Project Scorpio has been on the minds of console gamers for the past few months, and Microsoft today officially unveiled its latest gaming console. The console is simply called the Xbox One X, which isn’t exactly as cool as Project Scorpio, but we'll let that slide given what Microsoft has in store graphically for gamers.

The console also doesn’t stray too far from the Xbox One S in design, and could easily be mistaken for its lesser sibling. While it doesn’t break new ground aesthetically, it’s actually smaller than the Xbox One S despite being billed as “the most powerful console ever made”.

Microsoft confirmed the specs for the Xbox One X, which it provided earlier this year:

  • Eight custom AMD x86 CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz with 4MB L2 cache
  • 40 custom AMD Radeon GPU compute units operating at 1172MHz
  • 12GB of GDDR5 memory over a 384-bit interface with maximum memory bandwidth of 326GB/sec
  • 6 TFLOPs of GPU compute power

Microsoft promises that all of your existing Xbox One accessories will work with the Xbox One X and it will of course support backwards compatible Xbox 360 games that are available on Xbox Live. Microsoft also says that the Xbox One X will deliver “True 4K” resolutions at 60 fps, and it unveiled Forza Motorsport 7, which will be one of the first titles to take full advantage of the console’s awesome graphics power.

For those that don’t have a 4K television, Microsoft promises that your games will look better and play faster on your 1080p set thanks to super sampling.

The Xbox One X will launch worldwide on November 7th priced at $499.
