Meet Microsoft’s Most Powerful Console Yet: The Xbox One X

Even faster and more powerful than the PS4 Pro

Microsoft has officially unveiled its next-generation console at E3. The previously code-named Project Scorpio is now officially known as the Xbox One X, and is fitted out with serious hardware to play the next generation of AAA games in 4K resolution at 60FPS.

The new console is styled much like the previous generation, but with subtle differences, like the overhang at the top. Microsoft says that the Xbox One X is its smallest console to date.

Despite that it’s packed with serious hardware to run next gen games: a custom 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, a 6 teraflop GPU clocked at 1.17GHz and 12GB of GDDR5 video RAM. It’s capable of HDR gaming and comes packing Dolby Atmos support, and even if gamers don’t have a 4K TV, 1080p oversampling will still make games look good on regular TV sets.

Microsoft says that the Xbox One X has a 4K Blu-ray drive, and that games and accessories for the regular Xbox One will be compatible with the new console.

Microsoft’s Xbox One X will land on November 7th for $499, or around Php 25K.
