Several days ago, Microsoft showed the world the new Xbox One X, which they call “The World’s most powerful console” which is a true statement. Xbox One X features faster processing power compared to the Xbox One, “The 8-core Custom AMD CPU is clocked at 2.3GHz to bring enhanced AI, real world detail, and smoother interactions to your gaming.” The Xbox One X also features 12 GB of GDDR5 of graphical memory allowing for better draw distance, and bigger worlds. A good example of this is the E3 Demo’s of Assassin’s Creed Origins. The 6 Teraflop GPU also also for more detail, more lifelike environments ranging from trees, to water, to faces. Xbox One X uses advanced liquid cooling and the supercharger-style centrifugal fan which allows it stay cool and also maintain a small size, it is the smallest console Microsoft has ever made, being much smaller than the Xbox One and Xbox One S, despite having much better hardware.
The Xbox One X is also capable of playing games at 4K and 60 fps. Now this ranges from game to game, what developers decide to do, and what the system is even capable of. Forza Motorsport 7 is true 4K and 60fps, which is impressive for a console, but nothing new to people on the PC scene. Xbox One X is going back to the roots of consoles being somewhat more on a higher power side. As the Xbox One and PS4 were severely outdated the moment they were announced. It is designed to allow for cheaper 4K gaming for the consumer market to use. It’ll come out on November 7th for $499.99, which is a fair price for what is in the box, any lower and they would be taking a lose. Now if you should buy it, do you have a 4K TV? Do you care if your games look and run better for a few hundred dollars more? It’s up to you, below I link the official Xbox website which contains even more information about the Xbox One X, educate yourself before purchasing. Until next time.
