Gear Lust – The Xbox One X

SHARE

Microsoft says its Xbox One X, which will be releasing on November 7, is the world’s most powerful gaming console. It’s not a next-generation system but instead is an updated version of the Xbox One that came out last 2013.

Xbox One X specs

Here are some of the Xbox One X specs revealed:

  • 6 teraflops GPU clocked at 1.172Ghz
  • 12GBs of GDDR5 memory
  • 326GB/s of memory bandwidth
  • 8 million plus pixels
  • HDR
  • Wide color gamut
  • Premium Dolby Atmos sound
  • 4K UHD Blu-ray playback
  • Liquid-cooled vapor chamber

What it means

Beyond all the tech speak, here’s what all this means for you.

4K game resolution

Consoles like the original/slim PlayStation 4 or regular Xbox One don’t have the power to render games in 4K. Sony rolled out the PS4 Pro last year to remedy their console’s inability. The Xbox One X is Microsoft’s answer.

As mentioned above, the Xbox One X chugs out 6 teraflops versus the PS4 Pro’s 4.2. This means Microsoft’s console will have an easier time running games at stable frame rates.

  1. nice specs, shame it counts for little given that Microsoft has the worst online gaming experience going, deeply regret buying an XB1.
