Microsoft is giving Xbox One game developers some additional hardware resources to play with. The company’s Xbox head Phil Spencer announced today on Twitter that the new Xbox One software development kit update for June will give developers access to more of the console’s GPU.
June #XboxOne software dev kit gives devs access to more GPU bandwidth. More performance, new tools and flexibility to make games better.
Exactly how much more graphics power will be made available for game development is currently unknown. However, Microsoft did increase both the GPU and CPU clock speeds on the Xbox One before the console was officially released in November.
This news comes on the heels of Microsoft sending out its latest system update for the Xbox One, which enables external hard drive support, real names for Xbox Live members and lots more improvements.
What do you think about Microsoft giving Xbox One game developers more access to the console’s GPU and do you think it will have a noticeable effect on its games in the future?
