When the Xbox One first launched in 2013, Microsoft’s gaming division was in turmoil. But under the stewardship of Phil Spencer, the Xbox team has effectively corrected course. And with the Xbox One X, Microsoft is really pushing the console market forward.
• Xbox One X for $499.98 with $100 Bonus Dell eGift Card
Specs-wise, the Xbox One X is no joke. It features an 8-core 2.3GHz AMD CPU, 12GB of GDDR5 memory (326GBps), a GPU capable of 6 teraflops, a 1TB hard drive, a 4K Blu-ray drive, and support for 2160p and HDR output.
Upcoming games like Far Cry 5 and Sea of Thieves will obviously offer visual improvements on the new hardware, but a huge library of existing games has been updated as well. Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fallout 4, Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and many others look and perform better on the Xbox One X.
The older Xbox One S typically sells for as low as $230, but the 4K support is very limited. Sure, you can watch UHD Blu-rays or stream 4K video, but the games are still being rendered at 1080p or below. The Xbox One X is definitely priced on the high-end, but if you’re interested in achieving incredible graphical fidelity, this new console is still cheaper than investing in a beefy gaming rig.
