Xbox’ Project Scorpio Officially Revealed As Xbox One X, Launching November 7th 2017 For $499/£449

Microsoft have taken to their stage at E3 and unveiled the Xbox One X, previously known as Project Scorpio. The new hardware looks very similar to the existing Xbox One S but in classic black, and without a vent on the top. It was also announced the X will be the smallest Xbox to date.

In that box, we’re looking at “True 4K” – that’s over 8 million pixels – HDR, wide colour gamut, Dolby Atmos sound and 4K UHD Blu-ray playback.

For those without a 4K display, unsure of the X’s benefits, we’re told that Xbox One game currently running at lower resolutions will still be given a boost, thanks to enhanced load times, and supersampling, which will make everything look “super pretty” (not an actual quote).

Scorpio Engine: With 6 TFLOPS, 326GB/s of memory bandwidth and advanced, custom silicon, the Scorpio Engine is the most powerful console gaming processor ever created.

Centrifugal Fan: A supercharger-style design which rapidly pulls in and compresses air, Xbox One X’s Centrifugal Fan is crafted to deliver maximum cooling with minimum noise.

Vapor Chamber: A first for home consoles, Xbox One X’s Vapor Chamber uses advanced liquid cooling to help ensure the Scorpio Engine stays cool.

Hovis Method: To maximize performance and minimize power consumption, Xbox One X uses the Hovis Method, a cutting edge digital power delivery system to custom tune console voltage.

Of course, all that fancy tech doesn’t come cheap, and Xbox One X will cost $499US/£449UK – twice the price of the current Xbox One S – when it launches on November 7, 2017.
