As per our Xbox Series X review, this console is seriously powerful, backward compatible and loads games super-fast. We also found that it runs cool and quiet which is great for long gaming sessions. We gave the Xbox Series X an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars backed by our Editor's Choice award.
During testing, we ran Gears 5 in 4K at 120fps on an LG OLED TV and graphics were realistic and smooth. Witcher 3 in 4K looked better than ever on the Xbox Series X. From the stitching details in the character's armor to the striking open world environment.
Besides stunning graphics, the Xbox Series X is big on sound. It features 3D audio and support for Dolby Atmos, Virtual Surround Sound with headphones, DTS:X, and Windows Sonic. This makes for an immersive gaming experience like no other.
There's no telling how long the Xbox Series X will remain in stock so we highly recommend you act fast.
