xbox 1 x GPU upgradable?

From the breakdown there wasn't a GPU removed, leading to the obvious that the GPU

is onboard. My hopes were that I could upgrade the GPU over time to future proof the console.

If my observation is wrong please give a link to the correct info.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Goodluck :)

My mistake clearly, I do apologize for that, You cannot upgrade the Gpu, if you're wanting better graphics, it pays to get the newer xbox's such as the Xbox one s as it sits for Gpu: AMD GCN GPU @ 914Mhz w/ 12 compute units compared to the AMD GCN GPU @ 853Mhz w/ 12 compute units.

Which will play a small favor in looks

Update (11/11/2017)

It has close to the same computing power its just the Xbox One X is much more powerful than the Xbox One S in central processing. It runs on eight custom x86 cores, clocked at speeds of 2.3GHz. The Xbox One S also has eight cores but they are slower, running at 1.75GHz.

Although The One X bosses things in RAM. There is 12GB of GDDR5 RAM with bandwidth of up to 326GB/s. The Xbox One S has 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 32MB of ESRAM, with bandwidth of 68GB/s and 219GB/s respectively.

Did you bother to even read the link you gave?

"Sadly it seems that you can't upgrade the Xbox one."

The Xbox one S is an older model, with far less computing power than the X.

@pccheese I may need some help with the new kid on the block, maybe you can be more diplomatic with him. I'd hate to lower the hammer.

@mayer Sure thing.

@darkethereal, When writing an answer, write what the questioneer wants to know and try to keep it limited to that. The person didn't want a comparison between the S and X, they wanted to know if the One X's GPU is interchangeable or not. RAM and CPU specs aren't related to the question at hand. Try explaining how the GPU isn't replaceable and explaining why it isn't, as I did in my answer below. If you don't know the answer, it's okay, just find a question you can answer accurately and well.

The Xbox One X does not have an upgradable GPU. It like many other consoles has a SoC APU that combines both a processor and a GPU into one package. This chip is also soldered to the board making it irreplaceable unless by a professional, and only with a replacement chip of the same kind. Even if you could replace the GPU, the firmware and software is only compatible with that SoC it came with. It is impossible unless you are a genius Xbox engineer.

Hope this helps!

@pccheese Not yet, he was on yesterday and his answers are improving ;-)

@pccheese this something that we should look into. Being able to upgrade your console, huge console warrior over here, would be fantastic! It would require custom made aftermarket chips...maybe I can reach out to Scotty Allen...

by

@theimedic Impossible. The console's firmware is only compatible with that specific chip in many ways. Not only that, but the games are optimized for the Xbox's chip. I also find it unlikely that anyone would or could make a chip compatible or better then the current chip.

by

@pccheese then we'd just need custom chips and you'd have to update the firmware. Which I hope would be a reasonable task, if you're at the level of replacing gpu chips
