SSDs boost Fallout 4 performance on the Xbox One

 

Fallout 4 on consoled target 1080p at 30FPS, but performance is often lower. Now it has been proven that an SSD can actually improve your consoles gaming performance in the game in Fallout 4.

These dips are due to what digital foundry call a "storage bottleneck", meaning that the performance if the Xbox One's onboard storage is limiting how fast the CPU or GPU can operate. In there testing while loading the game from an SSD they found that the Xbox One version of the game suffer from much smaller framerate drops and the occurrence of less FPS dips below the games target of 30FPS. 

 

       Running on a stock hard drive, Fallout 4 has some serious stutter issues on Xbox One. So we thought - what would happen if we dumped the game to external storage? Here we test an SSD, a hybrid SSHD and a 7200rpm hard drive. Oh - and PS4 owners? We've tested the SSD there too.

 

 

Right now Bethesda is currently working on a patch to fix this particular issues. In the past we have seen this issue in game like Batman: Arkham Knight, which at launch was unplayable while running off of a standard mechanical hard drive.

Special thanks to AlienALX for bringing this issue to my attention.

Why couldn't they? They are technically a PC with a really locked down OS and no internet browsers

It's really interesting to see even with the SSD in the Xbone, it still lags behind the PS4 with the stock HDD. Guess that's the extra GPU grunt there. PS4 ssd didn't really improve much, kinda just removed 80% of all the dips in framrate based off the video.Quote

I don't think that's going to replace the current definition of an Xbox One any time soon.

Also external drives are faster than the internal storage on Xbox One.Quote

My Xbone is relegated to a voice controlled netflix viewer now, and the occasional dabble at the Xbox exclusives like Forza 6, killer instinct etc.

Otherwise.. its a mediocre console.

It's taken them until now, to add an app for the controller allowing you to remap the buttons to what ever you like.Quote
