Here Are The Xbox One X’s Specs

Xbox One X Specs has a nice ring to it. Maybe that should have been the name? Whatever, here are the new console’s specs, handily compared to those of the Xbox One S and original Xbox One.

You’ll see that most of the improvements come in terms of raw performance; aside from some new video codecs most other stuff remains the same as the Xbox One S.

Also, if you were wondering, there’s no direct Kinect input (like the Xbox One S, that will come via a USB adaptor), and to answer some questions we were seeing earlier no, there won’t be an external power brick.

Other fun facts: it’s slightly bigger than the Xbox One S, and also heavier than both the One S and the original Xbox One.


  • Other fun facts: it’s slightly bigger than the Xbox One S, and also heavier than both the One S and the original Xbox One.

    MS is claiming it’s smaller, but this goes both ways; The X has a smaller volume than the S, but a larger footprint. Both methods of measurement are important and meaningless in their own ways.

    • The volume difference is so marginal you wonder why they made an issue out of it. Anything to say “it’s MORE BETTER!” I guess?

  • Hopefully this new unit means a price drop for the XBoneS.

    Am not really interested in a Xbone outside of owning all the current gen systems and a couple of random titles, but nabbing one for a song is always a good thing.

    • How MS & Sony seem to be doing things is having an ‘entry level’ unit that is their current consoles, which start around $300-$350, and their high ends up around $600.

      Nice thing about Xbox now is with all the backward compatible stuff, you literally have two generations of good titles now.

  • Anyone know if Microsoft was intelligent enough to allow us to replace HDD’s this time around?

  • its almost there…. just need to strap a big cooler and OC those chips a bit more and you will have a PC

    • It already has water cooling.
      On top of that, this thing has 12GB of HBM memory.
      I don’t care how far up /r/PCMR you are, no PC around has that until AMD’s Raven Ridge APUs launch to the public.

      • GDDR5 is graphics memory… there is no HBM in this….

        and no this is low profile air cooling

        • My mistake, it is in fact a phase change [vapour chamber] cooler. Got caught out in the marketing lingo on that one.
          I know GDDR5 is traditionally graphics memory. Better bandwidth at the cost of latency.
          I’m not convinced yet that the system memory is actually GDDR5, though. Specs of the APU seems very similar to Raven Ridge [they don’t specify Jaguar cores any more], and specifying HBM would most certainly out the chip being in use.
          Using GDDR5 would be an odd choice for the main system memory. I’d like to wait until launch when we can see for sure what is actually inside.
