Framerate… Loading time… Xbox Series X is good for our old games.
In recent days, several newsrooms around the world have been able to get their hands on the Series X. Our friends at Digital Foundry have the beast in their premises, and have had fun launching various productions to do some interesting analysis. In the viewfinder? Retro compatibility! In addition to the framerate, and just like The Verge and GameSpot, the team tested the loading times. To put it simply and in three words: it goes fast!
Also, as you’ll see, most tracks, like Rising of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV, Dead or Alive 6, or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, run in 60 frames per second constantly. But our colleagues don’t stop there and have inserted the Xbox 360 patty of GTA IV. Race results? The title wobbles around 30 fps on Xbox 360, within 40/50 fps on Xbox One X, and runs in 60 fps without falling on Xbox Series X.
The Series X release date is November 10, 2020. Although pre-orders are complete (for now).
