Formerly known as Project Scorpio, the Xbox One X is a significantly more powerful console that will take on Sony’s Playstation 4 Pro, with a more than fourfold increase over the Xbox One’s graphics capability, a 31 percent increase in CPU speed, and a 50 percent increase in onboard RAM (6 teraflops of computing power and 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM).
The new console is meant to deliver native 4K graphics at 60 frames per second, being aimed at those gamers with 4K TVs looking to take full advantage of their tech’s capabilities. However, Microsoft did also promise that the console will benefit gamers without 4K TVs too.
