The next Xbox is in the works, it is not secret at Xbox boss Phil Spencer has already announced that that the team is working on architecturing it at E3 2018 conference. Talking about the details of what you can expect from the next Xbox, it seems that users will get better framerate and start time.
Microsoft has been much more vocal about their upcoming device even though we have not got any leaks or rumors regarding the specifications or any other juicy information. Sony has been dead silent about the PS5 even though we have heard that dev kits have already been sent out. The following is what Spencer had to say about the upcoming Xbox:
I think framerate is an area where consoles can do more. When you look at the balance between CPU and GPU in today’s consoles they’re a little bit out of whack relative to what’s on the PC side.
From this statement, it is safe to assume that Microsoft is aiming to provide higher framerate or a more flexible on. Either way, this is something that will be appreciated. The current Xbox One X is able to hit 4K 60 FPS in a few titles, the next Xbox might be able to pull that off even better.
Moving on let’s talk about speed. We all know that the Xbox One takes plenty of time installing games and loading them as well. Spencer had the following to say in this regard:
“I’m always wishing games would start quicker,”
I am pretty sure that there are thousands of people out there that wish the same thing as well. At E3 2018 we got a closer look at FastStart, but we could get an even quicker solution for these issues in the future.
I for one would like to be able to download the campaign of the game separately and have the multiplayer download in the background while I am playing the main story. That is something that would be appreciated by many people and while I am sure that is not s feature coming to the next Xbox, I can still hope.
