Microsoft's announcement of their Xbox One X made a lot of gamers excited for the future of consoles. Unlike Sony's PS4 Pro, the Xbox One X is a big step ahead of the Xbox One with six teraflops of processing power, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and 326 GB/sec memory bandwidth. While it will run the same titles as the Xbox One, it will be able to enhance them up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. As of now, there are 130 new and existing games that will be supported for “enhanced” gameplay.
While the console has already been on pre-order for the limited edition ‘Project Scorpio' version, the availability sold out quickly with Microsoft calling it the “fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever.” This morning, the standard version of the Xbox One X became available for pre-order with the only difference being the lack of any limited edition decals on the console or controller.
Pricing for the standard remains at $499.99 available for pre-order from the Microsoft Store and other major electronics retailers. Keep in mind, the official release date of the Xbox One X so November 7th, 2017 so any pre-ordered units will not be shipped before this date.
