Microsoft were so kind and very generous to send over their latest Xbox One X console to both Alan Walsh and Tom Matthews to unbox and review in October. The Xbox One X is the world’s most powerful console, and has been built with three philosophies in mind – power, compatibility, and craftsmanship. Those can be found across the entire Xbox One X experience, and you can learn much more about the console and our final impressions in our in-depth review of the Xbox One X.
Both unboxing videos featured here walkthrough everything included in the Xbox One X Review Kit, which includes 20 digital codes for Xbox One X Enhanced titles, such as Forza Motorsport 7 and Star Wars Battlefront II, as well as Planet Earth II on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, and several membership codes for Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, Netflix, Spotify, and Dolby Atmos.
There’s also a booklet included inside the package that details everything about the Xbox One X system, including its power, compatibility, and craftsmanship, and of course, the console itself is included and unboxed! For our initial reactions of how good the Xbox One X looks, check out both videos. Alan’s unboxing video takes a more laid-back approach to opening the system, whilst Tom’s is far more “serious,” shall we say?
The Xbox One X boasts impressive specs, featuring a 6-Teraflop AMD Radeon-based GPU offering 40 customized compute units and 12GB of GDDR5 RAM that’s capable of delivering 326GB/s of memory bandwidth, as well as the fastest processor to be ever put into a console with 8 custom CPU cores from AMD clocked at 2.3GHz and 7 billion transistors housed on the system’s Scorpio Engine. These are the specs used to deliver the system’s beautiful 4K visuals and silky-smooth performance.
Xbox One X is now available in all markets where the Xbox One is sold for $499.
