Microsoft: “Xbox Series X and S are the only next-gen consoles that support all RDNA2 features”

Microsoft Xbox Series X and S are the only next-gen consoles that support all RDNA2 features

We’ve known about the term RDNA2 for a long time, but precisely the first time we heard that a system was going to use it (aside from future AMD graphics, of course) was when Xbox Series X was still Project Scarlett. Until today, we already knew absolutely everything about the new generation of Microsoft, but it was precisely the processor manufacturer that was missing to reveal its new generation of graphics.

Today, with the official launch of the new RX 6000, AMD has confirmed the full support and functionality of RDNA2. As we expected, many of these are already integrated into Xbox Series X and S, but, let’s get to the point, the big question that crosses the internet is whether the Sony console has exactly the same characteristics as Microsoft’s. And the statement today from the Xbox Wire account has been resounding:

Xbox Series X | S will be the only next-generation consoles with full RDNA2 integration, thanks to our agreement with AMD.

Xbox Series X and S: Full RDNA2

Obviously, there is always room for a response from the PS5, but there are specific functions of RDNA2, such as the VRS and Mesh Shaders that have not been mentioned in their presentations, which raised suspicions in the user. As we can read in the XboxWire post, everything presented today at the AMD show will also be supported by Xbox Series X and S.

Games like Watch Dogs: Legion already have DirectX Raytracing, the Mesh Shaders provide a very high capacity to the system to handle geometry in real-time, giving developers flexibility never seen before.

The Sampler Feedback, built into the Xbox Series Velocity Architecture, allows only the portions of texture that the GPU needs to render for a scene to be stored in memory, providing a more than double memory and bandwidth boost.

Finally, it is confirmed that games like Gears 5 will use Variable Rate Shading or VRS, which allows saving GPU resources in the least necessary image fragments without reducing image quality, making the system gain up to 15% performance. only with this feature.

But collaboration goes further, thanks to Direct ML or Machine Learning that Xbox Series has built into the hardware. This will not only allow adding smarter NPCs or better animations but also a better visual quality thanks to techniques such as “Super-resolution by ML”, which will automatically increase the resolution.

A whole series of features that AMD and Microsoft have put together in Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which will open more and more possibilities for this future next generation that is coming to us. This is great news.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War does look different on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War arrived on consoles on November 13, becoming one of the titles that welcome the new generation of consoles.

As you already know, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have different graphics power, and it is completely normal for gamers to wonder which one works better.

A video recently appeared that answers this question, since it puts both versions of Call of Duty side by side so that you can analyze where it looks with more quality.

YouTube channel NB MOTIONS decided to side-by-side gameplay of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, running on PlayStation Series 5 Xbox X.

In almost six minutes we can see the definitive comparison in the graphical performance of both consoles, using the Treyarch title, and to notice the differences you will need a well-trained eye.

We do not tell you more and we leave you the video below.

As you can see, the graphic performance is extremely similar on both consoles; However, lighting Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War looks somewhat clearer on Xbox X Series.

For its part, the PlayStation 5 version stands out in the details of the environment and the definition in some particles, for example, the fire scene.

The differences are minimal and do not allow defining a winner in terms of performance, so you will have to experience it for yourself.

This is how the Master Chief Collection performs in all its Xbox versions

After several months that many of us have seemed endless, the time has finally come to enjoy the new generation of consoles, as Microsoft last week launched the new Xbox Series X and Series S, which have been a success in sales both in reserves and in the batch that we have had these days.

Although many of us would have liked to be able to play Halo Infinite with the launch of these new consoles, we have a good number of games optimized and prepared to take advantage of the new hardware, something to which the Master Chief Collection has been added does nothing.

Master Chief Collection performs great on both Xbox One and Xbox Series

Without a doubt, the new generation is giving incredible moments just beginning, since although the collection has not been patched to take advantage of the hardware, we already saw a few days ago that these consoles work their magic as well, especially with loading times.

But now we have the Master Chief Collection fully ready to work on Xbox Series, something that can be clearly seen in the new video of the ElAnalistaDeBits channel, in which we can see how loading times, resolution, drawing distance, and frames per second improve notably, although this collection also demonstrates great performance on Xbox One, save for Halo 2 Anniversary which has fps issues.

It is also important to mention that this works at 120 fps on Xbox Series X / S, although they are being measured with the limit of 60. What is clear is that the new generation is going at full speed and without drops.

The Master Chief Collection is at its best on both Xbox and PC and we expect the folks at 343 Industries to reveal details on Halo Infinite in a few weeks, which we are really looking forward to.
