The most powerful console in the history of the gaming industry will go on sale 7 November. And while most gamers scratching their heads over how exactly Microsoft plans to sell Xbox One X gamers, the leadership of the Redmond Corporation firmly believes: when the players see the difference in graphics between multi-platform games for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Pro X, they will make a choice in favor of the latter. About the new big-budget exclusive games for its console, the creators of Xbox One X somehow tactfully silent.
The Central eight-core Xbox One X runs on the 2.3 GHz, the graphics system Scorpio Engine (joint development of AMD and Microsoft) gives the power of 6 teraflops and bandwidth of the graphics memory 326 is equal to GB/s. the Volume of GDDR5 memory is 12 GB. The system is integrated a special technology of liquid-steam cooling and centrifugal fan pressurization. Xbox One X also features an 8 GB of flash memory, and hard drive capacity of 1 TB. The cost of the new consoles Microsoft in the Russian market will be 39 990 rubles (€499).
Before marketing, Microsoft currently faces a difficult task: how to explain to people what is 4K, if 4K TVs have very few families. And it was on 4K and HDR is a strong emphasis in the advertising campaign of the new consoles. Leadership Redmond company is sure: the gaming community itself will distribute information about the new console through “word of mouth”. About it journalists during the exhibition Gamescom 2017 said the head of Xbox marketing Aaron Greenberg.
Greenberg believes that when you start to get games that support the full power of iron X Xbox One, and gamers will see “a true 4K picture in HDR-colors”, they will certainly be impressed. Then they want to compare their experiences with what it offers, the Japanese company Sony, the console which also displays a 4K image in HDR (though with chess rendering technology), and immediately realize that the Xbox One X provides a much better gaming experience. However, Aaron Greenberg openly suggested that the fight against Sony, Microsoft is not going, and she wants the players themselves decided which console they ultimately want to buy.
Recently, Microsoft stopped producing the original model Xbox One (the same fatty, which was originally sold bundled with Kinect 2.0). Therefore, the market will remain only a budget model Xbox elite Xbox S and One X. the pre-Orders for the new console were opened last Sunday and statistics show that American gamers are interested in acquiring a powerful expensive console. Xbox One X has already risen to second place in the rating of products of the online store Amazon. However, at the launch of the PlayStation 4 console Pro also holds a leading position in the ranking. In the end the market always wins the one who offers more interesting video games, but not the most powerful hardware at a high price.
