Xbox One X Vs. PlayStation 4 Pro: How the Xbox One X Stacks Up Against The PlayStaion 4 Pro

By LJ Joseph, Posted: 06/13/17 06:24AM EDT

Microsoft showed off the newest Xbox console on Sunday during the company's E3 press conference. While most of the key tech specs had been revealed two months earlier and confirmed by Microsoft, fans now have the full details on the upgrade to the Xbox One.

How The Xbox One X Stacks Up Against The Ps4

The Xbox One X is packing some serious firepower, with a custom eight-core AMD processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a 6-teraflop GPU with 40 compute units. Microsoft is proudly pointing out how the One X can support 4K HDR gameplay, according to The Verge.

Hence, when it comes to hard specifications, Microsoft has Sony soundly beaten here. Cnet reported that the Xbox One X has a faster processor, a more powerful GPU, and more memory than even the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Specifically, the Xbox One X has 6 teraflops which, in very basic terms, is how many calculations it can perform per second, compared to 4.2 teraflops on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Furthermore, the extra boost in RAM with 12GB vs. 8GB as is also pretty significant.

However, without some direct comparison of games on the two consoles, it's hard to say how much the extra speed and power will really translate to meaningful improvement in performance. At the end of the day, both consoles claim to be able to offer 4K HDR gaming.

Sony Still Have The Edge Over Microsoft

Based on that criterion, Sony has a $100 price advantage over the One X with the $399 Pro, which isn't exactly chump change. Moreover, it's worth considering a final piece of the equation, games.

Microsoft showed off the variety of new Xbox One exclusives at E3 this year, including "Crackdown 3", "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds", "Forza Motorsport 7", and a passel of smaller indie titles. However, compared to Sony's upcoming slate of "God of War 4", "The Last of Us II", "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy", "Death Stranding", "Detroit: Become Human", "Days Gone", and "Insomniac's Spider-Man" game, there's still a long way to go before there's a compelling lineup of games that you'll need an Xbox to play.
