Xbox One CPU gets 150 MHz boost, console in full production, release date coming

Vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business announced at today's Citi Global Technology Conference that Xbox One's CPU has received a 10% boost in overall performance before going into full production this week. Microsoft's next-gen Xbox One CPU is now running at 1.75 Ghz, instead of the previously announced 1.6 GHz clock speed.


"We're on track for launch in November," Mehdi said. "We'll announce a launch date shortly. We recently just went into full production, so we're now producing en masse Xbox One consoles. We've had real good progress on the system. In fact, we just updated the CPU performance to 1.75 GHz on top of the graphics performance improvement, so the system is really going to shine [and] the games look pretty incredible."

The performance boost follows a similar clock speed increase announced in August. Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten said on a podcast that the Xbox One's GPU now runs at 853 MHz, up from 800 MHz.

Mehdi called the upcoming Xbox One release Microsoft's "biggest launch by a wide margin."

"We've built more [systems] than we've ever built for an Xbox launch," he said.
