If you have wondered how much better the sound quality of the new next generation Xbox One will be compared to the older generation Xbox 360.
You will be pleased to learn that Microsoft has this week published comparison sample of both for you to make the call over on their Major Nelson website. Check them out after the jump.
The Microsoft Xbox One is powered by a customised AMD Jaguar 8 core processor and will also feature a graphics processor that is tailored for Direct X 11. graphics and comes with 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM.
The 8GB of RAM on the Xbox one is DDR3, and will be capable of supporting full HD video in 1080p and the new 4k video, it will also offer full 7.1 surround sound support. Major nelson explains a little more about the sounds enhancements of the new Xbox One games console.
“Thanks to integration with Skype’s audio codec, which has a proven track record of high-quality voice through billions of hours of use within Skype, as well as dedicated audio processing (for Xbox One conversations via Skype and multiplayer party chats), Xbox One offers higher quality voice chat with the Xbox One Chat Headset compared to Xbox 360—whether you’re chatting in-game or through party chat with Skype on Xbox One.
But the improvements don’t stop there. The Xbox One Wireless Controller’s new expansion port dramatically expands the data transfer rate between the controller and console. Combined with Skype’s audio codec, this enables crystal-clear digital audio with the Xbox One Chat Headset, both capturing and rendering speech at 24 KHz PCM, which is triple the rendering sample rate and a 50 percent capture rate improvement over Xbox 360 headsets. And, as we shared before, the Xbox One Chat Headset comes with every Xbox One console.”
The Microsoft Xbox One is priced at $499.99 in the US, £429.99 in the UK and 499.99 Euros throughout Europe and $599.99 AU in Australia.
