Microsoft Officially Announces Xbox One X (Project Scorpio)


Mr Spencer said older games would perform better on the newest Xbox - with specific updates in store for popular old games to optimise them for the beefed-up new console. Though we've heard these before, thanks to an in-depth Digital Foundry profile on Project Scorpio a few months back, it's worth going down the list again.

At E3 2017 Microsoft has taken the wraps off "the world's most powerful console", the Xbox One X.

Apart from its compact design, the new Xbox One X is 30% faster than that of the original Xbox One and the GPU is 4.6 times more powerful than the previous editions of the console. You also won't have to rebuild your game library or buy new accessories for the Xbox One X, as it'll be compatible with everything from the Xbox One.

Boasting Xbox's custom-built Scorpio engine the Xbox One X will be able to play video games in full 4K resolution with HDR at 60fps. The Xbox 360 did have some limited backward compatability for the original Xbox but rarely added any titles to it after the console launched.

Although some have expressed concern over the Xbox One X price, it's thought it could cause Sony to slash the cost of the Ps4 Pro as a result, perhaps to less than £200. The more RAM a console has, the more a game can preload at one time. Plus the games will run much smoother and in true 4K definition, which is great to know. It is smaller than the Xbox One S console.

The Xbox One X will launch worldwide on 7 November 2017, according to Pocket.

The console comes with an 8-core custom AMD CPU and a 6 Teraflop GPU, enabling 4K environments and characters "to become more realistic than ever" with more detail and smoother animations.
