Following Microsoft’s announcement that the Xbox One will be sold without Kinect, the US-based company has confirmed that their next-gen system has 10% more power without the camera device.
“The additional resources allow access to up to 10 per cent additional GPU performance. We’re committed to giving developers new tools and flexibility to make their Xbox One games even better by giving them the option to use the GPU reserve in whatever way is best for them and their games,” said Microsoft in a reply to Eurogamer.
The increase in performance will be coupled with new developer kits which are being released this month. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, said the new dev kits will increase GPU bandwidth, giving developers “more performance, and new tools and flexibility to make games batter”.
“Just as we’re committed to making ongoing system updates for our fans to enjoy new features of Xbox One, we’re also committed to giving developers new tools and flexibility to make their Xbox One games even better.”
The Xbox One is due to arrive in SA in September 2014.
