By : |June 12, 2017 0

After a full year of waiting, Microsoft’s much-anticipated console was finally unveiled at its E3 event. The Xbox One X- previously known as “Project Scorpio”- is the “the most powerful gaming console ever”, claims the company and will arrive on November 7, priced at $499.

With a minimalist design, the ‘smallest Xbox, ever’ is much more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro that can run some games at 4K/60 frames per second. The new console features a custom 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, a 6 teraflop GPU clocked at 1.17GHz and 12GB of GDDR5 video RAM. With 4K gaming playback, matched by HDR video quality and Premium Dolby Atmos, Xbox One X is not just a gaming machine but a full entertainment experience.

The console will also feature a 4K Blu-ray drive, like the Xbox One S, something that even the PlayStation 4 Pro doesn’t support. You also won’t have to rebuild your game library or buy new accessories for the Xbox One X, as it’ll be compatible with everything from the Xbox One. The company has also promised to make scaling up easy, promising developers that any titles in 900p will be able to run at full frame rates in 4K, a feature it demoed during an early review back in April.

The Redmond company also noted that the box is capable of “supersampling,” i.e. users won’t need a 4K TV to take advantage of the new video quality. It will look good on a plain old standard 1080p set, as well.

From Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 to Killer Instinct, Halo Wars 2 and Minecraft, many games have been upgraded to provide the 4K experience with the Xbox One X. Microsoft also announced a slew of new titles — 42 to be exact. Each of these titles is also supposed to work with all the consoles released before the Xbox One X. However, they will work best with the One X.

So, with the 42 new titles and the most powerful console ever, gamers couldn’t have asked for more from Microsoft.
