Microsoft's new console was previously known as Project Scorpio, now the final name with Xbox One X has been determined. Microsoft is heralding a new generation of consoles with real 4K resolution in gameplay. The 6k teraflops of graphics performance should make the next Xbox a real monster and scare the competition.
Technically, this may well be true, but as with any console, the quality of the games should determine success or failure. Thanks to the concentrated hardware power, developers definitely have all options.
The most important facts about Xbox One X:

In the 4K trailer for the 7th part of the popular racing game series, you have to look twice to see if you are watching the current Formal 1 broadcast.

The Xbox One X will be released on November 7th, 2017 and is aimed more at hardcore gamers with its immense hardware power. You can find the video of the Microsoft introduction at the beginning of the article.
