Microsoft has officially unveiled "Project Scorpio" as the Xbox One X. The system will be one of the first of a new generation of consoles targeting 4K resolution not just for videos, but for gaming. The One X will release November 7 at a starting price of US$499.

Microsoft's new flagship console, code-named "Project Scorpio" and long-awaited by fans, has been revealed at this year's E3 as the Xbox One X. One reason Project Scorpio is a big deal is that it's the first console allegedly capable of 4K-gaming at 60 frames per second — at least, that's what Microsoft says.

While consoles have been capable of playing 4K video for a while, playing 4k games at 60 FPS is no easy task — even for beefier gaming desktops. Thus, you can be sure that the Xbox One X has to pack some impressive specifications for a console, namely an AMD octa-core 2.3 GHz processor, a 40-core GPU capable of 6 TFLOPS, and 12GB GDDR5 RAM. The system also has native HDR support and a Blu-ray drive ready for 4K video. The storage options start at 1TB for the cheapest model — which is still by no means cheap at US$499.

The system is slated to ship November 7. Click the press release below to see more details on launch titles.

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
