Microsoft has finally launched the long-awaited project: Scorpio and the officially announced version called Xbox One X. Although the specs have been released since April, but until now, we have had a very specific and accurate view of the interface, configuration and strength of this project entirely.
The Xbox One X is equipped with a SOC system with six-teraflop GPU and an eight-core CPU manufactured by AMD and tweaked to work best for the console. The GPU consists of 40 units of computing and runs at 1172MHz. The CPU is based on a customized version of Jaguar architecture with all cores that will operate at 2.3 GHz.
The Xbox One X is equipped with 12Gb Ram DDR5, with 9Gb used for gaming and 3Gb for running the system. The Xbox One X will come with a 1TB hard drive and a UHD Blu-ray drive. All of the powerful hardware is cooled by the Hovas steam-cooled system, which keeps the machine running at minimum noise level because there is no fan system.
The XBox One X is Microsoft’s smallest console until now, even smaller than the Xbox One S. It is 5 mm thinner than the Xbox One S
Finally, the Xbox One X can work stably with some games at 4K resolution. Forza Motorsport 7 shows a 60 FPS and Metro: Exodus runs smoothly at 4K resolution. A number of new titles including Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, and BioWare’s Anthem have also been launched in ultra-high resolution.
Although there is no guarantee that these titles will maintain the frame rate while playing but even if the frame is dropped, everything is still acceptable. Phil Spencer has announced that Xbox One X has updated some exclusive titles such as Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Halo Wars 2. Some of the third-party titles will also be available.
The Xbox One X will be available worldwide on November 7 for $500 USD, £450 GBP, €499 Euro, $599 CAD, and $649 AUD.
