Microsoft’s new console Xbox One S was being discussed earlier today by the planning head during E3.
Xbox One S Won’t Improve Game Performance, clears Microsoft
During his interview with the Eurogamer, the Xbox planning head Albert Penello has confirmed that the additional CPU and GPU and changes in the new Xbox One S are for the developers to enable HDR. Having said that, he further stated that the performance on both the consoles will be ”identical” and there will be “no impact” on game’s performance after the changes made in the new console.
“When we made changes to the box for 4K we unlocked a little bit more processing power to enable HDR. That’s it. It’s exactly the same architecture as the existing one.
To support HDR, we give people access to a little more CPU and GPU. That’s it. It is so insignificant it is mind boggling it is being picked up.”
Earlier, it was speculated that the upcoming Gears of War 4 will perform better on the Xbox One S than the standard Xbox One. During the presentation, when Penello was asked about the performance, he said;
“I promise, it won’t even show up. It will have no impact on games at all. Literally no impact. They will be identical. It’s nothing, it is literally nothing.”
The new HDR enabled Xbox One S will be available Worldwide by August this year. The console was announced two days ago with complete details revealed during the presentation.
