WHY THE XBOX ONE X WILL RESHAPE THE FUTURE OF CONSOLE GAMING
1 It’s powerful
The Xbox One X is a real beast of a gaming machine: a total of eight 2.3GHz processor cores pair with a six-tera flop graphics processor, together with 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. All that power essentially means that the Xbox One X will be blisteringly quick, able to run Forza Motorsport 7 at native 4K and still have more than 30% of its processing power to spare.
2 It’ll have 4K games
With all that power, the new Xbox One X will be able to deliver full 4K content - including games. There’s a 4K UHD Blu-ray player on-board, too, but it’s the option to serve up 4K HDR that’s properly exciting. The PS4 Pro runs a few games in native 4K, but uses trickery and upscaling to achieve it. That’s not the case for the Xbox One X, it’ll have more than enough power for native 4K.
3 Legacy Xbox One games will look spectacular
Where Sony’s top console switches half of its power off when running older games, Xbox One X uses all of its power even on Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles. That should mean frame rates that never falter from their maximum, and dynamic drops in resolution shouldn’t ever be necessary. That’ll be a big bonus even for gamers without a 4K screen.
