Xbox One X Enhanced Games: Here's What It Means

Xbox One X Enhanced Games: Here's What It Means

The Xbox One X aka Xbox Scorpio was revealed at E3 2017 by Microsoft. This basically means that it has to either convert current PlayStation 4 owners or convince current Xbox One and One S owners to buy what is essentially a more powerful version of what they already own.

We'll find out more soon, but it's likely that there'll be a difference between some games that go big on graphical flourishes that only the Xbox One X can produce and others that just replicate their PS4 Pro patch. Microsoft's upcoming product will also provide users with a higher bandwidth (326 GB/s, as opposed to 218 GB/s), which is essential for sending visuals to the display faster.

"We have the 4K blu-ray drive inside the S console".

As for the PS4 Pro, it comes with an AMD Polaris graphics with 4.2 teraflops of performance and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. Meanwhile, the PS4 Pro offers an 8-core 2.1 GHz CPU. Now, despite being tagged by many as Microsoft's most powerful console ever, it fails to deliver on one thing, virtual reality. The no-nonsense black box of gaming power is about as simple as it comes where the hardware is concerned, but based on the gameplay we saw at the Microsoft presser yesterday, the Xbox One X is now the most powerful console in the world, in terms of specs. "If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there". [.] There's not a ton of work developers are having to do to get to 4K, and then they can spend the extra headroom they have and time to flawless the game they want to build.

"Halo and Gears are both in good hands, and I'm going to pick exactly the word you used: I don't want to tease anybody", Spencer said.

If that's the case, why buy the Xbox One X at all?

Now that we know so much more about the console, can we predict how well it will do?

Xbox One X is a book of tales containing the same old stories only this time published on a watercolor paper.
