Microsoft has unveiled its next flagship gaming console as a part of E3 2017 – the Xbox One X. Aiming to deliver 4K gaming at 60 frames per second (FPS), the console stands out among the competition as a high-end device to deliver a premium gaming experience.
Up until now, PCs have dominated the 4K gaming space and Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro has been the only console to deliver somewhat comparable visuals. Behind its bump in graphical fidelity, the Xbox One X is packing some powerful, first-class hardware and seen by the console's starting price point of $499 – you won't be getting it for cheap.
