With the additional power of the Xbox One X, we are able to deliver The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 4K, while providing numerous visual tweaks such as higher-quality shadows, ambient occlusion & texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures, and an all-around performance boost. – Jakub Kutrzuba, CD Projekt Red.

In the interveiw, CD Projekt Red, also has a happy note for those who do not own a 4K monitor, being that the graphics quality will also be visibly better even on a Full-HD monitor, thanks to supersampling.

To both those that have experienced The Witcher 3, as well as the ones yet to pick it up (highly recommended): the experience will be as good as it gets for console on the Xbox One X.
