Scott Hart Xbox One X Preorder Have you preorded your Xbox One X yet? Are you planning on getting one? Should you get one? Is your Xbox One S good enough? Personally, I want one. The pre-order is happening now, pretty much everywhere, to ensure that you get one on or around the release date. From the 100s of reviews that are currently online, most people say that it is pretty amazing. Of course, there are going to be the people that are simply not impressed by anything. To add to my barrage of questions, what about the PS4 Pro? Is that good enough for $100 less? The new Xbox is going to be able to do some pretty amazing things, but can it replace your theater PC? This is going to depend on the user, but to remind you, here are the specs of the new XBOX: Tech specs CPU Custom CPU @ 2.30 GHz, 8 cores GPU Custom GPU @ 1.172 GHz, 40 CUs, Polaris features, 6.0 TFLOPS Memory 12 GB GDDR5 @ 326 GB/s Flash Memory 8GB Internal storage 1TB HDD Optical disc drive 4K UHD Blu-ray PSU 245W, internal HDMI resolution and framerate 2160p @ 60Hz AMD FreeSync HDMI Variable Refresh Rate (when ratified) HDR10 support Yes Content protection HDCP 2.2 Video CODECs HEVC/H.265, VP9, AVC/H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Part 2, VC1/WMV9 HDMI audio, encoded Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, PCM 2.0, 5.1, & 7.1; Dolby TrueHD w/Atmos¹¹ (from games) HDMI audio, passthru Dolby TrueHD (opt.
