The Xbox One X

Updated on July 18, 2017

Consoles have always been two steps behind computer gaming, but that is about to change. Microsoft is planning to launch a brand new Xbox One console called the Xbox One X. According to Microsoft, it's the best console in the world. A high-end gaming computer will still give you better performance, but this console is still pretty amazing.

4K Resolution

The first thing that caught my eye was the fact that the Xbox One X will be able to handle 4K resolution. This makes the Xbox One X the first console to handle 4K resolution. Graphics of games will look cleaner than ever. Games will look more realistic, colors will be more luminous, and animations will be much more smooth. The visual depth of games will be better, and will look much more realistic with 4K resolution. The overall graphics of games will be improved tremendously.

CPU(Central Processing Unit) and GPU(Graphics Processing Unit)

The Xbox One X will not only be able to handle 4K resolution, but it will also change the overall gameplay. It has a 8-core Custom AMD CPU that is clocked at 2.3GHz, which will produce smoother interactions, enhanced AI, and real world detail. The new CPU will be at least 30% faster than the original CPU of the Xbox One.

There will also be an upgrade on memory. The new and improved Xbox One X will have 12GB GDDR5 of graphic memory, which is expected to bring more speed and power. The improved memory will be able to produce bigger worlds, further horizons, and much quicker load times. Load times are usually annoying, and it also depletes momentum, but the Xbox One X will change that for the better. The console comes with 326 GB/sec memory bandwidth, which will keep a gamer's momentum flowing.

Cooling and Power Supply

The Xbox One X will actually be the smallest console they've ever made, but it will still be the strongest. The Xbox One X will use an advanced liquid cooling system with a supercharger-style centrifugal fan. This means that the Xbox One X will stay cool, and not even make a lot of noise. The console will also use a cutting edge digital power delivery system to tune the voltage of the console. This will maximize performance, and minimize power consumption.

Microsoft also selected a couple of games, and enhanced them specifically for the new Xbox One X. The new console from Microsoft is truly one amazing console. This is the first step to the new generation of consoles. Maybe the next generation of consoles will be even more powerful than high-end gaming computers. You can expect to see the new Xbox One X in stores from 7th November 2017.

Would you buy this console if you could afford it?
