Hailed as the most powerful console in the market today, the Xbox One X surpassed all expectations when it was launched back in 2017, and because of that, it won over a significant number of gamers who were previously loyal to the PlayStation franchise. The new console came packed with support for HDR gaming, Dolby atmos support for incredible sound, an Ultra HD 4K Blu Ray player that also makes it the ultimate entertainment hub. Stick around as we take you through a couple of reasons why we think the XBox One X is a very strong contender for the title of the best 4K Blu Ray Player, and why it is also guaranteed to deliver the best gaming experience you could get in 2020.
Why We Like It – Xbox One X
Playing Xbox games on the XBox One X console takes everything to the next level thanks to 40% more power, advanced 4K graphics, and dolby atmos sound. The console is currently ranked as the most powerful one around, but that might change by the end of 2020.
The XBox One X console has come a long way from the original XBox one, and this is evident in everything from it’s graphical prowess to its hardware capabilities. The One X ships with about 6 teraflops of power, which places it in the same league as a capable gaming PC, while making it a lot more powerful than the PS4 Pro. It’s also got a 1 TB hard drive, which allows for up to around 10 games to be saved on it. Courtesy of its support for 4K resolution, games on the XBox One X console look better than ever before. This is because gaming visuals will be running at a faster 60 frames per second. The same applies to whenever you’re playing a 4K movie through its Ultra HD Blu Ray player, while you have it hooked up to a HDR TV. You can expect the same kind of performance from the Sony Ultra HD 4K Blu Ray Player, with the only difference being that the One X doesn’t come with Dolby Vision.
For some people, the XBox one X design might be quite reminiscent of the PlayStation 2, but it is smaller than the XBox One S in terms of its volume, and a lot larger than the LG 3D Ultra High Definition 4K Blu Ray Player. It’s got the same number of ports as the One S as well, where you’ll find a HDMI-in port, an Ethernet port, and two USBs at the rear and the front. In terms of hardware specs, the new Xbox uses a 2.3Ghz 8-core AMD Jaguar processor, and a powerful 6 teraflop AMD Radeon GPU. With these kinds of specs, games look ultra realistic and heavily detailed, though you should expect even more processing power and frames per second from the XBox series X once it gets announced.
With the new hardware that the One X game console ships with, you’re going to want to be on the lookout for XBox One X enhanced games as only they will be able to fully make use of the increased processing power of the new console. This is not to say that you won’t notice a significant improvement when playing every game on it, but rather to emphasize that the enhanced games have been updated by developers to make full use of the new abilities of the console, thereby providing an immersive gaming experience. Games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Apex Legends are a few examples that can showcase the true extent of the console’s abilities, and you’ll be able to enjoy these and a lot more if you choose to buy in on the XBox game pass subscription service. For those who aren’t interested in gaming and just want a very capable Blu Ray player, the Panasonic DP-UB820 Ultra HD 4K Blu Ray Player might be worth a look.
