Xbox One GPU rumors shot down ahead of embargo

by William Schwartz


There’s been a rumor going around that suggested that Microsoft may not have given all the details regarding their GPU on the Xbox One. Some speculation has said that following an embargo expiration due later this month from AMD, Microsoft would reveal a much more powerful system than any imagined. The rumors suggested that the Xbox One could have an additional graphics processor as part of a design that has yet to be revealed by the chip maker.

If Albert Penello is to be believed, the Xbox One will not have any additional GPU.

“No add’l dGPU. Working on more tech deep-dives. XBO is plenty capable now and in the future. Perf. differences are greatly overstated.”

Penello also recently came out to explain that the power differences between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One had been exaggerated, which he reiterated in his recent comments on Twitter. Last week Penello said that there was more to the story.

“I’m not dismissing raw performance. I’m stating – as I have stated from the beginning – that the performance delta between the two platforms is not as great as the raw numbers lead the average consumer to believe.”

Unfortunately, that’s not going to be some super-secret GPU.
