At Microsoft’s E3 2017 briefing, the company’s event this year was all about the mid-generation Xbox hardware powerhouse formerly known as Project Scorpio. Xbox One X is the name and it’s coming on Nov 7th this year.
Microsoft’s most powerful console ever, the officially named Xbox X (formerly known as Project Scorpio) will, according to MS, also be the most powerful console in the world.
At Microsoft’s Xbox briefing at E3 2017, the company announced that the new console will arrive on November 7th around the world. The new console will ship with 6 teraflops of power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft is using a custom GPU engine on Xbox One X that runs at 1172MHz, a big increase over the Xbox One’s 853MHz and even Sony’s 911MHz found on the PS4 Pro.
The company is hoping this focus on raw grunt and native 4k UHD HDR rendering will give them the Edge against the current leaders in the console race, Sony’s PlayStation 4. And, of course, the console should be powerful enough for impressive VR experiences too. Some hints of this have already been shown with realtime gameplay of Forza 7 running at a claimed native 4k, 60Hz.
Xbox One X will find it’s way to retail on November 7th priced $499.
