Xbox One X GPU Is ‘Nice, But The Exact Performance Has Yet To Be Seen’, Says Minion Masters Dev

“The exact performance has yet to be seen as with every GPU before its release.”

The Xbox One X is going to be the most powerful console ever made when it releases later this year. A huge part of the messaging around the hardware’s technical superiority has focused on the GPU. It is monster with 6 TFLOPs of processing power, far outdoing the original Xbox One, and the PS4 and PS4 Pro.

Developers in general have been fairly impressed by the new system, and the possibilities that it affords them- but of course, like with many others, there are a lot of developers waiting to determine the full extent of the GPU’s abilities before they pass final judgement on it.

We recently conducted an in-depth interview with Steffen Kabbelgaard, CEO of BetaDwarf, the developers of Minion Masters: Forced To DuelForced and its followup Forced: Showdown. When asked about his thoughts on Xbox One X’s 6TFLOPS GPU, Kabbelgaard stated that according to one of his programmers, the specifications are “nice” but the exact extent of its performance is yet to be determined.

“As one of the programmers told me, the 6 TFLOPs “are of course nice, but the exact performance has yet to be seen as with every GPU before its release”,” he said. “For our sakes, it’s allowing us to use physically based rendering comfortably, something we’ve been using before our engine supported it, so that’s perfect.”

So, does this mean that they will be targeting native 4K and 60 frames per second on the Xbox One X, given that they seem to be comfortable with the hardware?

“Given the strength of the GPU we definitely have those options, but as always with indie development things change quickly, so I can’t make any promises on what benchmarks we can reach,” he said.

Minion Masters: Forced To Duel will be an Xbox One X enhanced title. Stay tuned for our full interview with Steffen  in the coming days.

    There is only one thing that’s an important fact here:
    X-version = Ultimate version.

      Isnt that what it said on the box that the fancy game machine came in sweetie? The very, very, very best version of the game? Hilariousness!

      I bet you were one of those people that went through the roof when that idiot Mark Cerny announced the Ps4 would have RAM.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Do you mean that idiot Mark Cerny that designed the console that sold over 60 million units and forced MS to put out yet another more powerful Xbox, and still they have no games? Hilariousness!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/37fe0e73af34008f3fe43097742d385966df2fe29415d5fba81d9c05a3d83984.jpg

    • ReadySalted

      And then followed it up with the PS4 Pro and was also responsible for Knack 1 and 2. Yeah, hilarious! He got lucky once in four attempts.

    • zcar_driver

      Both Sony and MS put out powerful machines, But only MS was forced? What’s its purpose of the ps pro, if a more powerful machine was not needed by sony?

    • crizz1066

      Brilliant point but why waste your time with these xbox zealots.

    • Mr Xrat

      Yeah, people were expecting 4GB and it was changed last minute to 8. Remember when you were expecting Zen and Vega? Oh, whoops.

    • 7770777

      The only thing that I was expecting was the XBox One X to be a beast console, and it is. We arent talking about just a boost in RAM, the X obliterates every console on the market, not by a little bit, by a lot. Its being compared to high end PCs, and its impossible to build the PC equivelant of the X for $500.

      Before any of you PC haters start cobbling a build together, go ahead and put the cost of a 4K bluray drive, and vapor chamber cooling at the top of your shopping cart, some of you have a habit of leaving those out. No one wants to drop $500 on anything thats going to fry within a few months.

  • 7770777

    I’m looking forward to November. I bought a nice gaming 4K HDR tv a couple months ago. During the Summer Sale on Xbox I was able to pick up a slew of AAA games that are being brought up to 4K, which I’m purposefully not playing til November. I even snagged Final Fantasy XV, even though I don’t care for the anime art style. Also, recently picked up Madden 18, Destiny 2, and I have Forza 7, and Battlefront 2 preordered. With all of the talk surrounding PUBG, Ill prolly end up giving it a look as well. Should keep me busy til Sea of Thieves and Red Dead Redemption 2 in early 2018. I don’t think Ill be able to handle it all once Gearbox announces Borderlands 3.

    • Learned Handgun

      I also am waiting for a few games just for Xbox X enhancements. Resident Evil 7 and FFXV being the most notable.

      Really looking forward to Metro: Exodus and Wolfenstein. Those games are going to look ridiculously good on the X and my 4k hdr tv.

    • 7770777

      I know right? I underestimated 4K HDR at first, but bit on a reasonably priced 4K HDR screen that is rated well for gaming. After seeing some gameplay videos rendered in 4K HDR(99% of the 4K videos on youtube aren’t rendered in HDR)I was floored by the improvement over 1080p. Once you see it, you cant unsee it ya know.

    • Learned Handgun

      And just imagine how it’ll look on optimized games with 4k texture assets

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      LOL.Amazing. It’ll really, really look amazing

    • 7770777

      Ive only been able to find 2 raw videos rendered in 4K HDR of a 4K HDR game with full 4K assets on youtube, and they are of Forza 7. When the player switches to cockpit view, the game is photorealistic on my tv, you can even see the wires on the dash vibrating with the engine rev. It looks incredible.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      You mean cartoon photorealistic? As in the Forza’s super sharp, high resolution cartoon graphics would look real to a cartoon character? Calm down son, I know you guys are excited to finally have an Xbox that does more than 900p resolution, but you’re severely overreacting here. Its embarrassing.

    • Learned Handgun

      Don’t you have any super awesome PS4 games to play?

    • 7770777

      If you thought 900p vs 1080p was superiority then stay tuned to the internet because you are going to see the definition of 4K superiority.

    • Mr Xrat

      Another Xgimp who can only produce that face in one cutscene in a 2015 game to justify the blunder of the year Xbollox. Typical.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xgimps told me it as automatically a 4K 60fps ultra monster beast, though. No wonder Shiteon keeps telling himself that slightly less blurriness is worth the $100 extra and the derisive laughter he absorbs every day.

    • Sp4ctr0

      Maybe not 4K Ultra in every game but still Xbox is 5x faster than PS4

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0592e266fc6e1e1a88237ff6c15d88fcabfd7d3f372a311ddecb740659e5c119.jpg

    • Mr Xrat

      Why are you still, all these days later, comparing base hardware to a competing upgrade which will get held back by worse base hardware?

      When you’re stuck on trash like ARK which is still unoptimized and broken at
      “full release” you know things have gone horribly wrong for you.

    • 7770777

      lol Its you and your 20 fake accounts against the world huh MrXrat? Sucks that those fake accounts cant physically help your micropenis, er sucks for you I mean.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      That was weak. Sucks to be you.

    • 7770777

      Being a PlayStation fanboy you know all about weak. The X has a GPU equivalent to the Ps4 and Ps4 Pro combined. X1X 6TF = 1.8+4.2TF

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      yet even with all that power none of your games look better than Uncharted 4 on Xbox loool…
      Woohoo for you then 🙂

    • 7770777

      Uncharted 4 lol, Madden 18 is more photorealistic than that cartoon episode. Come back after you have seen Rise of the Tomb Raider 4K for the X.

    • Mr Xrat

      The 360 port barely looking better than the Pro version? Heh.

    • 7770777

      Dude I have seen Uncharted 4 at its Ps4 Pro sub-4K best with HDR on my tv, Rise of the Tomb Raider in 4K destroys it. This isnt a secret, the footage is on youtube for both games rendered in 4K HDR, anyone with a 4K HDR screen can watch them. It isnt even debatable, its blatantly clear which game is doing more graphically.

    • Reclaimer13

      AC Origins running on the xbox one x makes Uncharted look like a ps3 game. Especially considering the size and scope of AC Origins. Every inch of the map can be explored, you can climb anything and you can traverse one end of the map to the other without any loading screens. AC Origins will offer hundreds of hours of gameplay. Uncharted 4 is a weekend rental.

    • Mr Xrat

      Another cookie-cutter AC with another dead open world, just like every other AC game. Kind of a shame you’re duty bound to sell it but Phil doesn’t have anything else for you.

    • zcar_driver

      Just got my new oled tv, So yes slightly less blurriness is worth the $100 , It’s only $100 dude.

    • Kyle334

      You really need to get out more. How pathetic is your life if trolling websites making fun out of consoles is what you class as worthwhile use of your time.

      Seriously. Pathetic doesn’t even cut it.

  • Wei Feng

    The second GPU hidden in this model as well?

    • nojustno

      There is no second GPU, nor is there a second GPU in PS4 Pro

    • Mark

      Lmao. That’s a troll account

    • Mark

      Possibly, but time will tell. Hopefully it doesn’t take years like last time

  • crizz1066

    Still didnt stop Philly boy n team saying it was gona be 4K 60fps at the beggiing, which all but seems to have disapeared. Now looks like we’re being set up to except a drop in the supposed Xbox performance levels!!!!!! M$ do like to spin up their zealots dont they.

    • blakjedi

      Phil NEVER said 4k 60
      Phil always said resolution and framerate were up to developer.

      Your lies are showing.

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      he certainly alluded too.. you Xbox fans are getting pathetic with this now… lool

    • Kaywhy

      Nope he didn’t. You Sony nutjobs are getting pathetic, thus why you go into Xbox articles.

    • blakjedi

      No he did not. Please provide proof that he EVER EVER said 4k60. Also please provide Proof that he ever said developers have to use the power of X to make make 4k60 games.

      He and MSFT ALWAYS said its up to the developer to use the power of the device anyway they saw fit.

      Your allusion is an illusion. Dont let media gas you. Find the proof of your statement. Hint there is none

    • crizz1066

      As bilal says below they certainly alluded it to at the beginning, so much so that the Xbox zealots were lording tat all over, now yet again their story changes.

  • Kaywhy

    Indeed. I gotta be honest, really pissed that Sony sold me this PROtato that is incapable of even downloading and running 4k textures and assets. That is a massive $400 ripoff. The X is mine day 1 with the $ I get selling this PROtato.

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      dw bro… we believe you 🙂

  • Bilal Prince-Ali

    heyy broo… but i thought you had a PS4 Pro! you said that on your other comment… typical patheticness lool

  • crizz1066

    Where have you got all this PS4 stuff? Guess you think alot about it…… Wonder why?

  • Kyle334

    I’m looking forward to the new XB1X, not a fan of PC gaming so the new XB will be perfect for my new 4K HDR TV.

    Exciting times ☺

  • Coffee High

    Funny, a developer that makes 16bit games is skeptical about the XB1X’s power… Ha ha ha ha!

  • Charles Clarke

    The performance of the Xbox One original has never seen its ultimate performance either. It blows the doors off Sony’s even PS4 Pro but nobody uses the ES RAM right. Sony is a cheap piece of junk and the Wii of this generation.
