Ever since their creation, video game consoles have evolved from just playing video games to becoming the ultimate home entertainment system. The Xbox One X is Microsoft’s latest entry into that never ending contest. When the original Xbox One debuted in 2013, it was already an impressive piece of tech. This takes that tech and improves upon it – by a lot.
The new Xbox One X will feature a 2.3GHz processor as opposed to the 1.75Ghz processor in the Xbox One. Plus there’s a nice upgrade in the memory department as it goes from 8GBs of DDR3 to 12GBs of DDR5. And finally, it will come with a 1TB hard drive instead of a 500GB unit. All in all, it’s going to be bigger and badder while maintaining a more compact body to make placement easier.
The biggest point Microsoft pushed across the board was the whole idea of how the new Xbox One X will deliver true 4K, but what does that even mean to you? Basically, with the newer TVs out there, it will seem like you’re watching things in real time. Images will look so real that you’ll begin to question reality. Not only will movies and television look good but gaming should look smoother and more fluid. It’s all about how real can you make things look. The new Xbox One X should get you and your friends one step closer to jumping through the screen.
