@MrPellaeon said in Xbox client series s and x optimizations in the future?:
Far as I know there's no such thing as just xbox one x profiles on the series x, and only xbox one profiles only on the series s there's only just xbox one backwards compatibility mode.
NGS is just running in xbox one backwards compatibility mode on both series s and x, and as a result, both you and your girlfriend can crank up all the graphics settings to max and the series s and x will handle it just fine and it'll look great.
It sounds to me also like she's running NGS on balanced graphics settings, and you tweaked yours to max and she doesn't realize she can do the same.
However, there appears to be a bug currently in NGS on series s and x where at times the screen will flicker to black whether you are on default graphics settings, maxed out graphics settings, etc. Seems to happen in central city as well as other places in aelio at random.
We both have all graphic settings maxed out. We live together, I've looked at all the settings etc. I've even gone to the extent of connecting her Series S to my TV.
The GPU in the One X is slightly more powerful than the Series S. Games that are "Enhanced for One X" use a One X profile on the Series X. However the Series S remains with the standard One profile due the fact that the Series S is not designed for 4K (while the One X and obviously Series X are).
Many backwards compatible games that we play which indicate "Enhanced for One X" (which PSO2 is) have different graphical settings/options which are missing completely on the Series S. Monster Hunter World for example even indicates its using a One X profile on my SX but not her SS.
