Genesis Alpha One Dev On Whether Xbox One X’s CPU Will Be A Bottleneck, Talks About 12GB RAM

“Fidelity in visuals is already on a very high level.”

The Xbox One X is an amazingly made bit of hardware, one that has been beefed up in just about all regards to be a conclusive step up over the existing Xbox One… except for the CPU, which remains a bit disappointing in terms of how little attention it got relative to the memory and GPU.

There has been a lot of speculation on what the weaker CPU for the Xbox One X might mean- might it act as a bottleneck for the system? When we rasied this question to Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director on Genesis Alpha One, he stated that the system is powerful enough due to its GPU and the CPU shouldn’t be an issue at all. “No, GPUs are strong enough to provide amazing interactive experiences,” he said. He went on to add that graphics are now good enough that they will no longer be differentiators. “Fidelity in visuals is already on a very high level. In general, we think that players will enjoy games for their play mechanics and art design and (technically) for their framerate,” he said.

Jungnickel admitted that while his team hasn’t gotten to go hands on with the Xbox One X yet, they will be targeting for 60fps in 4K for the system with their game. He also confirmed that while they will try to deliver an equal experience across PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, the enhanced memory on the One X may come into play. “We will aim to equalize the performance in general, but given the memory advantage,” he said, before explaining what that memory could be used for. “The greatest benefit will be the possible usage of higher resolution and variety of textures.”

      What biased comparison. Idiot lies and lies….You didnt finish what the PC benefits brings to the table. A lot of people incorrectly believe that you have to spend upwards of $750-$1000 to get a PC fully capable of handling games. This simply isn’t true! These inaccuracies can be attributed partially to the highly vocal and misinformed masses
      Lets see my list
      -Build a mid range (rx 470(ps4 pro) , rx 580( xbox one x),gtx 1060 PC beating xbox one x and ps4 pro why? options
      -Gsync or Freesync depending if you choose AMD or Nvidia
      -PCs give you full internal and external control over the graphical fidelity triangle. Consoles can control neither.
      -PC GAMES CAN BE MODDED
      -More games, much larger library
      -More exclusive games
      -Healthy independent developer scene
      -Lots of free games
      -PC hardware offers better bang-for-buck & value than console hardware (same performance for less money, more performance for the same money, or much more performance for a bit more money
      -PC gaming as a whole is much cheaper than console gaming. Especially in the long run, it can be less than half of what a console will cost you. Hidden fees, price hikes, and royalties are abundant for gamers AND developers in the console industry.
      -PCs easily work with TVs and monitors, and even multiple of each.
      -Big Picture mode for couch gaming
      -PCs can play nearly every old PC and console game ever made, thanks to its tremendous legacy support, emulator availability, and GOG.
      – PCs can use nearly every console controller ever made, modern ones (PS3/PS4/X360/XO) work without even needing a USB adapter.
      -Using a modern budget GPU yields around 60 frames per second during gameplay with recent game releases. Consoles can barely reach 30FPS most of the time.
      -Gaming services and “social services” on the PC are completely free, even with online play (Steam, Galaxy, Desura, Mumble, etc)
      -Gaming services on the PC offer more functionality than what you pay for on a console
      -PCs have better better multiplayer support (LAN, 16x local multiplayer on the same machine with softXpand)
      – PCs can emulate almost any handheld and stationary console games using freely available emulators. Sometimes even at higher framerates, detail levels, and with better input than the original console permitted
      -Big Picture mode for couch gaming
      -Backward and forward hardware compatibility
      -Better price-performance than consoles
      -Higher framerates, resulting in smoother motion, physics, particles, and gameplay
      -Higher resolutions than consoles (such as 1080p, 1440p, 1600p, 4k, and 8k!) if your display supports it and you have GPU power you’re willing to spare.

      Mr Xrat you tried so hard… Yet another login with 10 upvotes from your fake accounts?

    • TheNorthFace

      why do all that when you can just buy the x?

    • john

      It certainly does not benefit me as gamer. PC does it all thank you. Enjoy your console sir

    • TheNorthFace

      cool, enjoy wasting thousands on a pc while the x runs games just as good through optimisation

      I read your comment in your voice and it was much better. I even chuckled a bit.

      And yet that PC will smoke the X on 99% of the games. And its going to be funny when the X comes out how many PCs you will be able to build for $500 or less that will outperform the X. Also lets wait for the DF comparisons before we start claiming that it performs better or will have as high or higher fidelity.

    • Sp4ctr0

      This is minimal reqirements for Forza 7 ultra quality 4K 60fps. You can choose PC for 1800 usd or Xbox for 500 usd

      Keep it up bro obviously a console fanboy. Try owning both a console and PC and you will see the difference. Yes I own a ps4 pro exclusives only. xbx is not running max setting for forza 7 4k60. Its running 4k60. So what is your stands here with that slide.

    • Cenk Algu

      Actualy it is running at PC Maxed out on XOX.

    • aawells07

      Not true. So how does it feel to be wrong?

    • A Verdade Ofende

      You are a dreamer

    • Learned Handgun

    • aawells07

      Proof or it isnt true.

    The GPU will still be a bigger bottleneck than the CPU on the Xbox One X in most cases. Especially with games running at 4k. The things that have a heavy cpu load such as sound, animations, physics etc are not really impacted by the resolution, but the GPU gets a lot more work. For example, in an animation the CPU will animate the bones which is not resolution dependent, but it is on the GPU to move all that mesh along with the bone and at 4k that could be a ton of pixels to update, but as far as the CPU goes it doesn’t care if it is 720p or 4k.

    • Sp4ctr0

      CPU on Xbox X is much faster than CPU on orginal Xbox or PC.

      It have integrated hardware dx12 command processor inside CPU. Xbox need only 11 cpu cycles to create single draw call on gpu. On PC you need thousands cpu cycles to create single draw call on gpu

    • incendy

      That puts even more pressure on the GPU. But that is a good thing since the Xbox One X has a pretty beastly GPU.

    Gamingbolt is most disgusting cesspool when it comes to MS fanboys on the net. They are the absolute worst of the worst.

    • doplerradar

      Actually I think of for PS fanboys. At least Xbox fanboys don’t have multiple accounts that they use to upvote themselves and other anti-Xbox comments.

    • aawells07

      Lmao says the guy that has 10 accounts and upvotes himself.

  • Mr Xrat

    An indie game the developers haven’t put on the Xbollox yet. Womp womp!

      The game runs on Unreal Engine 4 and is graphically impressive, looks better than 95% of the triple A games out there.

  • CPU is a bottleneck problem, more so for the PS4 Pro than the X… but a predominant weakness for both. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “weakness” for the consoles, but rather the weak link in the chain. Games on both platforms cap at 60fps, and in a lot of cases, can’t even pull those numbers compared to PC. This will most likely be fixed next gen… the real next gen. We got this 4k resolution thing covered for now. But after this, the new Xbox and PlayStation will have a CPU that can cure cancer with its computing power alone. For the time being, just enjoy the high-fidelity resolutions… at least unstable frame rates are a thing of the past at this point.

    • Mark

      We need that FreeSync poppin on console, with compatible TVs, eventually. It’ll fix this whole “higher frame rate issue” on console imo

    • Gotta wait for the Xbox Next and PS5. Caint wait to see what the problems with those next consoles will be though, lol… but I’m gonna guess download speeds. Games 5 years from now will probably be at least 200GB normal downloads and our console download speeds will probably be restrictive.

  • Mark

    Def a big difference. But would we see it that much at a distance? Guess it depends on the size of ur TV and sitting distance. Either way the 1X has clearly the upper hand on Tomb Raider
