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.
