Microsoft’s Project Scorpio has been teased endlessly since last year’s E3, and this year the company has decided to give customers a little bit more info about the new console.
As previously reported, the Xbox One X runs on a custom Octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, and a 12GB of GDDR5 graphics memory. This is a huge leap from the original Xbox One, which used 8GB of DDR3 memory. The company showed off a number of games at their E3 conference, namely Forza Motorsport 7 which was shown running at a native 4k resolution at 60 frames per second. This is the closest the company has come to PC-level graphics yet, and we’re excited to see how it performs in the real world.

The company is announcing 40 different titles that will be available for the Xbox One X at launch, all which will also be compatible with the original Xbox One and Xbox One S, though Microsoft says these games will all run much better on the new console. Though the company isn’t showing off any of its wireless VR headsets at the conference this week, we do know that the console will be getting mixed reality support later in 2018.
The new Xbox One X launches November 7th 2017.
