Erm, GTX1070s are 7TFLOPS (because they run at their Boost clock - in fact many actually generally run faster than that) but also it’s hard to directly compare as the architecture of the processor (and these being theoretical maxes) between nVidia and AMD are quite different.

Luckily we can look at GCN based processors and those $200 AMD GPUs (RX480/580) are in fact almost exactly the same 6TFLOPS as the new Xbox One X announced. Again, modern GPUs generally spend most of their time at the boost clocks, just as desktop CPUs do. And clearly those are not costing anything like the sticker price for this entire console.
