Specs Breakdown

Microsoft’s Xbox One X full tech specs

Check out the official Xbox One X specs, and see how it compares against the Xbox One S and original Xbox One.

Microsoft’s Project Scorpio has been revealed as Xbox One X, and it’s the newest, most powerful, member of the Xbox family packing some impressive hardware specs to deliver true 4K gaming and 4K UHD Blu-ray playback, HDR, wide color gamut, and premium Dolby Atmos sound.

During E3 2017, Microsoft officially introduced its new game console, which won’t replace the current Xbox One S or original Xbox One, instead, it’s just another, more capable version.

If you’re still wondering, below you can see the specs for Xbox One X, which it’s also compared against the specs of the Xbox One S and the original Xbox One.

You’ll notice that the major difference comes in the processor, graphic card, and memory. Of course, with such hardware, it’s also needed a bigger power supply, but it doesn’t necessarily mean a bigger console. In fact, Xbox One X is the smallest Xbox ever.

Similar to the Xbox One S, you won’t find a Kinect port, but you can use a USB adapter, and the power supply is built inside, it’s not external. You won’t find USB Type-C either on Xbox One X.
