Coming as one of the best video games out there, or is it the best? I think it’s my best gaming unit though, don’t know about you. For those of my Naija peeps who are diehard gamers like I am, Xbox One X is one gaming console we should all get…like very soon.
It comes with more horsepower than any gaming system yet, and it sports more titles in native 4K that even the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro will get jealous. If you don’t plan to invest in a gaming PC, this is virtually everything you ever need.
Even with all the upgrade to the Xbox One X, it’s still coming as Microsoft’s smallest gaming console to date, coming a tad smaller than the Xbox One S. On the color, One X comes in matte black, and on weight its 8.4 pounds. Interestingly, it feels a lot heavier than you’d expect because even though the One S is a little bigger, it still weigh around two pounds more than the One X.
One X comes with an 8-core CPU that runs at 2.3 GHz. it sports 12 GB GDDR5 RAM, one terabyte hard drive and Microsoft offers an upgrade to AMD Polaris GPU with 6 teraflops of computing power. This makes the Xbox One an uncle to the PlayStation 4 that only came with 4 GB RAM and 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft’s console is faster, and the more horsepower it rides on makes it possible to run more games in 4K.
On its front, the console comes with a 4K Blu-Ray disk loading slot, a power button, one USB port and the controller pairing button. On its back, the console sports HDMI out and in ports, making it really easy to plug your cable box. Still on its back, the console has two other USB ports, IR out, connections for optical audio and gigabit Ethernet.
Just as we expected, Microsoft didn’t release a new controller, but it rounded out the controller’s seams, improved its bumper performance while adding a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sadly, Microsoft will be sticking with AA batteries.
The Xbox One X is expected to retail for $499.99, that’s around $100 higher than the PlayStation 4.
So, what’s it about this gaming console that comes as a surprise? Will you be ditching your PS4? Let’s know in the comments.
