What makes this Xbox One an "X," you ask? It's got a faster CPU, way faster graphics and more memory. Microsoft says it's got 4.5 times the horsepower of the original, which allows it to play (some) games at 4K resolution at a smooth 60 frames per second.
Despite the size, you still get all the same ports in the exact same order -- to make it easier to swap out your old Xbox for a new one, says Microsoft. We'll take a closer look at these later in the gallery.
Let's dive into ports. Beneath the light-up Xbox logo power button (which is a physical button this time round, yay!) you'll find the only front-mounted USB port and the button you use to sync controllers. The included Xbox controller should already be paired.
Around back, the Xbox One X still includes the HDMI-in port to hook up your cable box or even another game console. But the bigger news here is on the left: unlike the original Xbox One, this bad boy has an internal power supply. No need to carry around an external brick.
While many devices are ditching the S/PDIF optical audio jack (aka Toslink), it's alive and well on the Xbox One X. So is a physical Ethernet jack for networking, and a port to plug in an IR blaster to help control your home entertainment system.
