“Xbox One X was designed to be the best console to create and play games on, putting the greatest graphics fidelity in the hands of the world’s best game creators to create true 4K games,” Microsoft said in a post.
What To Expect From Xbox One X?
According to T2Online, The Xbox One X is touted to be Microsoft’s most powerful console and its smallest console so far. It is powered by eight-core custom AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 VRAM and a 6 Teraflop GPU, which offers smoother animations in 4K.It comes with 1TB of internal storage and the console uses a liquid-cooled vapour-chamber cooling technology.
The company earlier revealed that “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3,” “Minecraft,” “Resident Evil 7,” “Final Fantasy 15,” “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands,” “Rocket League” and dozens of other popular Xbox One games will receive free updates to take advantage of the capabilities of the Xbox One X.
Again, it is of relevant interest that Xbox One X’ competitor in the Indian market, Sony’s PS4 Pro is also retailed here at Rs 32,000. And in terms of the graphical capabilities, the PS4 Pro console supports up to 4.2 teraflops while the Xbox One X is capable of offering up to 6 teraflops. It has to be placed on record that the grey market in India sells this gaming console from Microsoft at around Rs 40,000.
Will It Stand On The Expectations?
Experts make a comparison of the type of games that the PS4 console and the Xbox One have. There are more exclusive games on the Sony gaming console which the ardent gamer seems to enjoy more. With the Microsoft product the games are available for PC also whereas Sony does not allow this with its PS4 and PS4 Pro models of gaming consoles.
Microsoft is also making available to its customers the facility to upgrade to the Xbox One X if they already have the older version or the Xbox One S by providing the 4K patch for the games already in your gadget. You need to just ‘enable’ the download for 4K assets.
