Aaero Dev On Whether Xbox One X Is Powerful Than Most PCs: If You Want The Best Performance, Go PC

“There’s always going to be PCs out there that are at the cutting edge and surpassing consoles.”

Posted By | On 11th, Sep. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox One X will be the most powerful console ever made when it launches later this year- but as I am sure mostly everyone is familiar with at this point, consoles, even at their most powerful, very often trail behind PCs. And that will probably end up being the case for the Xbox One X, as well- while the sheer amount of sophisticated tech Microsoft has packed into a compact $500 box is admirable, there is no denying that someone building a PC unconstrained by similar budget or space requirements could come up with something far more impressive.

In general, Paul Norris from Madfellow Games, the folks behind Aaero, seems to agree with that sentiment, as he revealed in an exclusive interview with GamingBolt. When we asked him specifically about the Xbox One X and whether he thinks it will outpower most gaming PCs out there, he responded with the following.

“There’s always going to be PCs out there that are at the cutting edge and surpassing consoles,” Norris mused. “I think it’s safe to say that, because we’re developing for a specific system, developers get good results from consoles compared to PCs of roughly the same spec,” he added, referring to consoles  being better optimized for game performance in many cases.

“If you want the best performance you need to go for a PC. If you want value for money and to just bang a game in and get playing, consoles are the way forward. That’s my thing. I need to relax on the sofa and play in my spare time. I sit at this desk way too much already!” he added, pointing out the strengths of both formats.

Norris also expressed enthusiasm for how games, including Aaero, might look on the Xbox One X, though he did point out that specs like ‘6 TFLOPs’ are buzzwords more than anything else, and that for most games, programming is far too complex to be linearly proportional to spec increases like that.

“I’m excited about people getting to play Aaero in 4k. As far as my thoughts on 6TFLOPS of GPU… I’m not really technical enough to know what that really means for performance. Numbers get thrown around a lot but, in my experience, programmers will tell you that there are many qualifying factors that can change what those numbers mean in real terms,” he said.

That said, it is clear that the Xbox One X does look to be fairly well equipped to handle all kinds of games- now to see if developers leverage that extra power going forward.

    Xbox X isn’t fastest hardware…but is faster than 95% of PC on Steam Survey

    its like fast PC with GeForce 1070. Of course on PC you need also fast CPU because Xbox use fast hardware command processor which offload creation of “draw calls”. On PC all “draw calls” are created in software by “GPU drivers”.

      I look forward to Rapid Packed Math optimized games coming to PS4 Pro. Which should *mostly* level the TFLOPs playing field between PS4 Pro and XB1X.

      Of course “Console TFLOPS > PC TFLOPS because of better optimization. Most developers don’t optimize PC versions of games

      LOL this is a stupid statement only a stupid person would make.

      Teraflops is a objective measure of processing power. TFLOPS are the same whether you are measuring processor performance on a Raspberry Pi or a high end multi-computer HPC cluster.

      Software optimizations make the most of those TFLOPs but it doesn’t enhance TFLOPS.

      Rapid Packed Math will not level the field between the Pro and X you’re just a gullible fool if you believe that. Further more, you’re most likely one of those who trolled Xbox’ers about cloud gaming and here you are going on about this rapid math. Remember all the secret sauce trolling? Pathetic! Rapid math wont make up for an extra 4gigs of ram and a more powerful GPU.

      the “writer” seems to have been under a rock the last couple of months
      not noticing even one of the incoming X1X enhanced titles already
      announced!?LOL!

      There are several games that have no XB1X enhancements in the pipeline a big one is Destiny 2.

      MS has done a good job to court early support for Xbox One X, but if the sales of XB1X fall short of expectations developers may be gun shy to do any additional work for a platform that has a small audience. Devs may just port their PS4 Pro code to Xbox One X and call it a day.

      Remember the Wii U? The 3rd party support was strong at first and just disappeared. That was due to the small audience for that platform.

    • Pieter Kruger

      You are assuming that there’s no X1X enhancement in the pipeline for Destiny 1.5 just because they haven’t said anything? You dont think that’s got anything to do with Sony marketing deal? (I mean Bungie not even allowed to mention Xbox but have to refer to it as “the other console”)

      The X1X will undoubtedly outsell the PS4Pro, so why would developers port their PS4Pro code to X1X? In case you haven’t been paying attention it is much MUCH easier to port to/code for X1X. How many truly enhanced games have PS4Pro had thus far? Developers not really queing up to do it are they?LOL!

      All multi plats will look & play better on X1X than on PS4Pro, a $2000+ PC will obviously be your best option but untill next gen there’s simply NO touch in the X1X if it comes to value for money!

      It’s hip to hate on MS, we all get it, it generate clicks etc. etc. BUT MS has listened to gamers and developers and the X1X is the result. Not like the PS4Pro no one asked for, even with it’s secret sauce promised by Cerny…..

      @pieterkruger:disqus

      Read this and weep bro.

      You are assuming that there’s no X1X enhancement in the pipeline for Destiny 1.5 just because they haven’t said anything?

      Did I say that? — NO. You are assuming I am thinking that.

      You dont think that’s got anything to do with Sony marketing deal? (I mean Bungie not even allowed to mention Xbox but have to refer to it as “the other console”)

      I am sure it has everything to do with the deal with Sony which is a VERY good deal for Bungie / Activision. I didn’t hear many complaints from Xbox 360 players when Microsoft was negotiating similar deals with publishers and studios.

      The X1X will undoubtedly outsell the PS4Pro

      Where is your evidence of this other than your completely 1 sided point of view on anything dealing with PlayStation vs Xbox? Microsoft’s own press announcements about the Pre-Orders was utter nonsense. They said it was their best console pre-orders ever, but console pre-orders are a relatively new phenomenon and the Xbox brand is only on it’s 3rd iteration of the product line. They did not provide hard numbers — the only reason they would have curtailed that information is because it did not support the marketing messaging.

      If the Xbox One X had robust pre-orders do you really think MS would have been so coy about the numbers?

      The Xbox One X just may outsell the PS4 Pro — at the moment we have no data to support that. You are simply projecting your enthusiasm on the general marketplace. You have proven that you are not on objective observer.

      why would developers port their PS4Pro code to X1X?

      I already exaplined this to you, can you please keep up? My apologies if I speak over your head. 🙂

      If the Xbox One X does not sell well in the long term, developers will not opt to optimize games for Xbox One X. They may even opt to port the PS4 Pro code to Xbox One X and be done with it. If PS4 Pro has the larger install base developers and publishers would be keen to support that wider audience.

      In case you haven’t been paying attention it is much MUCH easier to port to/code for X1X.

      Xbox One X doesn’t have any major advantages over PS4 Pro in terms of development.

      http://gamingbolt.com/difference-between-xbox-one-x-and-ps4-pro-is-not-as-big-in-terms-of-development-streum-on-studio

      PS4, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X (now that they dropped the stupid and expensive ESRAM) are all easy to develop for. You are splitting hairs here bro.

      How many truly enhanced games have PS4Pro had thus far? Developers not really queing up to do it are they?LOL

      All games on PS4 Pro are enhanced. Not all have PS4 Pro patches, some games haven’t received patches but still have settings for PS4 Pro (IE: Ark Survival Evolved).

      PS4 Pro patches won’t require a huge footprint on your hard drive. They way it sounds on Xbox One X you are going to be lucky if you can fit 10 Xbox One X enhanced games on a 1 TB hard drive. Due to the 4K assets which will take up to 100GB (or perhaps more) chunk out of your drive for each title.

      There are plenty of games that do support PS4 Pro and more on the way. Some of these games support native 4K You should really do a little research before you open your uninformed pie hole.

      All multi plats will look & play better on X1X than on PS4Pro

      We will see. Xbox One X definitely has that capability but it depends on the developer. Certainly the boost mode on Xbox One X will be more robust, but that isn’t exactly taking advantage of all the enhancements.

      Then you have the issue of diminishing returns. Simply put just because Xbox One X has 30% more GPU processing power (TFLOPS) doesn’t mean the results will be 30% better.

      For proof of this I invite you to look over the differences between games for the PS1 and the PS2, PS2 and PS3, PS3 and PS4, PS4 and PS4 Pro.

      PS1 I can’t find the FLOPS want to see what you can find? LOL I doubt it you don’t seem like a very intellectually curious guy.

      PS2 – 6.2 GFLOPS or 0.0062 TFLOPS
      PS3 – 228.8 GFLOPS or 0.2888 TFLOPS
      PS4 – 1840 GLFOPS or 1.8400 TFLOPS
      PS4 Pro – 4200 GFLOPS or 4.200 TFLOPS

      Think of this as an amplifier for a stereo system. If you have a 100W amp and you want to play music TWICE as loud the 200W amp won’t do. A 1000W amp would be required.

      The great thing about the PS4 Pro is the Rapid Packed Math will *help* eliminate the TFLOP advantage that the Xbox One X has. I am pretty sure MS was well aware of this which is why they added the additional GDDR5 RAM. Sony simply won’t be able to “answer” that until the next generation.

      a $2000+ PC will obviously be your best option but untill next gen there’s simply NO touch in the X1X if it comes to value for money!

      $2000? You really think MS has created a $500 console that will keep up with a $2000 system? I bet by the time the Xbox One X comes out you will be able to build a competing system for less than $1000. Unless Microsoft is subsidizing the hardware there is no way their cost efficiency is that high.

      If people are shopping 100% on the hardware the Xbox One X will provide a great value. The problem is people buy consoles for games. MS simply has no more Xbox One Exclusives. Sony has plenty of first party studios that create games you simply can’t play on ANY OTHER PLATFORM.

      If consumers were driven by hardware alone the original Xbox would have sold circles around the PS2.

      Xbox – 20 GFLOPS — 24 million units sold
      PS2 – 6.2 GFLOPS — 155 million units sold

      Xbox 360 was eventually outsold by the PS3, even though the X360 had a year head start. The PlayStation Portable sold almost as much as the Xbox 360.

      Are you starting to understand the strength of the PlayStation brand now? You Xbox guys always make an issue of hardware and at the end of the day that hardware does not turn out to be the driving factor in console sales.

      It’s hip to hate on MS, we all get it, it generate clicks etc. etc. BUT MS has listened to gamers and developers and the X1X is the result.

      Is it hip to hate on MS? Didn’t Microsoft make their own bed this generation when they first revealed their Always Online DRM-BOX? Microsoft shoots itself in the foot. The reveal of the Xbox One was awful.

      Months before the reveal there were leaks about Microsoft’s plans and gamers were not down with their design. They didn’t change course. They went to E3 announced their system and people reacted the same way.

      Not to mention how MS wanted to make Xbox One a big fancy DVR box that no one was interested in. They had to do nearly a complete U-Turn just to keep their base interested.

      So how is it “hip” for people to hate on MS? I think they did enough of their own and deserve the ire of the gaming community.

      MS HAD to make a change. HAD TO! I notice you didn’t even mention that MS largely copied the PS4 design for the Xbox One X. Notice the lack of expensive and hard to code for ESRAM? Notice they didn’t use DDR3 RAM and used GDDR5 RAM? If Cerny is such the clown as you suggest why did Microsoft copy his design? If the PS4 is such a piece of crap — why would Microsoft duplicate it?

      As it stands now the Xbox One Standard is now the black sheep SKU. Just due to it being so different.

      Not like the PS4Pro no one asked for, even with it’s secret sauce promised by Cerny…..

      The PS4 Pro offers hard core PlayStation gamers an option to update. It was a brilliant move on Sony’s part and the platform doesn’t require sales to be as robust as PS4 for it to be a success.

      Rapid Packed Math is a real thing. The reason why Xbox idiots like you want to dismiss it is because it nearly erases one of the big advantages that the Xbox One X has which is greater GPU processing power.

      Please note the source on this news is not Mark Cerny or Sony. This is AMD the same folks that make the Xbox One APU (an APU is a CPU/GPU combo).

      Nice try. PS4 exclusives dont go straight to PC. Some are made available to streaming after a few years. You have to admit MS sure is making it easy not to waste money on an Xbox console. MS made a huge mistake in putting their exclusives on PC before giving the Xbox One X a chance to help sell their games. They should have just released their new console first before putting their games on PC.

    • zcar_driver

      “I see a lot of ps4 games are on the pc also” is all I said.
      I don’t know when or what games. They decide to put on the pc.
      Seeing how the ps4 is 250$ , if there were any exclusives I wanted. I would just buy the dammm thing. Use it for the exclusive single player PS4 games, and keep using my xbox for online games. It’s a little better crowd over there. With you being the expiation . Your ok lol

    I’m curious to compare Forza 7 on my PC and when I get an x1x after the holidays…. unless I cave and buy it early.

    I will be testing it on a 65 inch 4k OLED HDR screen. It’s going to be an x1x vs a GTX 1080, i7 5820k@4.8ghz and 32 gigs of quad channel DDR4.

    Yes yes my PC is by far more powerful, that’s obvious but the level of optimization that can be done on a console can produce shocking results. Look at uncharted lost legacy, it looks stunning at least on the pro.

    They can also get much closer “to the metal” on a console than they can with even dx12 or vulkan because on console every application is run with implicit trust. On PC they can’t allow the software and hardware to directly talk they always need an API obfuscation layer for security. You wouldn’t want some $2 steam game running malware off your cuda cores now would you?

    Good time to be a gamer regardless of what platform you prefer.

      Your PC will look better unless MS doesn’t offer many bells and whistles for ultra high end systems. I wouldn’t put it past Microsoft to “sand bag” their computer versions of their games from here on out just to make the Xbox One X look more attractive to PC gamers.

      I think that is why MS has taken such a risk with a $500 console. They hope to woo PC gamers because they haven’t had as much luck competing in the console market this generation.

    • d0x360

      You can think whatever you want but it’s not gonna happen. Microsoft has your money either way. They also know PC is always potentially more powerful than console so making the games run or look worse on PC would do nothing for them.

      No PC gamer is going to run out an buy an x1x because of such a thing. It’s completely illogical and paranoid.

      I saved for quite a while and have built my whole setup over time. Once I figured I could save $100 a month by not buying a redbull every day I started looking at other vices or things I just didn’t “need” that I could cut out. I also bought the tv the week AFTER the Superbowl and saved myself $1000.

      It’s amazing how quickly you can save up if you cut out simple things from your daily life. Another one I was shocked by was coffee. I’ve saved a ton of money just by buying beans and a grinder to make it myself instead of buying it at Dunkin donuts.

      So I just keep doing that even if I don’t have a something I’m planning on buying. That way when something I want that’s expensive comes around I’m ready. Also helps in emergency situations.

      End ramble! lol

    Hi guys. It looks like I need to build myself a pc to enjoy some good 4k gaming. Could anybody recommend a pc part picker build that can perform at the level of Xbox one X (many AAA games at 4k 30 and some at 4k 60, with high settings) for $500? I’m also gonna need a 4k Blu-ray player to watch 4k movies, and a 4k 60 capture card to stream games on Twitch. Please leave enough money to buy an Xbox one controller and dongle, or at least a decent back lit keyboard and mouse, since I want to play from my sofa in the dark. And don’t forget a legal copy of windows and a micro itx case that’s at least the size of the Xbox one s (which is a little bigger than the X). My entertainment center is a little crowded. I really appreciate your help. Looking forward to joining the PC master race!
    Many thanks,
    Your friendly neighborhood console peasant

      This is build for 1800 – but you can lower price to 1600 changing case model. This build have Blu-Ray 4K but I don’t know if this CPU is enough to decode BR 4K discs (probably you need at least Kaby Lake)

      You put a lot of work into that. Most Windows 10 gamers already have a decent enough PC to play Xbox One exclusive games at a more than suitable framerate.
      Lets just be honest, the included UHD player was a waste of money for MS, as it hasn’t been the deal breaker it was supposed to be, and I already have a wired Xbox controller for my gaming setup. Why would anyone with a PC spend the $500 to buy an Xbox One X? Just to sit on the couch and play with a wireless controller?

      I don’t remember suggesting any such thing. If you have a capable pc, you’re already a member of the master race!

    yep if you want better then the $500 xbox one x get a $1200 pc.thats what it will take to do 4k on a pc.

    but yet he didnt tell you how much a pc would cost so beat the xbox one x.

      That isn’t an honest statement. The $1200 PC won’t rely on Dynamic Resolution like the Xbox One X will. Some Xbox One X optimized games will utilize Dynamic Resolution (up-scaling). While that $1200 PC will deliver true 4K more often than Xbox One X.

      That 1200 pc also won’t run all modern games at 4k, won’t be same form factor, won’t have a 4k blue ray player etc. The whole article was based on a stupid question. The Xbox one isn’t the most powerful gaming device but it is powerful for a console and more powerful than most pcs

    The editor of this website is a freaking joke. I have read Google translations with better English. You guys just hiring hobos off the street with a middle school education?

    You sound like a 4 year old. Grow up sonny boy, get out of mom’s basement there is a whole world out there for you to explore. Maybe a lucky young lady will even turn you into a man.

    I’m getting sick of these PC vs X articles they only attract some of the worst trolls. Also, according to a Steam survey most PC’s are mid to low range anyway.

    PC’s are expensive, even when cheaply built and are constantly needing upgrades and maintenance. The PC community is also toxic and full of hackers who ruin the online experience for everyone else. And some people just prefer consoles for their convenience and simplicity.

    The X will edge out a mid range PC in power just accept it.
