Although it's unlikely to hold onto the top spot for very long, right now the Xbox One X is the world's most powerful gaming console. That's because under its hood the Microsoft gaming console is packing an eight-core CPU, clocked at 2.3GHz, alongside 12GB of GDDR5 RAM. It also features a GPU clocked at 1172MHz, which leaves the console with 6 teraflops of graphical computing power.We know what you're think. Do we really need that much power?

Microsoft calls this heavily upgraded version of the Xbox One the world's most powerful console, and discounting gaming PCs, this seems to be the case. It follows the same logic as the PS4 Pro over the PlayStation 4, presenting an improved, 4K-capable gaming experience for a premium price.
