I don't think you read that entire article.....at all.
As for the "identical components:
"You can't do an exact 1:1 duplicate of an Xbox One X, thanks to a mix of Microsoft's custom hardware design and slow release of specs. This build is a fairly decent compromise between Xbox One X's main features and the cost of PC components. It runs games in 4K at a minimum of 30 fps on a Medium graphics setting, supports HDR, and plays optical discs."
As for their own conclusion of their $720 build:
"However, it's more expensive than an Xbox One X by $212 (or more, if you're bad about filing mail-in rebates). It lacks support for 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs. It uses a GPU that's still inflated in price, so currently you'll have to shell out more than MSRP or buy a graphics card with less memory. (For example, Nvidia's 6GB GTX 1060 instead of a 8GB Radeon RX 580.) It doesn't have built-in Wi-Fi support. It's not nearly as compact or small. And though I purposely left a controller off the build list (for PC gaming, a keyboard and mouse suffice just fine), you'll need to factor in another $15 to $60 if it's a must-have."
So yeah, 4k at medium settings, not quite ultra like what the majority of X games are running.
So lets bump that up to a $940 PC
"This upgraded rig nails the Xbox One X's main features: It should run games in 4K at a minimum of 30 fps on a Medium graphics setting, support HDR, and play 4K UHD optical discs.
However, like the first build in this article, it has its downsides. First of all, if you build this PC at this very moment, you'll pay an inflated cost for that RX 580 plus the RAM. This system is also much more expensive than the Xbox One X. At $940, you could buy the Xbox One X almost twice over."
Now we're close to $1000 for 4k guaranteed medium settings
Page 2 they show their builds trying to run games such as Gears 4 4k on ultra they couldn't even lock the frame rate at 30.
