Update: Microsoft announce Xbox One clock speed upgrade


Update: It's true. The new additions include a rebuilt and optimized graphics driver and the GPU’s clock speed changing from “800mhz to 853mhz.”

Original: It's being reported this morning that Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb and Microsoft's Marc Whitten will release a podcast detailing changes to the Xbox One's GPU.

The Xbox One will have a custom AMD GPU which is said to be similar to the Radeon HD 7790. What this means in real terms is support for 2 GB of DDR5 RAM, the ability to support 4K resolutions and has a graphics clock of 800 Mhz.

Well, according to a Gamespot Japan [via] report the hardware has now been slightly improved, with the GPU speed being upped by 53 MHz since E3.

Microsoft is apparently looking to upgrade the system as much as possible before launch, which is obviously good news all round.

If it is true, it's good news. If not, then, unlucky Microsoft.;

If it's true, it's a bit sad that MS seem to have no confidence in their machine. Constantly changing this and that, no confidence in their policies. Here's hoping they clean their act up Next-Next-Generation, as it seems they're fumbling around in the dark for their XBox1.

Seems to me they have more confidence in their machine, now they have the machine beta testing at homes they realize the machine can be pushed further. Also while I agree that the size of the xb1 is a bit bigger than I would like the cooling in there is obviously doing a good job. I fear that the PS4 will be more likely to overheat as it did at E3, I do hope not though.

I get the feeling Microsoft intended to launch next year but decided to release early to stop Sony from capitalizing on sales. The whole thing feels terribly rushed, we are 3 months away from launch and they are still changing the hardware. Xbox One GPU speed: 835 mhz PlayStation 4 GPU speed: 800 mhz Xbox speed increase will be literally unnoticeable, PS4 still has the advantage as it has considerably more GPU shader cores.

Can't really see 53mhz making much difference, then again PC enthusiasts will probably disagree.

That was a quick delete David, very impressive for someone with the mental skills and manual dexterity of a retarded baboon.

David, Gloria could get a new console if she wanted to, as could I, I just don't want one. (Btw the Wii U is "Next-Gen" so Gloria already has a "Next-Gen" console

Rubber dolls David? I sense some transference going on here, with your attitude to women I expect the only ones you've been with were inflatable.

To be fair David you did start it with this comment “ PikaNox you don't no nothing..... it true what they are doing..... Update: It's true. The new additions include a rebuilt and optimized graphics driver and the GPU’s clock speed changing from “800mhz to 853mhz.” ”

How can they announce a clock speed "upgrade" when they never announced a clock speed in the first place? Even with it the difference is not going to have any actual effect on how the games on the console look or run it seems, so what was the point? Just so MS could have a headline saying they've upgraded their new console's specs hoping no one would read further than the headlines to discover the new Xbox is still significantly outclassed by the tech present in the PS4? Seems like it.. and there's also the added fun of making any hardware alterations at a point when they need to actually be prepping the console for mass production is just begging for trouble. We've already seen what last minute hardware dickery did to the 360, and I doubt MS will want a rerun of the RROD saga next gen.
