The new Xbox One X is said to bring a new era of immersive 4K gaming and 4K entertainment to gamers and will retail at Rs. 44,990 in India on Microsoft India store, Amazon and Flipkart. Consumers can also purchase the Xbox One X from Croma retail stores and from over 100 gaming specialty stores in India.

We were present at the launch event in New Delhi and get a chance to experience the most advanced gaming console from Microsoft. Here's what we found.

Xbox One X is built for true 4K gaming. The gaming console has enough power to drive native 4K resolutions to supported TVs. What this means is that if you have a 4K TV at your home or office, you are bound to experience the best-in-class graphics with high dynamic range and wide color gamut, something which cannot be matched by existing consoles. Sadly, the demo zone at the launch venue did not have a 4K screen and we only tested the console at 1080p screen. The gameplay looked better even on a full HD resolution and offered smoother frame rates and faster load times.

Xbox One X is backed by a 2.3Ghz 8-core AMD CPU and has 12GB GDDR5 graphical memory that pushes content at 326GB/s. The compact gaming console has 1 TB HDD internal storage and utilizes a six-teraflop AMD Radeon GPU to render graphics. It even supports HDR 10. You also get a built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and Dolby Atmos support.

 Smaller, Faster and most feature rich Xbox
