Microsoft Announces Xbox One GPU Upgrade

Posted on Friday, August 2 @ 09:35:37 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One's GPU will be getting a boost, as the company has decided to upgrade the clock speed from 800 to 853 MHz.

Xbox One chief product officer Marc Whitten made the announcement on the Major Nelson podcast, saying, “This is the time when we’ve gone from the theory of how the hardware works - what we think the yield is going to look like, what is the thermal envelope, how do things come together - to actually having it in our hands." 

Whitten went on to add, “That’s the time when you really start tweaking the knobs. Either your theory was dead on or you were too conservative or you were a little too aggressive. And an example of that is we’ve tweaked up the clock speed on our GPU, from 800 MHz to 853 MHz. Just an example of how you really start landing the program as you get closer to launch.”

Do you think this will end up making a major difference in the overall grand scheme of things? I'm no tech wizard, so feel free to provide some of your own gaming know-how in the comments below.
