Since the Xbox One X is part of the Xbox One and Xbox One S family, developing for Xbox One X does not require a separate build platform.

The Xbox One X is slated for a global release on November 7th. Sporting six teraflops of computing power and more than 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, the Xbox One will be the most powerful console ever created, according to Microsoft.

“With 40 percent more power than any other console, Xbox One X is the world’s most powerful console. Games play better on Xbox One X. It’s the first time we’ve engineered a system around today’s cutting-edge engines and the blockbuster titles you already love. With the 6-teraflop Scorpio engine, developers can realize their biggest worlds in vibrant 4K and in a superior format for 1080p screens. Built-in supersampling means more visible detail and smoother edges, and you’ll get into the action faster with more efficient loading times”, Microsoft’s official description for the console reads.
