The Xbox One's graphics processing unit has been increased, bumping the system's GPU from the original 800MHz clock-speed to 853MHz. The 6.62% increase was confirmed by corporate vice president Marc Whitten in the latest podcast by Xbox LIVE director of programming Larry Hryb (better known as Major Nelson).
"This is the time, and this is the thing I think people are going to see as we get into Gamescom and people get their first look at new things since E3," Whitten told Hryb. "This is the time where developers have the final dev kits in their hands, they're really working closely with us on how things have come together. There's some things that have really started to come together quite well."
Elsewhere in the podcast, Whitten described the behind-the-scenes improvements to the Xbox One graphics driver and the speed boost to the GPU.
