announced since last year E3 which was under the name project scorpio. Microsoft revealed new details about the console, including the official name, price, and release date.
Hardware and Specifications
Xbox One X “The most powerful console ever made” is equipped with a system-on-chip (SOC) that contains a 6 teraflops GPU that features 40 “customized” Radeon compute units clocked at 1172 MHz,custom 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, as well as 12GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit bus for 326GB/s of memory bandwidth – higher than the GTX 1080.
Xbox One X will also come with a 1TB hard disk drive and a UHD Blu-ray drive, liquid-cooled vapor-chamber cooling tech. In addition to the robust tech specs, Microsoft’s new console will also support AMD FreeSync technology, which matches a display’s refresh rate with a game’s frame rate to prevent screen tearing.
With all of these specs and improvement over the Xbox one S, the Xbox one X is still the most compact Xbox ever made.
With all these graphical power, the Xbox one X should’t have problem running most games title in native 4k. During the E3 we also saw Xbox One X in action running several games at 4K resolution. Forza Motorsport 7 showed off a steady 60 frames per second (FPS), and the newly unveiled Metro: Exodus ran smoothly in 4K. Other new titles like Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, and BioWare’s Anthem will also support native 4K as well.
Users with 1080p displays can still benefits from the enhanced hardware since the Xbox One X can perform supersampling. It’s a form of antialiasing that renders a higher resolution image then outputs a downsampled image to fit the display, which results in fewer jagged edges and cleaner graphics.
Other titles which will also have Xbox One X enhancement updates include Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and Halo Wars 2.

Xbox One X is set to launch worldwide on November 7 with a price of $500 USD, £450 GBP, €499 Euro, $599 CAD, and $649 AUD.
