Opinion (backed up with facts) piece written by the guy in the above videos:
*Name is "XBox One X" - CONFIRMED
*The box itself will actually be SMALLER than the XBox One S - CONFIRMED
*Hard drive will not be an SSD - however, the increased amount of RAM in the system should allow loading times to be MUCH faster - see the videos above.
I know some people were disappointed that it's based on the Jaguar chip but - those people are dumb. It's not a stock Jaguar chip by any means, it blows away anything else you can get on a console, and this *should* hopefully allow them to keep the price of the box reasonable.
