Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro: Which Is The Better 4K Console?
The very recent official unveiling of the Xbox One X, also known as Project Scorpio, gives gaming enthusiasts a better idea on how it compares with other consoles. The Xbox One X is obviously better than its predecessors particularly the original Xbox One and the Xbox One S but is it better than the popular PlayStation 4 Pro?
Let's start off with what Microsoft is selling with the Xbox One X - its power. The One X boasts of being the "world's most powerful console" as backed up with its six teraflops of performance as compared to the 4.2 teraflops of the PlayStation 4 Pro. The Xbox One X uses integrated AMD graphics while Sony's premium console utilizes an AMD Polaris one.
The PS4 Pro is powered by a 2.1GHz eight-core AMD custom Jaguar processor while the Xbox One S will come with a faster 2.3GHz clock speed along with eight custom x86 cores in what is likely a custom AMD Jaguar CPU. The PS4 Pro has 8GB of RAM while the Xbox One X packs more storage with 12GB GDDR5. Both has built-n storage of 1TB.
The Xbox One X is dubbed the "smallest Xbox ever" thanks to a dimension of 11.8 x 9.4 x 2.4 inches. The PS4 Pro meanwhile measures 12.8 x 11.6 x 2.1 inches. The One X, however, is heavier at 8.4 pounds to the PS$ Pro's 7.2 pounds.
As Trusted Reviews pointed out, those planning to get a 4K gaming console will now have a difficult time deciding whether to get the PS4 Pro or to wait for the upcoming Xbox One X. The PS4 Pro comes with Blue-ray drive, HDR support, and 4K support while the Xbox One X will have a 4K/HDR Blu-ray optical drive.
The good news for all PS4 Pro and future Xbox One X owners is that both support their respective predecessor's titles. This basically means PS4 games can be played on the PS4 Pro while Xbox One S titles will be playable on the Xbox One X.
With regards to backwards compatibility, Microsoft has already mentioned that Xbox One will eventually roll over to the upcoming console. CNET also reported that players can enjoy "X optimized" games more as they will take full advantage of the new console's 4K resolution.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is of course currently available and is priced at $399 for each unit. The PS4 Pro Slim is even cheaper at a range of $250 to $300. The Xbox One X is more expensive at $499 and will be available worldwide starting November 7.
The Xbox One X definitely looks good on paper and its impressive specs will likely translate to a great playing experience. Sony so far holds the majority of the market for home consoles but Microsoft is sure to give its rival a scare. In fact, the Xbox One X has what it takes to supplant the PS4 Pro as the best gaming console.
