Xbox Series X Hands-On: Load Times, Quick Resume, and Compatibility
In our first hands-on test of the Xbox Series X, we show off how the world's most powerful console handles backwards compatible older games, loading times from the NVME SSD hard drive, plus a test of Quick Resume, and more! Stay tuned for more videos coming soon that will cover new games as well as overall Xbox Series X impressions.
Xbox Series X Load Time Comparison (RDR2, Control, FFXV)
Here's how the Series X loading times stack up to an Xbox One X. Tested on Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, Outer Worlds, and FFXV.
Xbox Series X features faster loading times than its predecessor the Xbox One X, and the difference between the two systems is extremely impressive. We were able to go hands-on with the two systems and compare their loading times across Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, The Outer Worlds, and Final Fantasy XV. See for yourself how much less time you’ll spend waiting on loading screens and how much more you can spend playing games. Once we have access to games that are releasing with Xbox Series X versions, we’ll have to see how they compare, as well.
