Microsoft today announced that its new premium Xbox One X system costs $499 and comes in a single 1TB configuration. The new 4K box will be able to play games in native 4K on 4K displays with HDR, but only supports HDMI 2.0. Gamers can enjoy low-latency experiences on Xbox One X with FreeSync 2 display support, and developers are adding in key optimization enhancements to run games in native 4K 60FPS, such as Turn10's new Forza 7 game.

Xbox One X features a highly customized and tweaked 16nm SoC with a heavily customized 8-core Jaguar CPU at 2.73GHz, alongside a Polaris-grade GPU with 40 Compute Units, 1.71GHz of clock speed, and 6TFLOPs of compute power. 12GB of GDDR5 unified memory gives the console a hefty bump of system memory with 326GB/sec bandwidth.

All of these components sit in a small, sleek chassis that closely resembles the Xbox One S in form factor, but the Xbox One X is actually the smallest console Microsoft has ever made.

Microsoft's high-end Xbox One X launches November 7, 2017 for $499. Check below for a list of everything we know about the console so far.
