I was just thinking exactly the same thing. Been tempted to pull the trigger on a One S since it launched, having said I wouldn't by the first next-gen SKU. Now I'm glad I didn't buy the second SKU either.So glad I didn't upgrade from my XB360 to the Xbox One yet... This might be the perfect time to upgrade. Just give it six months or so for the prices to settle down and specials to start kicking in.
While, it still has limit. Xbox One only supports HEVC 10-bit codec. Based on our testing, some H.265 files like in 12bit can't play via Xbox One properly.The Xbox One and One X support x265 HEVC.
Well it's not like one can know specifically what the quality settings are. The only way to categorically determine whether it can do 4K @ 60FPS is to run a game bench in comparison with a PC port on Ultra."However, delivering over 30FPS in a native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 would require double the processing power of 2,560 x 1,440 at 30FPS – meaning the Xbox One X will have to use lower graphics quality settings or upscaling techniques to deliver a minimum of 30FPS at 4K."
This article was written by someone who didn't watch E3 - Forza 7 is running 4K at 60FPS, with 30% GPU to spare. And it definitely isn't medium graphics.
