Today, during Microsoft’s Xbox Daily Live coverage, the house of Xbox showcased something rather special.

General Manager of Xbox Hardware Developent Leonardo Del Castillo assembled one of the newly revealed Xbox One S consoles from the motherboard up component by component in front of the camera, accompanied by Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb.

Del Castillo also does a great job explaining what each major component does, and why certain design choices have been taken. Thanks to him we get an extensive look on the inside of what is being dubbed as the most powerful console ever built.

Looking at all the components sliding into pieces certainly makes it easier to understand why the Xbox One X is the “densest” console ever engineered by Microsoft.

You can check it all out below, and if you want to see more of the Xbox One X, you can read the spec sheet and check out a batch of official pictures, or glimpse a couple of screenshots showing Final Fantasy XV running on the console. You can also read about the improvements Forza Motorsport 7 will get for Xbox One X, or those coming for Gears of War 4.

Xbox One X will be released worldwide on November 7th, and will cost $499.
