Everyone already knew Project Scorpio was in development, which is now named the Xbox One X. Most of the specifications have been leaked too, but now we have firm details on its looks, release date and specifications.
Being released November 7th worldwide, priced at $499 or £449, the One X will be the most powerful console on the planet.
The new console will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft is using a custom GPU engine on Scorpio that runs at 1172MHz, a big increase over the Xbox One’s 853MHz and even Sony’s 911MHz found on the PS4 Pro. Microsoft is also shipping the Xbox One X with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies and entertainment, and 1TB of storage.
The One X uses specially designed liquid-cooled vapor-chamber cooling to maintain temperatures, something normally reserved for high-end gaming PCs.
One of the first titles for the new console is Forza Motorsport 7 which will run at native 4K at 60fps
Similar to the PS4, all games will work on the normal Xbox and the One X, but One X compatible games will get a boost in resolution, textures and load times.
