Xbox One S Launches New Performance And Features Videos
Microsoft launched its new white Xbox One S console, which is the most gorgeous console out there. It comes with plenty of new features for gamers, including a built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, with support for Ultra HD streaming from applications such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
Compatibility with high dynamic range video for increased contrast and a wider color gamut, and a performance increase over the original which Digital Foundry is showing you right here in the video below.
Xbox One S launched comes with a GPU clock-speed of 914MHz, and increase from 853MHz when compared to the original Xbox One console. This new performance provides a 7.1 percent increase and ESRAM bandwidth increases in line, taking that up to 218GB/s effective. While playing some games using the Xbox One S you will see no difference at all, while others will run noticeably faster.
Microsoft’s Albert Penello, senior director of product management and planning explains :
Some games (ones that utilise dynamic resolution and/or unlocked frame-rates) may see a very minor performance improvement. Our testing internally has shown this to be pretty minor, and is only measurable on certain games, so we didn’t want to make it a ‘selling point’ for the new console.
