Overall Take

The Xbox One X is more than four times faster than its predecessor, and the difference shows up best in newer 4K games for the console. Thanks to upscaling, even games played on a 1080p TV will get a boost in looks. While not all of its games can take full advantage of it yet, this is the most powerful piece of hardware in terms of raw numbers. In our analysis of 97 expert reviews, the Xbox Xbox One X 1TB Console placed 2nd when we looked at the top 10 products in the category. For the full ranking, see below.

What experts liked
Updated games might also get other incremental improvements, such as improved frame rates, more detailed textures, or faster load times, but none of those minor improvements are worth the high price of the Xbox One X on their own.

Despite not being able to play games in native 4K, these consoles are around half the price and look nearly as good.

Select games are rendered in true 4K UHD.

Microsoft also says the Xbox One X will use supersampling to downscale a 4K signal to 1080p so those who don't yet own a 4K TV will still enjoy the benefits of improved visual fidelity.

The Xbox One X is more than four times faster than the original Xbox One, so it’s capable of 4K gaming.
- The Verge

That additional horsepower means the Xbox One X can run more games in full native 4K than the Sony's console.

According to Microsoft, the Xbox One X can use "super-sampling" and various filtering techniques to make graphics appear more crisp on a 1080p screen.

Offering specs previously unheard of in a console, including a custom AMD GPU with 6 teraflops of power, this is a system that can deliver the promise of native 4K resolution for console players as well as High Dynamic Range (HDR).

Even games that weren’t Xbox One X optimized, running at 1080p on a non-UHD monitor, ran a little better on the One X than the One S.

Does things better than the Xbox One S, but doesn't do anything different
- BestReviews
This climate makes it especially difficult to recommend getting an Xbox One X over a PS4 Pro, not only because it costs $100 more, but because pound for pound, there are still more compelling exclusives and independent titles to be played on Sony's console.
- CNET

My biggest issue with the Xbox One X is a lack of stunning 4K games to really show why this is worth $499.
- The Verge

But it's also a bit disappointing since it's coming a year after the PS4 Pro, and it doesn't offer VR yet.
- Engadget

The $499 system is almost twice as expensive as the Xbox One S, but it could be worth the investment if you have a 4K TV with HDR and want to get the most out of playing games on it.

And Microsoft still needs to bolster its rather limited library of exclusive games to compete with the PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch.

Video clips taken in 4K show up at a lower resolution when you post them to Xbox Live.
