Last year Microsoft teased project Scorpio at E3 2016. This year Microsoft have finally unveiled their next console and of course the name to go along with it.
Xbox One X is set to bring a huge performance boost to the Xbox platform and offer 4K@60fps gaming to the console market. The new console will bring 6 Teraflops of power with 12GB’s of GDDR5 memory and a 1TB hard drive.
The console will include all of the new features that we saw on the Xbox One S including HDR, Dolby Atmos, and UHD Blu-Ray playback, but this time with a big CPU/GPU upgrade that makes 4K gaming possible. All of this comes within a console that is smaller than any Xbox before it.
Gaming will benefit from the new console, but not just new games. Microsoft have stated that over 30 games from third party developers will be updated to take advantage over the massive performance increase the new console will provide. Some of the titles will include Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft, Resident Evil 7, Final Fantasy 15, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rocket League, and more will all include updates for launch of the Xbox One X.
The console launches on November 7th worldwide and will cost $499, which we’re guessing will be around €499, and £349- £379. We have included the launch video for the new console below. Make sure to keep an eye for more coverage of E3 2017 as it happens on geektech.ie
