As the Xbox One X is comfortably the most advanced console ever made, it has plenty of interesting additions. Microsoft was eager to point these console frists out at its event today. It seems much of what the company promised from Project Scorpio was the real deal.
For example, the processor is the most advanced ever. As the company promised, supersampling makes Xbox One games look even better on the X. While it won't push them up to 4K, they will look much better than on regular 1080p resolution.
The result of the specifications means Xbox One X is 40% more powerful than any other console.
Microsoft also announced that the console will boast a liquid-cooled vapor chamber. To put this into perspective, liquid cooling is reserved for server grade gaming and is only on PC. Yes, this is another console first for Xbox.
Packing all of this technology into a single console may have been tough. Considering this, Microsoft was especially proud to say Xbox One X is the smallest console it has ever made. This is a dazzling achievement, all things considered.
Xbox One X will be launching on November 7. The company says the launch will happen globally.
Since Scorpio was announced last year, it has drawn plenty of interest for its market-busting specs. However, one of the potential stumbling blocks was if developers would embrace the platform.
Microsoft has answered that at E3 today. The company is in the midst of showcasing 43 different titles on stage. This is the largest game presentation the company has ever showcased.
It is a clear message that Xbox One X has been embraced by developers and 4K gaming is truly here.
