I honestly don't know the xbox one potentiality performance wise!aside from not having enough interrupt for gpu and maybe a few thing that can read and write simultaneously,tiling can close the gap but ms doesn't have only this to close the gap they got donnybrooks on hand if needed ,remote differential compression etc ! I ll wait to condone ms xbox one ! why ? when was the last time you ever saw ms design a computer chip for their own intention ? IT NEVER HAPPEN ! ever ! they always use exisiting stuff! for them to go grab something and then optimize it for their own purpose and they didn't half ass this either , they use esram dual port in a ddr4 config ! this doesn't exist yet ! don't search nobody use this configuration .it is so advanced I bet even chip maket ask why did ms bother ! nobody knows or its under nda ! but ask your self this ! what created the last xbox popularity ? halo ! right ? yet here we are we have xbox one and halo isn't out ,and ms isn't in a hurry to lunch it yet ! doesn't it sound odd that the game that basicly made xbox popular is still a no show ? I suspect xbox as plenty of power . I don't know how ms plan to do the overhead on their server instead of the console ( a la mantle or direct x 12) but I suspect this is exactly what ms plans are ! xbox one is likely gona be the first thing to get ms version of mantle but it will likely be offloaded on ms server via remote differential compression or other toy ms has ! it is the only lily explaination that make sense ! yes ms isn't ready but I suspect they will be when halo lunch!
