Stardock CEO: I wish Microsoft had invested in DDR5 RAM for the Xbox One instead of DDR3
Stardock CEO Brad Wardell has expressed his disappointment with the hardware specs of the Xbox One.
Unlike everyone else who has take issue with the eSRAM Wardell explained that they believe Micreosoft “cheaped out” by using DDR3 RAM instead of DDR5 like Sony used with the PS4.
In a conversation on Twitter Wardell explained that the problems were less to do with the eSRAM and more to do with the use of DDR3 RAM as a whole. He added, "I just wish they'd used DDR5".
Wardell also believes that the the development benefits that DirectX 12 will bring for the Xbox One will be entirely down to the developers. He said, "there are no 'definite' it'll depend on the developer."
