Are you sure you are running those games with the enhanced patches? Because the patches have only just started to appear to work for some. The latest patches don't mean 4k, as some have dropped in the last few days that are not 4k.

Origins and WW2, in particular, are odd. Some sites have put up comparisons BEFORE the patch, which has fooled a lot of people. But after the patch has been installed, the differences are night and day.

Something is wrong there...

You could very well be right. I let the thing download and update overnight have only played with it a couple of hours this morning.

I dont want anyone thinking I am putting this machine down because I absolutely love it because I wanted the upgrade from the S.

Just tossing it out there that people thinking this X would decimate the Pro I think will be in for a surprise.

Nicely done upscale 4k looks really nice even sitting next to native 4k.

Oh and one other thing, both WW2 and Origins, even with the 4k patch, don't install additional texture assets. They are hardly the benchmark of what this can do.

Look for games that do install extra higher res textures, of which there should be lots coming up.

I have a few questions that need to be answered before I buy an X1X:

1. Is the interface faster? (The most annoying thing about the Xbox One has been the laggy interface)
ANSWER: YES The faster CPU and memory bandwidth and CPU speed seems to have made everything snappier. On top of that, the newest OS update sped up everything. Good job Microsoft.

2. Are the loading times faster?
ANSWER: YES
It looks like they are 20 to 40 percent faster, depending on the game a good sign.

3. Does the system take advantage of a SSD? (Previous consoles of this gen had a severely bottlenecked hard drive interface)
ANSWER: We don't know yet. Hopefully someone tests a internal SSD swap soon and a USB attached SSD vs. the same drives on a OG XB1.

4. Improvement in games. (The is honestly the least important part for me)
ANSWER: HUGE YES (This thing not only boosts XB1 games, but 360 BC ones also, all without needing a patch. The 4K Ultra PC textures on anything new are fantastic)

So, I'm right on the edge of trading in my OG XB1. Just need a decent word on how it works with SSDs, internal and external.

As of right now almost 10:00 EST both games are patched and up to date does this mean there is another patch coming for either game? I dont know.

I guess my post came across wrong as both games look amazing in 4k there is no doubt there and having been a gamer my whole life yes I can see differences in the X and Pro.

Just saying those differences are not mind blowing granted my 2 Samsung 4k monitors are not the latest greatest tech out there.

Going to be testing today and recording in 4k when I play on my LG Signature 65" 4k TV later today.

Maybe I will hold off for a couple of days and let these patches roll in, thank you for the heads up.

I wouldn't toss that out there based on two games that don't even have texture upgrades. You may or may not have had the patches for them, but either way the differences in those games are limited to resolution increases, reflections, shadow quality, etc. which are going to be much less noticeable than games with higher resolution textures. You may not have had the patch for AC:Origins because the difference there is still very noticeable despite the lack of higher res textures.

What model monitor are they?

Do they have HDCP 2.2 i.e can you watch 4k Netflix through them?

I'm tempted to buy a 4k monitor but the lack of HDCP is putting me off many monitors.

edit: nevermind I read your post on the first page that lists the model number, would like to know if you're able to watch Netflix on 4k or if you know if it has HDCP 2.2

2.0 hdmi cables don't exist. Only 2.0 hdmi inputs. The only thing that matters for a cable if it's rated for High Speed.

So I went into settings on the XBOX One S, setup for 4K updates under settings, but I don't see any updates for games coming through. I thought Gears update was already up but when I go to manage game I don't see it grabbing any 4K update for download. Same with Forza.

My monitor does not support HDCP 2.2 and in my very limited knowledge of it that is just more of a security encryption for HDR for apps as my games run great in 4k @ 60 fps just without hdr.

I am now running games on my LG OLED65G6P that is HDCP 2.2 and the X does make an amazing picture. Here again unless some patches hit tonight that change my mind the PS4 Pro still holds up very well.

I love how this X is playing games and I will buy all future multi plats on the X as I do feel its going to be the better console to play on.

Have just read alot of people saying how much the X will destroy the Pro in side by side reviews and while it will win these "battles" it will not be total destruction like some people think.

Plus, its coming out a year later and $100 more than the Pro it had better kick its ass.

I believe that is just marketing. They officially test them and then slap that statement on the box. There isn't an actual difference. Any cable rated High-Speed (read almost all of them now) will work just fine and as this is a digital signal, there will be no actual difference in quality.

A quick check of the spec on Wikipedia clears this up. Category 2 cables are marketed as "High-Speed" (10.2 Gbit/s) but could potentially only support up to a max res of 2160p30. The only way to be sure a cable can do 2160p60 is that it is capable of 18 Gbit/s transmission rate.

IIRC, Major already confirmed that the HDMI pack-in cable is rated for 18 Gbit/s.

How about opening apps? Is that any quicker with the extra RAM/faster CPU?

I want to buy one but keep feeling like they must be on the verge of releasing the next-gen version any day now so I don't. 😢

I ordered one from Best Buy and Amazon. Didn't cancel Amazon's until I got a confirmed delivery date on the Best Buy order. I've seen so many horror stories when preordering a console. I just wanted a backup in case one of my orders got delayed or worse yet canceled.
