Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro
Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro

The XBox One X and the PS4 Pro are two of the most powerful home consoles ever released and are both are fantastic systems in their own right. But the question is, which one if for you? Let's start a look at the tech specs before going on to look at the exclusives.


XBox One X: 2.3GHz 8-core custom AMD Jaguar

PS4 Pro: 2.1GHz 8-core custom AMD Jaguar

The difference in power in the CPU isn't really big between these two systems. Both run AMD Jaguars.


XBox One X: 6.0 TFLOP AMD Radeon

PS4 Pro: 4.2 TFLOP AMD Radeon

The GPU is where one of the big differences are. The XBox One X uses an AMD Radeon capable of 6 TFLOP's while the PS4 Pro's is only 4.2 TFLOP's. This gives the XBox One X the edge when it comes to raw power.


XBox One X: 12 GB GDDR5

PS4 Pro: 8GB GDDR5 + 1GB


4K support

XBox One X: Yes

PS$ Pro: Yes (Not true 4K)

While the XBox One X supports true 4K gaming, the PS4 Pro uses checkerboarding to an upscale resolution to achieve something akin to 4K and not true 4K itself.

HDR support

XBox One X: Yes

PS4 Pro: Yes

Optical drive

XBox One X: 4K Blu-ray, DVD

PS4 Pro: Blu-ray, DVD

Backward compatibility

XBox One X: Yes

PS4 Pro: No

This one is a big pro for the XBox over the PlayStation. There is still no backwards compatibility for last gen Playstation game. XBox, on the other hand, has made massive strides in this area in the last couple of years.

VR support

XBox One X: No

PS4 Pro: Yes

Sadly, there is no VR Support on the XBox yet. For the PS4, there's PlayStation VR which has received a slew of new titles over the last year and more coming soon.
