We'd need a better GPU.

The purpose of consoles is to limit the hardware and force developers to make games based on hardware that never changes. If you want to upgrade your hardware, that's PC gaming.

The 360 only came out 4 years after Xbox 1, so not true...

Quite true.

The Xbox and Playstation 2 were set pieces of hardware. Developers had to work with what they had; unlike PC there were no variables or performance issues and settings to be accounted for, no RAM to upgrade or GPUs to select from for various performance gains.

When the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 released, they were entirely new systems with new hardware and features.

You upgrade a computer piece by piece if you so choose, and there's an array of set up options that may or may not perform well for software or other needs.

With a console, it's pre-fabricated and you're stuck with what's in it until the next pre-fab system comes out.
