Xbox One X

If you’ve heard one thing about the Xbox One X’s power, namely that there’s a lot of it, you’ve heard it all. Microsoft’s “most powerful console ever” was built off having six teraflops of processing power, thus allowing a large variety of games to run in 4K settings. Of course, there’s still the debate about the number of native 4K titles versus checkerboarding and dynamic resolution but there’s more to the console’s GPU story than that.

For instance, when comparing the Xbox One X to the PC, which GPU does it most resemble? How can it compete when other components like the CPU aren’t as spiffy? GamingBolt spoke to VooFoo Studios marketing and PR manager Sean Walsh, technical director Mark Williams and 3D artist Ben Exell about the same. The team had worked on Mantis Burn Racing and was experienced with the Xbox One X.

“An AMD RX580 is probably the closest GPU in terms of real world performance to compare to the Xbox One X. It is hard to find a fair competitor, as the Xbox One X’s CPU does bottleneck its GPU somewhat so it could maybe perform better in a different use case. Also hardware pricing in the PC space does fluctuate a lot. But in terms of real world performance the RX580 is on par with the Xbox One X.”

The Xbox One X is currently available for $499 and while it doesn’t topple the very best that PCs have to offer, the results are still fairly good. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments below.
