Developers may have even more power than before to use.
Industry insider Pete Dodd revealed that the Xbox One may be receiving more GPU usage in the coming months. While the console currently reserves 10 percent of its GPU, that may soon be reduced to 2 percent quite soon.
Talking on Twitter, Dodd stated that, “10% reserved gpu getting turned into 2% soon. And with that, I’m on my last bar leaving Puerto Rico. See ya soon if St. Thomas has sprint.
“Gpu for that certain system had 10% reserved. 8% video. 2% voice. Voice will remain. That video 8% will be up to devs. As it should be.”
Microsoft had earlier increased the clock speed of the console prior to release, and reserved 10 percent of the GPU for the OS and Kinect. With this being reduced to 2 percent, developers will have even more access to power for development. What are your thoughts on this development?
