Hey everyone, welcome back to my computer and electronics blog. I was a really lucky guy and managed to go to E3 last week and it was amazing! I have never been before and I don’t think I will be able to go again for a while but this was the best electronics expo I have been to in a long time. As an Xbox fanboy who skipped out on the Xbox One as it was too pricey and has too many restrictions, this year Microsoft announced the news I have been waiting for; the new Xbox One X.
For those of you who have been living under a technological rock for the past six months, Microsoft has been talking about the new Project Scorpio that will be released with more power than any other console there is, and was supposed to essentially be the big middle finger that Microsoft has been wanting to give Sony since E3 back in 2013 when the Xbox One was revealed to have no game sharing before that was quickly changed. It seems that for once, the tech giant has stayed true to their words.
Dubbed ‘The World’s most Powerful console”, the Xbox One X is set to hit store shelves later this year on November 7th worldwide for $499. The console is said to have 4 times the graphic capabilities of any other console on the market, with an 8 core custom AMD CPU that clocks at 2.3GHZ and 12 Gigabytes of GDDR5 of graphic memory to allow native 4K game support. Whether or not the console will be able to perform at the quality Microsoft is promising is still on the fence, but many buyers will most likely get the console anyways just for the ability to play original era Xbox games.
