The Xbox One might have a weaker hardware compared to the PlayStation 4, but according to the Xbox’s director of development, Boyd Multerer, the design of Xbox One is effectively a “Super-Computer Design,” and it will allow the developers to squeeze more performance out of the Xbox One with time.

In an interview with Total Xbox, Multerer commented on the resolution controversy that is usually associated with the Xbox One.

“Part of it is the obvious one where everyone’s still getting to know this hardware and they’ll learn to optimise it. Part of it is less obvious, in that we focused a lot of our energy on framerate. And I think we have a consistently better framerate story that we can tell.

Boyd then talks about how they prioritized the CPU performance on the Xbox One, in order to get the best performance out of the CPU. While it may have not resulted in better resolution in games, he placed an emphasis on the frame rate calling it “smooth” on the Xbox One.

just ignore them tc. MS' only chance to make the xbox brand relevant was with the x360 and they blew it. Not even worth discussing this shit anymore.

When it comes down to it, the ONE will do just fine. Sony on the other hand.........................

Oh and almost forgot. LOL NDS thread.

If losing all the marketshare the 360 gained them last gen and having every game on their system look and run like complete shit.is considered fine.

80+ million 360's and 80+ PS3's were sold. PS4 is at 7+ million, Xbox One at 4+ million. Check market share in 5 years when numbers post price cuts, big name games, and the sheer length of time needed to truly assess things has passed. How can any adult truly say a gen is over after 6 months, without any price-cuts, when one console is only available in 13 countries compared to the other being in 33, when one company is posting massive corporate losses while the other is swimming in cash, and noting again its been only six months is completely beyond me. The PS4 is doing extremely well. No one can take anything away from that. The One is doing very well at 4+ million, being the more expensive model. Games look and run very well, hence all PS4/One reviews being the same. When reviews begin to change due to performance differences being so great, I'll then buy your argument.

Why is it using a weak x86 AMD CPU instead of a IBM Power7? Is it because it uses eDram instead of eSram? They can't spend a billion dollars like Nintendo?

Nothing more then a guy trying to sell the product he was hired to sell. Nothing to see really, as the facts are out and he's just doing his job.

Its funny when they do because the Xbox division has done nothing but lose money since they started it. Around 2 billion a year and investors are begging them to sell it. Bill Gates wants the new CEO to spin it off.

@jhcho2: you have to throw with something

there is nothing negative about ps4 so you have to go out of the box

Exactly.

The denial is still strong in the lems too even though they get proven wrong on a weekly basis. Post like foxbatalpha,blackace,and shawn30 are so ridiculous you know for a fact they don't even believe the crap they say..LOL

Maybe he'll give you a promotion.

Or a copy of Sunset Overdrive. Maybe Sony will hire you. You're already attached to their ass anyways. They might as well pay you.

#36 Posted by iloveatlus (252 posts) -

I can understand why Microsoft are denial, it's their product, they need to defend it at all cost. But why are lemmings in denial that the the Xbone is weaker? "Just wait for cloud, just wait ESRAM, just wait for DX12, just wait for second of the cloud"

Last gen, we had the Cows as the biggest clown on SW, and now we have the lemmings as the biggest clown, the sad part is that they don't even know it.

#37 Posted by Sushiglutton (5197 posts) -

So what if it has a "super-computer design". According to Mark Cerny the Ps4 has a PC-architecture that has been "supercharged". And as we all know supercharged >>>>> super-computer design.

#38 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Xbone is a weak POS. Everyone knows this even M$ and butthurt lems that are in denial over it.

#39 Edited by SolidTy (42025 posts) -

Just a bunch of PR. He can't say what he thinks.

This is his job: Xbox’s director of development, Boyd Multerer.

He works for Xbox, he's not going to sing praises about the competition. It's his job to speak good for his company.

He's Xbox Director and he is right about one thing, games are going to get better looking over time, duh...but that goes for any console over time. The limitations are there and we got to deal with it. That's okay, I bought the Xbone for high quality retail exclusives so I'm ready for whenever those pop out.

Maybe because the weakest console slaughtered in sales last gen, and the gen before? They knew they were stronger than their own previous entry. They didn't know what Sony was going to do. And on that, by PC the PS4 is not all that cutting edge. Its stronger, but the beginning of last gen consoles were much more comparable to high mid to high PC than they are now. People seem to be mad that Sony moved better on this part. Like how dare you NOT know what the competition is going to do?!!

Last gen, we had the Cows as the biggest clown on SW, and now we have the lemmings as the biggest clown, the sad part is that they don't even know it.

Probably because AMD, Intel, Microsoft engineers and several developers on the know, don't believe the system is as weak as everyone else does. We already know Microsoft hasn't told us everything about the system. Several developers who know has asked why Microsoft haven't said anything yet. So we'll see.

Never before has the weakest console been the most expensive. If Xbone was $250 or $300 nobody would care. The fact that it costs $100 more than a console that is 50% more powerful than it is what makes it a joke.

Well I haven't seen a game that shows me its 50 % stronger. And well, that's business kid. Companies charge what they charge. You don't like it. What I find a joke is how hard the cows go after this console. Human psychology is a real science, and its well known humans attack from a place of fear. Why are you guys wasting so much time on this terrible console for?

@cainetao11: that's like saying a lada drives as fast as a ferrari because the ferrari is not using his full potential.

it's already a proven fact that ps4 is 50% more powerfull than Xbone it's written all over the internet

The fact that all games minus battlefield run @1080p on ps4 should give you a indication.

Sony Fan talked specs 5years into last gen because they couldn't talk about games. Looks like this gen will be no different.
