    Makes sense Xbox One games running on the Xbox One X.. As for Xbox 360 games, I'm presuming that's by some sort of emulation. In any case, I don't know whether Xbox One X was the right name for it but I do understand the reason for the name was probably to signify its compatibility with the Xbox One/One S. The Xbox One S is very similar to the Xbox One capability wise, the Xbox One X however is signficiantly more powerful. The risk of calling it One X is that it doesn't clearly define exactly how much different it really is.

    Wait, am I reading this correct??? A GPU with 2560 shaders??? What gpu is this? I thought it was going to use Polaris 10 GPU with 2304 shaders... Does this mean that AMD Polaris 10 is not a fully unlocked GPU? Or is this a whole custom built GPU?

    Polaris 10 has 2560 shaders, but for some reason has never been fully utilized on discrete graphics cards.

    "Polaris 10 -

    2304 Stream Processors / cores, spread across 36 Compute Units. Though the silicone itself allows for up to 2560 Stream Processors if all 40 Compute Units are enabled."

    Yep,

    Rx580 has 36 compute units * 64
    New Xbox has "fully unlocked" 40 compute units * 64.

    That's pretty awesome for a console imo - also considering they can squeeze more performance from it then a Desktop GPU :)

    Might pick one up afterall.. hmmm.

    *Edit
    Doh, you just editied your own post with the same info :banana::stewpid:

    The most unimaginative name ever.
    They were sitting on Scorpio, a badass name, but no. I don't get it.

    I still find strange that the Rx580(or the 480) didnĀ“t come with 40 CU they could had easily beat the 1060

    The price is a very pleasant surprise. Now they just need good games to go along with the console...

    Ehhh I don't know...I thought $500 for a console is a little high...That is just me though.

    Yeah..but..an RX 580 is about half-ish the cost, and yet this is more then an RX 580, which still does not make sense to me.

    This is going to end up costing 600$ or more Canadian, very few people are going to buy it, it will not become mainstream and very few games will get fully optimized for it. The best you'll have is the same performance and graphics at a higher rez :) This will be true for the first two years at least.

    True but considering the specs of it i think the price is nice.

    Reserve 3GB for the cpu? Is thing thing a 32-bit device? That's hard to believe. Perhaps you meant reserved for the OS? I don't keep up with consoles, but that seems strange for this console. I would think rather that 12GB would be shared among the CPU and GPU as needed--depending on the application, game being run at the time, and that 32-bits would be emulated like it is in Windows x64. Sweet spot is probably 16GBs shared, though, I would think.

    Considering it's running the same number of cores as a 1080 the performance is awful thanks to the low clock sleeps. The 8 core Jaguar core carry over for a CPU is a joke. Good luck running 4,K @ 60FPS without hesvy hesvy optimization due to the awful hardware. A dual core i5 could do better than the Jaguar POS.

    I didn't see anything coming for it that isn't going to be available either on PC or PS4 Pro or both (both I own). So this is completely useless to me. The fact that MS and Sony are holding the power back of these upgrades ruins the IQ possibilities. If they would take the chains off of these games having to work on older systems as well, the focus could be strictly for the upgraded consoles. Making 4k a focus is rather pointless. The adoption rate of 4k tv's is still very low and the difference is negligible. I honestly don't see a big difference between 1080p and 4k with my Pro. HDR on the other hand, on/off shows much bigger differences. Especially in games like Horizon Dawn and Wipeout.

    They should allow exclusive titles for these consoles. With no backward compatibility. Then these machines could really showcase graphics - even if they were @ 1080.
