Why exactly do you consider it "by far superior"?
It appears to be a very mixed experience of pros vs cons between both systems. XB1X seems overall the best system for the game, but I wouldn't use the term "by far superior".
Better framerates and the Xone X manages to output a native resolution almost as high as the checkerboard resolution of the pro. Sure LOD took a small hit. But all around its a much cleaner and stable picture.
Well, in Performance Mode, XB1 framerate averaged at 46f vs Pro's 43f. I think we can agree that "by far" may not apply here? At least in terms of framerate.

When it comes to consistency, in regards to the XBX1 version he said "it's still jerky due to the inconsistent frametimes", so I assume neither platform had an edge when it came to framerate consistency here, as he didn't make a note of that here. For visuals they are both using native 1080p. But PS4 Pro shows some more foliage details.
In Resolution Mode, Pro actually had the higher framerate, (around 37f vs 34f) but the XB1X's framerates remained somewhat more consistent. I guess it comes down to what you prefer, but I wouldn't say "by far" in this case either because the difference was pretty minor.
The DF employee who made the video said that this had become his "preferred mode on both systems, due to the massively improved image quality, and slightly more consistent frame times".
For visuals it was slightly better resolution for Pro, but checkerboard, vs no checkerboard on XB1X. However both versions still displayed unclarity in the distance during movement thanks to a temporal reconstruction technique. And there was still some more foilage on PS4 Pro.
So again, I wouldn't say "by far" here either. Just overall a bit more preferable if you ask me.
In Graphics mode however, XB1X's framerate was significantly higher. And that seemed to be the only difference, so for that mode I'd use the term "by far" better. For the others I find it pretty debatable to say so. And there was no go-to definitive best mode on any system.
