Microsoft’s Xbox One X Aims to Be the “Most Powerful Console Ever Made”

Today during E3, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X. The console is based on the company’s previous Project Scorpio ambition that aimed to create the “most powerful console ever made.” As it appears now, it looks like they’ve done so.

The Xbox One X features 6 teraflops of graphics computing thanks to a specially-designed Scorpio-branded GPU clocked in at 1.72GHz. There’s as much as 12GB of GDDR5 RAM for gameplay and 326GB/s of memory bandwidth onboard as well. Liquid cooling, for the first time in a console, is used to simmer everything down under the hood.

The Xbox One X will work with all Xbox One games and accessories, while those who use Xbox One or even 360 games will experience a performance boost in addition to 4K output. Oh, and if it isn’t immediately clear, the One X sports 4K output. Microsoft: “You’re welcome.”

All of this computing power is loaded inside the smallest Xbox Microsoft has ever built. The company advertises they’ve built what users have asked for, so I guess this is what you get as a result.

In addition, the Xbox One X features an HDMI-in port and no dedicated Kinect port. Think of the back of the One X like you would the One S as it’s practically the same thing.

One of the first titles to launch alongside the Xbox One X will be Forza Motorsport 7 which runs at 60 frames per second in 4K. It lands October 3rd. They debuted some footage on stage, and I have to say, it looks pretty crispy. Of course, you can experience it for yourself here. Twenty-two “console launch exclusives” will follow Forza 7.

The Xbox One X will launch November 7th worldwide. It’ll be priced at $499, exactly $100 more than Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro.
