Microsoft has unveiled its latest games console, imaginatively titled, the Xbox One X, ahead of this year's E3 2017 event.

Microsoft has finally revealed what it says is the "world's most powerful console", the Xbox One X. There is also a custom 2.3 GHz CPU, which means that the product will be more powerful than the Xbox One S and even the PlayStation 4 Pro, which features a 4.2 teraflop GPU and 911 MHz CPU.


Formerly known by the code-name "Project Scorpio" the console will be completely backwards compatible with other Xbox games and peripherals, potentially endearing it to current Xbox One gamers. Moreover, to keep the processor running without disruption, the high-powered innards will be kept in check with the server like cooling technique with the help of liquid-cooled vapor chamber. "A consumer can buy Xbox One S and PS4 for the same price", he said. Microsoft ultimately picked Xbox One X because it fit with the power message and the original Xbox branding. However, looking at the price of 4K gaming on PCs, the Xbox One X could be a bargain. The Xbox One X has 12 gigabytes of dedicated RAM, compared to Sony's PS4 eight gigabytes, by way of example, and a fairly whopping six whole teraflops of graphics processing power compared to Sony's 4.12. Speaking during the interview, he put the Xbox One X's lead over the PS4 down to the impressive hardware and wide roster of launch games.

During the demonstration, which happened a couple of days prior to E3 2017, the console hit 60 fps constantly at 4K resolution.


Sony -PS4 Pro, priced under $400 at Target. There were rumors in the industry that the Microsoft is going to launch Xbox with Windows 10 OS. Well, it looks like old original Xbox discs can be loaded to the Xbox One, which will then provide authorization for an emulated digital copy of the game.

Nintendo's recently-launchedTwitch, has won over fans by allowing them to snap up the console and a "Legend of Zelda" game that has become a popular must-play title amongst fans.
