Original Story, 6/11/2017, 2:56 pm PDT:

One year after Project Scorpio was announced during E3 2016, Microsoft has finally revealed that the new Xbox One X will ship on November 7.

The design is similar to the Xbox One S. However, instead of the white shell, it features a black shell and controller. It will pack a 1172 MHz GPU with 6 teraflops of performance power, 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, and memory bandwidth of 326 GB/s. (PlayStation 4 Pro's GPU can provide 4.2 teraflops, has 8 GB of GDDR5 of memory, and 218 GB/s memory bandwidth.)

The 16nm CPU (eight custom X86 cores), based on AMD's Jaguar architecture, features seven billion transistors with a 384-bit wide memory bus. The system will be cooled using a “liquid-cooled vapor chamber.” The Xbox One X is also the smallest console in Xbox’s history, with dimensions of 300mm x 240mm x 60mm. For the full detailed specs, take a look at the list below.

When you pick it up, all of your Xbox One accessories will work with the new console. The Xbox One X also comes with additional features such as Dolby Atmos, a 4K Blu-ray player, and super-sampling technology to bring your 1080p games to 4K resolution.

We’ll have more details on the console later in the week as E3 2017 continues.

    1) Awful name
    2) The focus on hardware instead of actual games for the hardware won't end well

    Am I to assume that this will arrive packaged in an Xbox One X box?

    You don't even need to remove the 'One'. The common abbreviation for Xbox was XB. And although I preferred XB1 as shorthand for the Xbox One, it's also valid to use an O. Hence XB One X = XBOX. ;) I like it.

    If there's ever a need to clarify you can just say Xbox One X or just One X.

    So basically an R9 390 crammed into a console. Pretty impressive.
