Yesterday’s E3 2017 conference for Microsoft was filled with 22 exclusive titles and more importantly the highly spoken of Project Scorpio introduced to us consumers as the Xbox One X. A rather vague sounding name I know, but we have everything you need to know about the console below.
It will come as no surprise that the console tackles 4K gaming with ease and the console design itself is smaller than the Xbox One and Xbox One S. More power, smaller size, sounds great right? We’ve provided the full specs below:
- Eight custom CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz
- 326GB/s of memory bandwidth
- 1172MHz GPU – with 40 customised compute units
- 12GB GDDR5 memory
- 1TB HDD
- 4K UHD Blu-ray disc player
- 4K gaming support
- VR support
However, if you play on a 1080p TV/monitor you will still notice a difference graphically with super-sampling thanks to more processing power required for 4K primarily.
The most important thing people will want to know is price, well to the UK £449, which will hopefully include some kind of bundled deal with one of the titles shown off to the public yesterday night. Affordable if you already have the 4K TV setup.
Xbox One Games
Some Xbox One titles will also see a nice upgrade optimising their games for Xbox One X including titles such as Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. Expect 4K upgrades.
If you have any questions on the Xbox One X, please feel free to ask away in the comments and we’ll answer them for you.
