I believe that's a 2×11 derailleur in the 2nd picture, not a 1×11.

The cassette is really the only thing anyone cares about. It means if you do a proper switch to SRAM 1×11 now you're not committed to a $300+ consumable part.

I wonder why this cassette should be 100+ grams heavier than the X01 cassette.

X01 is machined out of a single piece I think?

Would be interesting to know the MSRP of the cassette only. For a cheap cassette, it looks pretty good. A mix of X1/GX will probably result in a great performing/not obscenely expensive 1x drivetrain.
