Today at E3 Microsoft  announced the release information on their latest Xbox console. The Xbox One X set to release November 7th 2017 will feature the most powerful console to date. Featuring the following:

  • 8-core custom AMD CPU (2.3 Ghz)
  • 12GB GDDR5 Ram
  • 6-Teraflop based GPU
  • 1TB Drive

Every Xbox One X will also feature a 1 month free Xbox Game Pass & 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold. The final price tag… $500. This is the most powerful console set to come to market alongside the PS4 Pro. Offering true 4K support (60 FPS) & games to match. The E3 announcement also showcased some Xbox One X exclusives such as Forza Motorsport 7, State of Decay 2, and Sea of Thieves.  In terms of the design the Xbox One X looks very similar to that of the previous S. Slightly slimmer & sans the vented top in a black design.

There’s no questioning the power they were able to pack into a slightly smaller footprint of the Xbox & push towards the standard of 4K games/content. However at $500 entry price point it definitely puts the console out of reach for some. Xbox One S comes in at around $100 more than it’s PS4 competition.

Xbox One X hits the stores worldwide November 7th this year.
