The new, more powerful Xbox is named 'Xbox One X'

LOS ANGELES, California — The next version of Microsoft’s long running Xbox line of video game consoles is named Xbox One X. Microsoft detailed the new console during a press briefing in Los Angeles. It launches on November 7, and looks strikingly similar to the Xbox One S (Microsoft’s previous console).

What’s different about the Xbox One X is how powerful it is. It’s capable of powering 4K gaming, as well as 4K Blu-ray discs. It’s got “6 teraflops” of processing power, which means it’s far more powerful than the current models of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 — even the new, more powerful PlayStation 4 Pro.

The console is being touted as the most powerful game console ever made, and Microsoft says it’s also the smallest Xbox ever made.
