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. For even more on the console, check out our review which
