Microsoft boosting Xbox One CPU, console now in full production
Microsoft to raise Xbox One CPU 150MHz to 1.75GHz; system represents company's largest ever launch.
Microsoft has revealed a hardware revision to its Xbox One CPU; the system is now in full production ahead of its November launch.
Announced by Xbox chief marketing officer Yusuf Mehdi at the Citi Global Technology Conference currently being held in New York, and reported by GeekWire, Mehdi confirmed that the Xbox One's CPU has been boosted a further 150MHz, raising it from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz.
Last month, Microsoft corporate vice president Marc Whitten announced that the company would be raising the system's GPU clock speed from 800MHz to 853MHz following earlier conservative estimates of the system's capabilities.
Though Medhi declined to narrow down the vague November shipping window for the Xbox One, the executive did say that the machine represents the company's largest projected launch to date. "This will be the biggest launch we've ever done by a wide margin in terms of units shipped at launch," he said.
