At its annual E3 2017 conference, Microsoft unveiled the long rumoured Xbox Project Scorpio. The official name is Xbox One X and the all-new gaming console is expected to go on sale later this year, precisely on November 7, in black color and a price tag of $499. Included with the console are a 1-month free Xbox Game Pass subscription and a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold membership.
The current Xbox One accessories are compatible with the new console as well as all existing Xbox 360 titles and Xbox One games. To make that work, Microsoft is planning to use "super sampling" on the One X, making the new games look better even on 1080p TVs.
In terms of performance, the console is capable of 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro (4.2 teraflops). The custom GPU runs at 1172 MHz and the console also has an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive and 1 TB of storage.
