Posted on June 12, 2017

Microsoft came out of the gates sprinting with their E3 2017 presentation.

Announcing the Xbox One X as soon as the show starts. The Xbox One X will be Microsoft’s most powerful Xbox ever and the most powerful console currently available to consumers. The console features eight custom x86 cores, a GPU with 6 teraflops of processing, 12GB GDDR5 RAM, a memory bandwidth of 326GB/s, vapour-chamber cooling, and a 1TB Hard Drive.

In addition to being considerably more powerful than the Xbox One S, it’s also physically smaller than its predecessor. Microsoft has put in a lot of super impressive engineering into the Xbox One X.

All games will experience improved visuals on the Xbox One X and it’s not just for people with 4K TVs, games will be rendered at 4K and “supersampled” down to 1080p for a noticeable graphical improvement for users who aren’t yet using a 4K TV.

The console has been revealed to have an Australian price of $649 or US $499 launching on November 7th.
