So with the Xbox One X less then three months from Launch I was wanting to know what everyone else thinks about it. Microsoft says it will 6tflops of computing power. That would put it next to the gtx 1070 or the soon to be released Vega 56. But the ps4 pro has 4tflops, Yet it gets beaten in gaming by a g4560 and a 1050, Which has 1.4tflops. So if the XBOX is similar then it will be about equal to the performance of a 1050ti. Microsoft says it will be a 4k gaming box but if it really is equal to a 1050ti then all the games it can run will run the same if not better on the 1050ti.
With that being said i think this will be great for pc gaming. Since Microsoft said all of it's first or second party titles will be on the windows store along with the xbox store, This means we would be playing those games at 4k on lowend hardware. Since they would need to optimize the games for lowend hardware to run on the XBOX it would make sense that they would run well at 4k on something like a 1050ti.
Edit:That is what I think. I would like to know what everyone else thinks about the XBOX and how it will affect the PC gaming industry.
And yes the ps4 pro does get beaten by a 1050. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALoG2n-JSuc
Edit 2: The only reason I brought up tflops is to show they are not a measure of gaming performance.
