It could definitely point that way. If the promise of pushing more commands from the CPU to the GPU is true (and we have no reason to believe it isn't), the console's components are gonna be pushed harder. Microsoft better have a good plan in place to optimize that.

the reason its big and has a large fan is so it can run as quietly as possible, which it does well, it was an important design goal when the box was also to be used for watching tv.

Hopefully they don't push it to overheating point. Nobody wants another RROD fiasco.

Lol. I guess MS learnt a lot form their mistakes with the 360 don't think we will ever see that again.

Wonder if they are gonna make any announcements of DX12 and the involvement with Xbox One and how they are planning to improve.

Something is going on now as far as performance, games seem to be running smoother for me not sure why Titanfall I noticed the most. I recently updated to the latest beta is all I can think of.

I would like to not have to unplug my X1 periodically to reset it and get it to operate correctly. This came from Xbox Support.
