Microsoft properly unveiled the Xbox One X yesterday and since then many gamers have been asking for a comparison between various consoles on the market. No matter how you look, the Xbox One X is by far the most powerful machine on the market. It’s at least 40% more powerful than any other device out there, that include the PlayStation 4 Pro. Take a look at the table where we break down all of the benefits Xbox One X offers above the competition, as well as the Xbox One S.

While the price may be it’s biggest deterrent, assembling a PC which can run almost all games at 4K UHD (3840 by 2160 pixels) for $500 is next to impossible. It’ll easily cost you over $1000 and you’ll have to deal with the fickleness of gaming on PC. Most AAA titles like Batman: Arkham Knight and Mass Effect: Andromeda are broken on PC and don’t support various GPU configurations. If markedly properly over the coming months, the Xbox One X has a chance to be adopted by many PC gamers.
The new Xbox One X console is not yet available for pre-order as Microsoft is waiting for FCC clearance. When it becomes available, you will be able to pre-order it here from Microsoft Store and here from Amazon.
