Not long ago, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One had benefited from a not-insignificant GPU clock speed improvement taking it from 800 MHz to 853 MHz, which may sound small but could pay healthy dividends later down the road as developers squeeze out every last drop of performance from the console.
Speaking at the Citi Global Technology Conference yesterday, however, Xbox chief marketing officer Yusef Mehdi revealed that the Xbox One has since received a second performance boost, this time improving the CPU speed, from 1.6 GHZ to 1.75 GHZ. Again, a small gain in the grand scheme of things, but every drop helps in the long run.
Mehdi additionally announced that Xbox One is now in full production and is well on course to launch this November in select territories, going on to say:
“This will be the biggest launch we’ve ever done by a wide margin in terms of units shipped at launch.”
With ‘full production’ ramping up relatively close to November, do you think Microsoft will get the Xbox One to market before the PlayStation 4 on November 15th in the US?
