Microsoft’s Xbox One X Review

Microsoft's new beast: The Xbox One X


The brand new Xbox One X is the latest Microsoft console to hit the market. It has been hailed by Gamers as the world’s most powerful console.

No matter how you view it, the Xbox One X is sleek and distinctive, but don’t be fooled by its sharp edges and dashing good looks. It’s more than just a pretty face. The new gaming console boasts a host of new features and groundbreaking innovations that are worthy of your hard earned money.


Games play better on the Xbox One X. With 40% more power than any other console, gamers can experience immersive true 4k gaming. This means you can enjoy games in more life-like detail. This is made possible by a 6 Teraflop GPU which enables gaming and characters to become more realistic than ever, with more detail and smoother interactions.


The console has more memory. It possesses 12 GB of GDDR 5 graphic memory which adds speed and power to the gaming experience. Performance is key, as it enables bigger virtual worlds, further horizons and quicker load times.

Microsoft has embedded an 8-core custom AMD CPU which is clocked at 2.3 GHz and a 326 GB/sec memory bandwidth to keep your gaming momentum flowing. All of this is in the name of performance.

If ever you needed a reason or were waiting for the right time to trade in your old dusty console for a newer version, this might just be it. The Xbox One X follows the release of the previous console, the Xbox one, which received lukewarm reviews.


Microsoft has truly unleashed a beast with this one. The Xbox one X is “Microsoft’s love letter to gamers” (Wired UK). You would do good to spoil yourself this holiday season or wrap it up in shiny gift wrap for someone else. You won’t regret it.
