    That site on XB1 is really slow compared to my phone. Weird since I haven't noticed that big of difference on other pages, but then again I might not have been using Javascript heavy sites either. I did do a test of Javascript performance on my XB1 versus my Lumia 640, both running Edge 13 & Windows 10 and got this...

    Dromaeo Recommended Tests:

    XB1:
    196.79runs/s (Total)
    http://dromaeo.com/?id=245721

    Lumia 640:
    68.63runs/s (Total)
    http://dromaeo.com/?id=245724

    Compare: http://dromaeo.com/?id=245721,245724

    This test was interesting. If I'm reading that right the XB1 was consistently faster than my phone. If somebody has a better test let me know.

    Here's a test of HTML5 capability...

    HTML5Test

    XB1:
    426 out of 555 points
    http://html5test.com/s/5ff10e2cea8d96c9.html

    Lumia 640:
    442 out of 555 points
    http://html5test.com/s/48382b2cea904252.html

    You would expect them to be identical since they're basically the same app. The biggest difference is that the XB1 doesn't have GPS & geolocation capability. Duh. :)

    BTW, IE 10 on the XB1 got a 286 & IE 9 on the 360 gets a 98. LOL

    Anyway, yes, I think there will be some cases where some sites are faster when using a mobile or deskop/laptop, but then again you'd probably wanted the touch or mouse experience there anyway. For most sites I think the XB1 will do just fine.

    P.S.
    My Toshiba Satellite U405 laptop running Chrome-based Linux for comparison:

    FCC filing points to new Xbox hardware revisions, June announcement
    Crafty NeoGAF member spots model number clues, two devices, ahead of June's E3.

    [​IMG]

    The author's interpretation of a recently discovered FCC filing from Microsoft. Xbox One Super-Slim! Has a nice ring to it, right? We'll have to wait until late June to find out, if not sooner.

    At least on the Xbox side of things, we have one more piece of information thanks to a crafty German user at the famed NeoGAF gaming forums. On Tuesday, "Mike R" noticed two FCC filings by Microsoft, both filed in March, for wireless radio devices. The filing for part number 1683 appears to have clear ties to the original Xbox One's WLAN module FCC filing, as both include a 202kB "user manual" PDF with a "1525" model number designation—and in the old filing's case, that brings up a guide to the Xbox One's legal warnings.

    The other FCC filing for part number 1682 has a few differences, including a longer list of attached "exhibits" and a lack of that specific user manual PDF—but it has other commonalities, including another "User Manual (system) rev" PDF that is 213kB in both filings. The 1682 filing has a short-term confidentiality request that expires on June 25, weeks after the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, while the 1683 filing's confidentiality won't expire until July 29.

    The 1683 filing seems to point to a minimal-revision Xbox One (i.e. an XB1 Slim) that will be made public by the end of June, which would give Microsoft the opportunity to announce it at this year's E3. That suspected model's wireless chip has 802.11ac wireless capabilities, by the way, which would be a nice boost (not to mention seemingly essential for any wireless game-streaming access a la OnLive or PlayStation Now, which we know Microsoft has at least internally toyed with).

    ......

    Wrong thread
    Manuals normally include diagrams of the devices exterior. You know, so you can know what you're looking at.

    This may imply an internally revised version of the Xbox One, and a new, complementary/supplementary model (slim? DD only?).

    Hopefully this means the external power brick is gone .. but going by the reasoning I just gave above, I thing I may be disappointed for at least one of these models.

    At least adds fuel to the fire that SOMETHING (slim, Xbox Two (unlikely) etc may show up at e3. Hardly certain but now nobody will be shocked.

    You'd think a slim Xbox would have leaked though, how early do slim models usually leak through chinese grain photos?

    I think it's good, I've said given the XBO hardware the best course is to slim/cheapify it ASAP.

    I hope any revision is not just a low profile version of Xbox One but a box with a smaller footprint (width x depth).

    This post wouldn't compile.
    Am I the only one not being able to ignore that?

    The two references don´t relate to two different consoles.

    1682 is related to a network adapter. It is just like the one in XBOX ONE but made by Mediatek (MT7632) instead of Marvell.
    1683 is a peripheral since it is using the MT7612U, just the mediatek USB 3.0 chip for wifi dongles inside the X1 Wireles Adapter for PC.

    Among 1682 documents you can find the XBOX ONE manual and another different manual whose content is not known. The second manual can be found among the documents listed for 1683 as well.

    So there are two options:

    1) A new model of console and a new adapter for PC.
    2) A peripheral to be used with XBOX ONE, composed by the peripheral itself and a dongle for conection, since the share the same manual. May it be a VR gear? Who knows.

    Rumors say the price will be $449, that's suicidal IMO.

    Edit: IR blaster on the bottom right corner?

    Ekim also claims the power supply for the Xbox One S is built-in, a first for an Xbox console. There's no details on the "streamlined controller,"

    I guess that explains why it is only 40% smaller... All kidding aside, it does look ok, although the cooling dots remind me of a microphone screen.

    Edit on controller - could be streamlined if they took out the AA's and went with a Li-ion battery I guess. Which would be a bummer, as I love the ease of Eneloops.

    Ekim said the rumored price is wrong somewhere on GAF.

    No word on HDMI built in as well? I'm most interested in the controller.

    40% smaller... does that include external PSU that is now internal? Console is still noticeably larger than PS4.

    No word on actual specs other than what was captured in the leaked images. :(

    It's been said that mock-up isn't all that accurate (with the Xbox One original). And yes, It's been said the power supply is internal.

    We have no idea on how exactly they arrived at 40% smaller, if the included the size of the external power supply brick in the original volume calculations.
