Do I need a 4K television to get the benefits of Xbox One X?
No. The power offered by Xbox One X allows developers to use techniques, such as supersampling, anisotropic filtering and others, to achieve a better 1080p image. In addition, games will run with more frames per second and faster loading times.
What is supersampling?
The supersampling technique is what game developers apply to improve graphics fidelity. Thanks to the additional power of the Xbox One X, developers can process images with higher resolution and then modify the scale to fit the screen resolution the player uses. The images thus treated reduce the aliasing and, in general, have a “sharper” appearance to the naked eye compared to the image without treatment and with identical resolution.
Will the controls and accessories that I have with Xbox One X work?
All Xbox One accessories (controls, headphones, chatpads, remote control, etc.) work with Xbox One X. Kinect for Xbox One is also compatible with Xbox One X with Xbox Kinect Adapter (sold separately).
Will there be two different versions of the games, one for Xbox One S and one for Xbox One X?
No. There will be a version of all games and it will work on all Xbox One consoles.
What does it mean when I watch an “Xbox One X Enhanced” game?
If a game includes the Xbox One X Enhanced icon, it means that developers have worked to improve an existing title or have implemented the latest development tools to maximize the power of Xbox One X.
In addition to indicating which games are Xbox One X Enhanced, we will also indicate which games play at 4k Ultra HD and are compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range).4
- 4k Ultra HD: 4K Ultra HD games must achieve a frame buffer output of 2160 pixels using native 4K or advanced rendering techniques, such as checkerboarding or dynamic resolution scaling.
- HDR: HDR games are compatible with the HDR10 standard.
- Xbox One X Enhanced: A developer has done a special job to take advantage of the 6 teraflops of power that Xbox One X presents. The improved features will vary depending on the game.
How will I transfer all games and settings to an Xbox One X?
Any Xbox One stores the games you have saved and the account information in the cloud, so when you buy a new Xbox One console, all you have to do is sign in with the existing account and download the games or games again. Applications you want. Progress, achievements, friends and profiles move perfectly to the new Xbox One X (or S). With an external disk drive, the process is even easier and the download will be faster: simply move the games and applications from the Xbox One internal disk drive to the external disk, and then connect it to the new Xbox One X.
Is the Xbox One X really the most powerful console there is?
Yes. No other video console has ever had 6 teraflops of graphics processing capacity.
What is a teraflop and why is it interesting to know how many Xbox One X has?
FLOPS is the acronym, in English, of floating-point operations per second. Tera means 1 trillion. Therefore, Xbox One X can perform 6 trillion floating point operations per second. Operations of graphic representation, to give movement to the elements of the game, things of that style. Simply put, games play better on Xbox One X because it “thinks” very, very fast.
