Xbox One X review: A surprising amount of power in a very small box

Spread the love

The Xbox One X exceeds not only its predecessor, but also matches up to the majority (55 percent or more) of gaming PCs today—and for only $500. Pretty impressive, for a console.

In this video we go over a couple details like design and game compatibility, but most of it covers direct footage comparison from Gears of War 4. We put it head to head against the original Xbox One, Xbox One X both at 4k 30 and 1080p 60, and also a high end PC running 2 Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti’s.

Buy the Xbox One X from Amazon:

    I have one and a 4K TV and while, yes, there are not many new games coming out that are exclusives this year, this console breathes new life into ALL of your old games. I found myself playing Halo 3 again and having a great time. in 4K it looks awesome. It reminds me of how you think of games in your mind's eye, but this makes it a reality. I love this console and soon enough I'll have more exclusive games to love it even more.

    A $500 console that can run gears 4K @ 30fps or a $3k pc that can run it 4K @ 60fps… if your the jackass that wants to spend $2,500 more just for 30 more fps, your a fucking idiot. Talk about a salty pc fanboy.

    your vid is getting alot of dislikes…there is alot of "i'm not sure, I think, I don't know, etc." your camp as attempted to build the equivalent of the X which is ridiculous…you leave out components and the price of your build is still over $500 how the hell is that still equivalent….the X is a really good system hell you pc gamers keep trying to trying to build one…..I don't see any Ps4 Pro ..pc builds from you guys….this is sad…and I have a $2000+pc build and I have to give kudos to the X…its pretty good…..I would continue this very slight rant if any but I already dropped my mic…..shoutout colteastwood

    Pathetic pointless video.this guy is an utter joke!!

  • November 16, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    Here I was ready to waste some time on the way to work with some YouTube videos on reviews of the new Xbox one X.

    Only to have this ridiculous video pop up of someone calling it a fake PC and how it can't keep up with a F'ing computer running (2) 1080 cards. Dumbest video I've seen. Also love the comment "well if you have $2k-3k to throw around, a PC is a better choice"

    Maybe I can find some videos of someone comparing a Honda Civic to a corvette, and have them point out the corvette is a better choice. My PC has better specs than the one X, but I still prefer console gaming over PC.

    ps4 pro not as powerful but so fucking reliable, xbox x alot of them turn into a brick check it out

  • November 17, 2017 at 5:25 pm

    It's so funny that PS fans are salty the xbox one x is more powerful. I remember when they used to brag that the ps4 was more powerful, and now that the xbox is more powerful they say we have no exclusives. It's just funny they always have excuses?????

  • November 18, 2017 at 5:26 am

    Why do you say true 4k? It's not true 4k lol Xbox one X works the same as ps4 pro.. 4k enhanced format, don't forget the extra cost for the 4k TV to actually have it work

  • November 23, 2017 at 11:37 pm

    You need to turn dynamic HDR off. The brightness isn't like that once you go through the correct settings, I have a 65inch 4k tv and when I turned dynamic HDR on it was so bright.. there's actually a process to make it perfect through setting that xbox guide you through. How about you do that pal it's to bright.

    Did anyone else notice the framerate drop for the mega ultra pc running it at 4k 60 fps after the hammer of dawn hit? Maybe we gamers are getting a tad too picky? The x is a steal for that price specially for me as ebgames gave me a 200 dollar credit for my original.

  • November 26, 2017 at 11:09 am

    Gtfo pcnerd they have definitely stepped up and performs and looks amazing than your overpriced PC build for 1000 so stfu and stop hating

  • December 5, 2017 at 12:33 am

    People are obsessed with the size of consoles. I'm not. In fact I prefer the bigger consoles as they better built with more expensive materials. When they're downsized they're more cheaply made with less details. As us the case with the Xbox one X l got recently. Powerful yes but not as pleasing to the eye as some of the older XBOX ones I've owned.

    the garbage 2000 DOLLAR PC RUNNING "90fps" but is actually running at 60fps and still has dips down to fucking 10fps 6:31. im going to stick to xboxone x this corn ball hipster can keep his over priced piece of shit with garbage optimizations and huge fps drops. I rather play at 4k a solid 30 over 60fps 4k with huge fps dips

  • December 6, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    Yea let's compare a $500 console to a $3000+ pc and then say it doesn't stack up. Wow just wow!

  • December 13, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    You are funny pc is weak! XB1X is pc player dream! you will have to spend about 1000 dollars to get to quality of the X..let go the pc Xbox one x crushed it

  • December 13, 2017 at 7:21 pm

    My xbox one X blows some serious hot air out the back so give them plenty of room

  • December 19, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    Get more updates on this – I feel software upgrades are around the corner

  • December 26, 2017 at 10:56 pm

  • January 2, 2018 at 12:32 am

    No need to waste your money on expensive GPUs anymore, buy the One X and be done with the PC Masturbation race

  • January 18, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    You are sad to compare a pc to a Xbox one x really we don't have a graphic card do we we don't have a 1080ti do we are paying respect to computer gaming by pushing towards where they are and your comparing us your stupid and for you ps4 pro fan boys I use to be you your stupid as well how much you think the ps5 will be now that's funnie

  • February 3, 2018 at 4:51 am

    I have a Xbox one x, and I’m sorry, I just don’t see much of a difference from the regular Xbox one

  • February 9, 2018 at 2:37 am

    People keep complaining about "lack of games" like you could only play exclusive titles. Such a ridiculus argument.

  • February 20, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    Just not enough games on Xbox thats the problem but gears is my favourite game.

  • February 26, 2018 at 12:01 am

    What about Forza 7 or Wolfenstein? They were at launch. This guy is so Bias its not even funny. Pretty much he should of titled this video "Just buy a 2000 PC and PS4 for exclusives". Horrible! Xbox is giving you the performance of a 1100 PC for 500 bucks, without all the hassle of optimising drivers or calibrating video cards and its a 499 box. So your welcome

  • March 5, 2018 at 8:29 pm

    have fun paying $500 for a 2 year old gtx 1060….lol.

    crypto master race pc peasant.

  • March 6, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    seems like he had a few PBRs cuz he's talking nonsense like the bald dude did when they were trying to build a comparable pc.

  • April 9, 2018 at 1:03 am
