The Xbox One has gone through its share of changes, but Microsoft’s new black box has received a few performance upgrades as well.
In an interview aired today on Major Nelson’s podcast, Xbox exec Marc Whitten shared that Xbox One’s GPU clock speed has been raised from 800 MHz to 853 MHz. In addition the console is now sporting its “mono driver,” a graphics driver that is completely optimized for the system’s hardware.
“You start with the base DX driver and you take out all parts that don’t look like Xbox One and you add in everything that really, really optimizes that experience, said Whitten. “Almost all of our content partners have picked it up now.”
How big of a role will these new additions play in the Xbox One’s performance? It’s really hard to tell. Theoretically an increase GPU clock speed could bring about improved game performances, but this remains to be seen.
