Playing Xbox Series X games makes it hard to go back to the Xbox One

TechRadar has had hands-on time with a not-final version of the Xbox Series X as part of the Xbox Series X preview program.

It’s only when you play Xbox Series X-optimized games that you realize just how powerful the new Xbox is. The colors are more vibrant, the environments more detailed, and everything is simply sharper.

That’s primarily down to the raw power of the Xbox Series X itself, which boasts a custom-designed GPU from AMD with 12 teraflops of computing performance. But, when combined with a HDMI 2.1-compliant display capable of the 4K UHD and 120fps Microsoft recommends (in our case a Samsung Q80T QLED 4K HDR Smart TV), you really get the full impact of how much better Xbox Series X games look compared to the Xbox One.

But it’s not just that Xbox Series X games look better, they perform better too. Minimal loading screens mean that you are rarely out of the action for more than a few seconds, and it results in a seamless experience that may have you wondering how you ever lived with lengthy loading times.

Having spent some hands-on time with preview builds of the upcoming Xbox Series X Optimized games, it looks like my Xbox One S could be going into retirement. Here are some impressions of the games I’ve been trying out so far.
