Microsoft isn't too much further away from the release of its flagship Xbox One X console, the first true 4K-capable console ever. Our friends over at Linus Tech Tips have had some hands-on time with Xbox One X, with Luke giving the new console a teardown in the video below.

Inside, the Xbox One X rocks an 8-core CPU @ 2.3GHz alongside 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a GPU clocked at 1172MHz that's capable of 6 TFLOPs of compute power. AMD helped Microsoft design the refreshed APU inside of Xbox One X, so when it's compared against Sony's beefed up PS4 Pro, Microsoft comes out ahead in a big way with Xbox One X. More so when you consider Xbox One X also features a 4K Blu-ray player, while Sony gives gamers no options whatsoever for 4K Blu-ray playback... not even with an external drive.

Microsoft has engineered Xbox One X with a single 120mm radial fan that keeps the elaborate console nice and cool, with an easy-to-repair console that repairers should be breathing a side of relief at. Not bad, Microsoft - you continue to impress me with your engineering abilities on Xbox One X.
