Xbox One S Has Slightly Better eSRAM Bandwidth, Compute Performance, And GPU TFLOPS

Looks like Microsoft secretly snuck in some updates under the hood.

Xbox One S

The Xbox One Scorpio will be a complete overhaul of the Xbox One console hardware when it launches next year, but looks like Microsoft have already begun to incrementally improve performance of the console with the launch of the Xbox One S, the slimline redesign of the console that launches worldwide today.

As Digital Foundry reports, the Xbox One S has a GPU clock-speed of 914MHz, up from 853MHz in the original model, which is a 7.1% increase.The eSRAM sees an increase in its bandwidth accordingly to, now bumped up to 218GB/s. These enhancements and upgrades all seem to be part of an effort to make the Xbox One S capable of outputting 4K and HDR video.

“Some games (ones that utilize dynamic resolution and/or unlocked frame-rates) may see a very minor performance improvement,” said Microsoft’s Albert Penello, senior director of product management and planning to Eurogamer. “Our testing internally has shown this to be pretty minor, and is only measurable on certain games, so we didn’t want to make it a ‘selling point’ for the new console.”

Which is admirable, but I honestly think it would have been fine had they done it- especially since it almost sounds now like the Xbox One S is the kind of incremental upgrade on the original system that the PS4 NEO promises to be for the PS4, while the Scorpio seems to be a complete overhaul- almost a generational leap.

The Xbox One S appears to already be selling out, so it seems like there will be a lot of box One owners who will have access to the improved and boosted performance that it offers.

    “especially since it almost sounds now like the Xbox One S is the kind of incremental upgrade on the original system that the PS4 NEO promises to be”

    what are you guys smoking. Neo will have double the compute units, while X1 S remains the same. its only getting an improvement because of polaris gpu architecture and it being on 14nm

      I’m not a fan of the Xbox One (currently), but the Slim is what the product definitely should have been on original release. If Sony did it with more powerful internals, the One should have been able to as well.
      In this case, you are absolutely correct, this Slim is in no way similar to the NEO. It has more in common with the old circuit board revamps on the 360 line. The NEO will be a significant jump while the Scorpio will be absolutely massive (in comparison to the original POS One & Slim).

      Yup lol

    Great news the slim looks promising.

    Huuuuuuuuuuge gains! Barely makes any difference in most games!

    Pretty funny trying to compare this to any of the other 8.5 gen consoles coming too.

      Can’t wait for the embarassing Neo only getting 30FPS with dips like the embarassing P$4 at lower resolutions and with the same garbage textures and low graphics details, than the scorpibone even when that has garbage framerate as well.

      And then Nintendo curbs $ony once more with the NX just like 2006 now partnering with Nvidia to destroy $ony’s garbage consoles with no games. So many tears.

      “Huge gains”! Lmao. Gotta admit that is funny, Rat
