Should I be worried about MS "overclocking" the CPU & GPU?

#1Scarface720Posted 10/16/2013 7:48:06 PM
I really want to get the xb1 because I like the exclusives better and all my best friends are getting it, but I read somewhere that MS overclocked their CPU at the last minute which sounds like they haven't tested it very much. Can someone please ease my mind?

dude Microsoft made the Xbox one extremely big for the reasons of updating it and upclocking it for the future I know I'm sure many people are nervous aboutwhat happen with 360but there's no way in hell that can make the same mistake twice

I'd like to think that they wouldn't take a risk because they wouldn't want to lose a lot of money again. That is their motivation to make sure it works well which makes me feel better.

Just as much as PS4 owners will have to worry about the red line error. Which is little to none.

It's Microsoft, they constantly repeat mistakes.

Particularly as the PS4 doesn’t even have a red LED there just a blue and white…

Does that mean we should expect PS4 to have both DRE and YLOD because they keep repeating mistakes?

Stop it. Don't talk about things you may not know.
