"It's a monster", proclaimed Xbox CEO Phil Spencer, and there's no denying that the new machine packs some serious muscle, running at 6 Teraflops with 12GB GDDR5 and boasting a custom 1172 MHZ GPU engine that kicks out so much heat it requires a vapour chamber liquid cooling system. If that sounds like a whole heap of jargon and gobbledygook, in layman's terms, this is the equivalent of a high-end, $1000-plus PC crammed into a living-room friendly console. Formerly known as Project Scorpio, The One X has been designed to deliver true 4K graphics and take advantage of the latest Ultra HD TVs. While you'll need a high-end screen to truly appreciate its power, Spencer was keen to emphasise that there will be plenty of benefits for gamers using 1080p TVs. A process they're calling "supersampling" and isotropic filtering means that games will look better, run smoother and load faster regardless of resolution. Released on November 7, global time differences mean that Kiwi gamers will be the first on the planet to get their hands on the new hardware. Microsoft confirmed that it will retail at US$499, and although it's yet to be officially confirmed, an Xbox source suggests we'll probably be looking at a $749 price tag in New Zealand.
