    Oh, sorry, I wasn't clear: I only meant in relation to other XBox controllers. Or at least the X360 and XB1 controllers, as I've never used an OG XBox controller.

    Good. I was quite disappointed by the softness of the XB1 controller's triggers when compared to the heft of the X360's triggers. I had no idea they had force feedback though, so maybe that was a necessary compromise? Or am I in a relative minority that enjoyed the firmness of the X360 trigger resistance?

    I'm certainly in the minority of people who always liked the boomerang DS3.

    I've always found the trigger rumble in the One a bit lacking. They don't add a lot compared to the linear motors in the Switch (and presumably the DS, based on the comments).

    I agree on the 360 triggers being better than the One's. I like the Series triggers more, even though they're a little less firm. The feel is better.

    If you understand french the best teardown of Xbox Series X



    Funny he launched the console without the fan, it stopped to work after 2 minutes of Gears 5 and the hottest component is the SSD.

    He doesn't do only console analysis, he thinks manufacturing quality is great and the cost is high.

    He gives details about the full electronics and give reference for all chips including some use for the PSU. he does tons of measure you only see on other type of hardware.

    Wonder what the "Xbox Cloud gaming can use >= 24 WGP" implies? Are those just usable for running 4x XBone instances or is their a 3rd performance profile beyond X|S? The latter strikes me as unlikely.

    I guess it could also run in S mode for 1080p streams.

    I'm pretty sure they 'overclock' the 24 WG chips so that they still achieve 12 tflops, and the opposite for a chip will all WG enabled, where they would downclock it to achieve the 12 tflops

    fascinating stuff

    such a nice design.

    Would love to see what they would do with a digital only version.

    Do server plates have the same design as Xbox Series X SoC? They should be rather small then.

    Right? My external HDD is actually louder than the console.

    Before launch many people said XSX GPU was more like 2070, I said it would be more like 2080 Ti. Well not completely apples to apples, but we have a closer compare now with 6700XT. In AMD's 6700XT "game clock" (AMD's conservative estimation of the clock in real world gaming use, different than max boost clock) 6700Xt is 12.4 TF or so. So, fairly close to XSX. In Techspots review in 14 game avg at 1440P, it was very close to a 2080Ti 2080Ti avg 117 FPS, 6700XT avg 114 FPS. 2080 Super 101 FPS, 2080 96 FPS, 2070 Super 89, 2070 75. Probably only I care about this.
