Just weeks before Black Friday, Microsoft unleashed the Xbox One X into the hands of enthusiastic gamers, showcasing upgrades across the board: more memory, faster processing, and robust graphics capabilities. As the Xbox One X closes the performance gap between console and PC gaming, its changes feel more evolutionary than revolutionary — especially since the Xbox One S is still an awesome machine — but the improvements in overall gaming experience and graphics are far from subtle with the addition of 4K native resolution and HDR (High Dynamic Range) support. Let's take a closer look at how the Xbox One X is making the future of gaming more accessible to the masses. Special thanks to Microsoft for providing a complimentary Xbox One X on release day so we could produce this review! Xbox One X Feature Highlights Updated exterior design 8-core Custom AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz 1TB HDD storage 8GB flash memory 12GB graphics memory 4K Blu-ray disc drive HDR10 support (High Dynamic Range) AMD FreeSync monitor support Larger memory bandwidth for faster load times Liquid cooling system for quiet operation Xbox One X Design The new Xbox One X is sleek and slim, following the minimalist design language first seen on the Xbox One S; though this time, Microsoft opted for a single-tone matte black finish, emphasizing the lighted effect of the Xbox logo/power button. Liquid cooling and a supercharger-style centrifugal fan now exhausts heat at the rear instead of the top, meaning the large perforated surface found on the Xbox One S is no longer necessary, resulting in a cleaner look for the Xbox One X when positioned horizontally. Included with the console is a matching matte black controller, and it's everything we already know and love, with the addition of a cool-looking translucent grey Xbox button, just like the ones you can customize at the Xbox Design Lab. +1 Back to Article Back to Article We're really happy that the Xbox One X still had room for an internal power supply among all of its upgraded hardware, eliminating the need for a bulky and unsightly on-cord power supply brick, a la the original Xbox One. With a slightly asymmetrical body and stealth buttons/disc drive, the Xbox One X has no problem being the main showpiece of any entertainment center. Xbox One X Performance The main talking point of the Xbox One X is its ability to play games in 4K resolution with HDR (more contrast; vibrant colors).

"Forza Motorsport 7" roared onto the Xbox One and Xbox One X with true 4K and HDR capabilities at 60 frames per second, but as the seventh installment in the franchise, does it offer enough innovation for those who have been faithful to the series? We put the latest automotive opus from Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios through its paces to find out if it's worth your time and money.
