Microsoft Reveals Its Project Scorpio Is 'Xbox One X' At E3 2017

During the conference, nearly every third-party game had some sort of exclusivity agreement with Microsoft and was running at 4K on the console.

The new Xbox One X gaming system will arrive with 6 teraflops of graphical power, which is more than its main rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro with 4.2 teraflops.

It's Microsoft's smallest console ever, even more diminutive than the sleek Xbox One S. That's all the more impressive when you consider that the Xbox One X is also the most powerful gaming console ever, capable of delivering smooth 60 frames per second gaming experiences at 4K resolution in some games, like Forza Motorsport 7.

In order to win back gamers and third-party developers, Microsoft had to prove to the world that every third-party experience is better on Xbox One X...and that's exactly what they did. Instead of playing games, United States owners of both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 spend roughly half their console-using time doing things that don't require a super-charged game machine, such as streaming video and watching movies on disc, according to a recent report from Nielsen that's charted here by Statista. The tech company is using a custom GPU engine on Xbox One X that runs at 1172MHz, a huge boost over the 853MHz of Xbox One and even the 911MHz on Sony's PS4 Pro. Nonetheless, Microsoft plans to roll out the Xbox One X console on November 7 across the globe, with a $499 price tag. At the time of the new console's announcement, the black design with 1TB storage is the only model available.

In addition to the Xbox One X, 42 games were showcased at the event, including Crackdown 3 (launching on the same day as the Xbox One X), Minecraft (which is getting full cross-platform play and 4K graphics), and Sea of Thieves (not untll 2018, sadly), all Xbox exclusives. As previously announced, the Xbox One X will contain a 1 TB hard drive.
