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.

Game Enhancements

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.

Release Date and Price

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.
