Microsoft has given Xbox One a small performance boost before going into full production.
According to Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business, Xbox One CPU speed has been boosted to 1.75 GHz. This is nearly a 10% increase in CPU speed from its 1.6 GHz clock speed.
"We're on track for launch in November," Mehdi told the audience at Citi Global Technology Conference. "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."
Last month, Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten revealed in a podcast that Xbox One's GPU speed has been increased to 853 MHz, up from 800 MHz.
