Xbox One X vs Xbox One S
Microsoft’s new game console, Xbox One X, was featured in the company’s E3 2017 event. The new Xbox console is described by the company as “the most powerful gaming machine ever.” The differences and similarities between the One X that will be on sale on November 7 and the Xbox One S we introduced last year are for you.
One of the main differences between the two consoles is the rendering of graphics hardware and full 4K resolution images. The Xbox One S has 1080p resolution support at 60 frames per second. But in the console all the games can not work at this level. The Xbox One S is able to scale the video resolution to 4K on compatible TVs. However, games do not support Ultra HD resolution locally.
The new member of the Xbox family, One X, offers 4K resolution support at 60 frames per second. The 40 customized graphics units in the console can run at 1.172 GHz. This is much faster and more powerful than the Xbox One S. The new console, like the Xbox One S, also supports HDR-compatible games.
Processor and Memory
As for the central processor, One X stands out as one of the S’s. The console houses eight customized x86 cores running at 2.3 GHz. The Xbox One S has eight cores running at 1.75 GHz. One X maintains the same dominance over RAM as well. Microsoft’s new console has 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. The bandwidth of your memory is up to 326 GB at the moment. The Xbox One S has 8 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32 MB of ESRAM. The bandwidth of these memories is up to 68 and 219 GB in a second, respectively. The numbers clearly show the Xbox One X’s superiority in CPU and memory.
All Xbox One consoles will run the same games. In short, a purchased Xbox game will be able to run in all three consoles. However, game performance will vary between models. One X versions of the games will have a higher resolution than the One S versions. However, there will be no difference in the basic game experience.
It can be said that Microsoft’s approach to this issue is similar to Sony’s approach with the PS4 Pro. All PlayStation 4 games work on both the PS4 Pro and other PS4 versions although Pro with 4K resolution support offers a better viewing experience.
In this regard, Microsoft makes it possible for One X to go out of the way with a large catalog of Xbox One games. One X can also run Xbox 360 games.
The Xbox One S was one of the first consoles with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback support. HDR display technology reinforced this support. Xbox One X will walk on the same way when it will be released in November. On-line video and music services will be accessible via the console.
It’s not hard to see that Xbox One X is a more powerful and advanced device than the Xbox One S and will perform better visually. However, the console that will be sold on November 7th has a price tag of $ 449 in in the US, indicating that Microsoft will deliver high performance for a high price. The price of the Xbox One S models in the US is now $ 249 or $ 299. The One X is preparing to offer its power at a higher price. It can be safely said that One X is the right choice for those who keep the visual experience above the budget or do not mind it.
