Xbox One X: World's Most Powerful Game Console
Microsoft's Project Scorpio is now officially known as the Xbox One X and it still boasts of being the "world's most powerful console." The highly anticipated gaming console was finally introduced at this year's E3 giving gamers and tech enthusiasts alike something to watch out for come November.
Microsoft first unveiled some of the details of the Xbox One X, referred to as the Xbox Project Scorpio at the time, via Digital Foundry and Eurogamer. Back then, the most interesting aspects of the console shared by the website were its design and the fact that it was indeed the world's most powerful console thanks to its six teraflops of power and 16nm SoC.
Microsoft has now released more details of the Xbox One X and its specs are exciting not only because of the six teraflops peak shader throughput. The Xbox One X comes with eight CPU cores similar to its two predecessors but unlike the Xbox One and Xbox One S, the new console has improved or updated every other vital specification.
For starters, Microsoft's two previous consoles only had 1.23 and 1.4 teraflops as compared to the six of the Xbox One X. The new gaming console has a 2.3GHz clock speed which is 31 percent faster than the Xbox One S, as Anandtech noted. It will also come with a "custom processor" which is likely an updated variant of the AMD Jaguar. The Xbox One X will also have 40CUs, 2560 SPs, and 1172 MHz. While it has no embedded memory, the Xbox One X comes with 12GB GDDR5 system memory with a 384-bit memory bus and 326 GB/s bandwidth.
The Verge pointed out that Microsoft describes the Xbox One X as "the smallest Xbox ever." The Xbox One X measures 300mm x 240mm x 60 mm and weighs 3.8 kg which is a lot heavier than the 2.9 kilo Xbox One S and 3.54 kilo Xbox One.
The Xbox One X will be available for $499 which is $200 more expensive than the Xbox One S. It will be released worldwide on November 7.
