Review: Microsoft Xbox One X

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

In a way, the Xbox One X is a time machine. It is built for an ultra-HD future,while enhancing current games available today. It is also bringing gamers back in time with the ability to play older Xbox games without missing a beat.

Microsoft's Xbox One X is being touted as the 'world's most powerful console,' the long-awaited gaming console definitely leapfrogs its predecessor and seems to be built for a 4K and HDR gaming future.

What makes the Xbox One X so powerful? Microsoft has built-in a custom 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz. This is backed by 12 GB of GDDR5 graphic memory. Xbox One X's GPU is capable of 6 Teraflops. A teraflop is a unit of computing that represents a trillion floating-point operations per second. Hit jump for a full review.

Unboxing the Xbox One X

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

I had a rare opportunity to try the new Xbox One X today. This super console is the most powerful gaming machine ever made. The spec sheet of this console is simply staggering. It has up to 40 per cent more computing power than any other console. It is designed for 4K gaming as well as HDR output on compatible Ultra HD televisions. 

Specs include an 8-core Custom AMD CPU is clocked at 2.3GHz to bring enhanced AI. It has 12 GB of RAM as well as 1 Terabyte of RAM. It is capable of six teraflops of calculation per second (a terfalop is composed of a trillion calculations).  This console will play Xbox One titles (and original Xbox titles as well) with less latency and quicker loading in full 4K and is likely tuned for future VR and AR experiences. 

What's remarkable about the Xbox One is that it is also the smallest console Microsoft has ever made, which is remarkable considering (it does feel dense and powerful, like a dwarf star). Microsoft Canada kindly provided me with an XBox One X review unit. My impressions, based on my unboxing, are that it is similar in size as the Xbox One S but feels more solid and is notably heavier.
