The Xbox One X will make games look better even on non-4K TVs – Business Insider

One of the buzzwords surrounding Microsoft’s Xbox One X
announcement was “4K,” as the new console promises gaming in the
coveted 4K resolution.

But the Xbox One X isn’t just for those with 4K TVs.

Microsoft announced during its press event at E3 last week that
the new Xbox One X will use a technique called “super-sampling”
to make games on the Xbox One X look better than on an original
Xbox One or Xbox One S if you have a 1080p TV.

Super-sampling essentially means that edges around in-game
characters and objects will appear smoother, which should enhance
the overall look of a game on a 1080p TV. With super-sampling,
games can also look more detailed on a 1080p TV with an Xbox One

Another benefit of using an Xbox One X is that games will load
faster due to the console’s sheer power. 

You can actually get an idea of what super-sampling will look
like on the Xbox One X, as Sony’s 4K-enabled PlayStation 4 Pro
console also uses super-sampling to make games look better on
1080p TVs.
Digital Foundry
found that super-sampling made several games
look better on 1080p TVs, especially those that had issues with
jagged edges around in-game objects and characters.

With all that said, it’s probably not worth upgrading to the Xbox
One X if you already have an Xbox One or Xbox One S and a 1080p
TV. With the price of the Xbox One and Xbox One S dropping
dramatically over time, you probably wouldn’t get much if you
were to sell your old Xbox online to offset the Xbox One X’s $500
price tag. For example, you can buy an Xbox One S that comes
bundled with Minecraft for $200 for a limited time on
