Xbox One S vs Xbox one X-Technology Which Would you Buy
At the end of the day what it comes down to whether you own a 4K TV to go with it. if you own a 4K television or monitor, an Xbox One X will not provide the best visuals the video game industry has to offer outside of every high-end gaming PC. Even on 1080p sets, many games supports Xbox One X-exclusion 60 FPS modes, but you would still be paying a premium for the privilege.
With the Xbox One X being around $200 more expensive than the Xbox One S, it’s impartial to expect some huge gains. Microsoft has delivered. The X box One X packs a staggering 130 visually enhanced games with more coming, taking advantage of the console’s beastly six teraflops (TF) of graphical power.
Buy comparison, the Xbox One S only has around 1.2 TF, which often struggles to manage games at an innate 1080p resolution, But what does it all mean?
4K is above-mentioned to as “UHD” or ultra-high-definition because the images contain many millions of additional pixel’s (8,294,400 to be exact) vs. standard high-definition (2,073,600). Each pixel represents a single point of colored light, which combine to create the images on-screen. More pixel’s means sharper images, more detail, and thus more engagement.
Both consoles also support HDR, which allows games to achieve more vivid colors, and harness more realistic light tones and contrast, producing spectacular effects.

While it’s hard to reproduce what 4K truly means without viewing the images on a 4K screen, simply because the display does not have enough pixel’s to show the images naively. It will not do 4K any justice as the images are collapsed.
You can see in the above graph that the 4K image is far crisper than 1080p image, especially when you zoom in. When playing graphic-challanging games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and
Shadow of Tomb Raider, the difference is quite breathtaking.
Difference Between 4K Xbox One X VS Xbox One S-Enhanced Visual Quality
The differences between 4K on the Xbox One X and HD-level visuals on the standard Xbox One S, with the X Box One S showing better Quality, It is not always about resolution, Never the fewer owners of 1080p TVs can get in on the X Box One X action to some degree.
Many games support 60 FPS modes exclusive to the Xbox One X, which you’ll be able to appreciate it on a 1080p set. Fall out 76, for example, will have far better detail in its sky, and environments even on a 1080p TV, When using an Xbox One X.
Highly-detailed “AAA” games liken Assassin’s Creed Odyssey truly come to life in 4K, with unparalleled detail.
Many games on the Xbox One X enhanced list won’t output at native 4K resolution. Instead, they will either use checkerboard rendering techniques or use sub-4K resolution, using computing power to compesate details, and improve effects instead (further more). Even if using UHD resolution your HD set can’t accept, the Xbox One X will use a technique called.
Supersampling to recreate the 4K image and improve its quality at an HD level. You’ll also benefit from faster loading speeds, due to X’s upgraded HDD.
Additional Feature similarities-Pros and Cons
Knowing that their are many games that will look significantly better on the Xbox One X, but what about other features? The first thing to mention is that the Xbox One X is slightly smaller than the S. It’s not so much smaller that it could influence your decisions on that fact by itself, but it’s worth being aware of.
The two consoles can also be vertically positioned vertically with an additional vertical stand.
Both consoles run incredibly quietly, despite the X’s slim form fact. The X comes with advanced cooling features to help with this, which no dought, in part, has impacted its price point. Both support HDMI-in for TV pass-through, meaning that you can connect your cable box or TV receiver to your console, and use it to navigate channels and TV schedules.
However, using the Xbox One S TV tuner accessory, Both consoles also have an IR blaster to communicate with other devices, such as television, sound system controls. Neither console has a port for the (now dead) Kinect, sadly, but you can pick up a Kinect USB adapter for that purpose if you still have one.
Since the October 2018 update, the Xbox One X can be controlled using an Amazon Eco voice speaker, which is awesome alternative for Kinect. As for other peripherals, both the X and the S have the same number of USB ports: two in the back, one in the front.
The Xbox One S was updated with support for 1080p 30 FPS game DVR clip recording, after years of being restricted to 720p. The Xbox One X, however, supports full 4K 60 FPS video recording options, complete with HDR, with current technology, the best 4K capture devices are either PCI-e based (Desktop PC), OS professional grade standalone solutions that cost hundreds.
Sometimes thousands of dollars. In addition, the Xbox One X supports Freelance variables refresh rates-Xbox One supports Freesync all parameters refresh rates-Xbox One X enhanced games can offer options for frame rates between the standard 30 and 60 FPS without sreen-ripping. This will accommodate a smooth experience even if developers decide to offer sub-60 FPS frame rate to achieve 4K or other visual enhancements on their games.
While support for this kind of display technology is not widespread in partnership with 4K and HDR, it should see more acceptance in 2019 and moving forward.
Microsoft Transformation-So, Which Should I Buy
The top issue is whether or not you own a 4K television. There advantages to Xbox One user with 1080p set, but not anywhere’s near as pronounced as they would with a 4K display with HDR. I would debate that unless you’re going to get a 4K TV or monitor in the near future, that you should stick with the Xbox One S.
Nevertheless, when time moves forward, it feels like developers are increasingly prioritizing development of the Xbox One X version of their game. Many modern games run far worse on the Xbox One S. Even if you don’t have a 4K TV to experience the extra pixel’s, you’ll enjoy better performance across the board.
If your that gamer unsure of which path to choose, whether or not to join the 4K resolution revolution. It is a matter, it depends on what you want for your console experience. If your that gamer that buys all the latest, best games, and wants the best visual experience possible, the Xbox One X with a 4K TV is the best option by far this year.
If your a content create’r, the Xbox One X will provide you with 4K video clips, and screenshots as a bonus. However, if you are rather a little more on the casual side and more interested in two games a year and you occasionally play in the evenings after a hard day at work, consuming media on the side, the Xbox One S might be a more cost-effective solution.
You can always invest in a 4K TV and an Xbox One X later, since all games and accessories will be fully compatible across both devices. You’ll get the 4K upgraded visuals included for free. 4K panels and the Xbox One X will eventually come down in price as well.
In the end it will all come down to bargain console, or performance powerhouse. But the Xbox One S is going to be the real bargain console for the remainder of the year. The X will go on and compete for the hardcore audience against Sony’s less-powerful PlayStation 4 Pro and even some higher-end gaming PC.
