Xbox One 150Mhz CPU boost, takes it from 1.6Ghz to 1.75Ghz

Woah Microsoft, calm it down! First you upgrade the Xbox One GPU with a 53Mhz “overclock“, and now you’re boosting the CPU up by 150Mhz. Quick, someone get the liquid nitrogen!
Sarcasm aside, Microsoft are clearly wanting to squeeze every bit of power out of their components, determined to provide the best experience to Xbox One adopters.
Presumably the extra heat will still be handled nicely by the Xbox One’s cooling…
I’m not sure that the increase will make any noticeable enhancements to the gaming experience offered by the Xbox One, but hey, it’s at least making the news.
Bringing the focus back to next-gen console specs might not be the best of things for Microsoft though, considering the PlayStation 4 still wins in that respect. A firm focus on the games offered, the premium services, and everything else that the Xbox One does well, would be better for Microsoft I think.
So there you go, a slight overclock and I’m sitting here at 1 a.m. writing about it. Thanks, Microsoft!
