Microsoft is likely to bring a unique boot up screen on one of the most powerful gaming console's to hit stores this year, the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X was unveiled at the world's largest gaming expo E3 2017. The gaming console is expected to arrive on 7 November and will take on Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro.
The head of the marketing team of the Xbox, Albert Penello, on being asked about a new boot screen by @AAWELLS07 replied in a positive way about the update.
Xbox One X runs on a 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, comes with 6 TFLOPS rated GPU, 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM and 1 TB HDD. It is also capable of rendering 4k resolution games at 60 fps as compared to the Sony's PS4 Pro. The PS4 Pro lacks in speed as it has 4.2 TFLOPS rated GPU.

One of the features that lacks in the Xbox compared to the PS4 Pro is VR capabilities. Sony's gaming console supports virtual reality which is missing in the Xbox One X. The Sony PlayStation 4 Pro 1 TB is priced at Rs 37,999 in India.
According to a report the Xbox One X comes with a vapor-chamber based cooling system that helps it to run for a longer duration without getting heated.
Microsoft has already claimed of selling all the consoles in less than 24 hours. It is available to be pre-ordered priced at $499. There is no word on the announcement of the gaming console in India but if launched will be priced around Rs 40,000.
