Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Series X's rumored heat issues seem to be false

The testing Jeff Grubb did shows that Hitman on Series X runs at lower temps than it does on PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, though hotter than on a well ventilated gaming PC, which is understandable considering MS managed to pack 300 watts worth of gaming power into a 12" x 6" x 6" case, smaller even than Mini-ITX PC cases.

This video uses thermal imaging and microphone for noise.  It's tested out in the open, on it's side, in a box, and with the top covered with a game.  It does fine.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

you guys are being fooled by the MS pr machine, aside from having no games or exclusives, it will also Green Light of Death when it reaches 69degrees.
the Series X is the worst developed console ever

ALSO DF is obviously paid by MS, DO NOT TRUST DF

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I thought the original 'issue' was heat being expelled from the system at a single point/vent which apparently gets hot to the touch, not the entire system overheating?




A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

The guy that droidknight posted must be swimming in microsoft money, paid influencers are not something you want to look when you want a unbiased opinion.



 

Yeah reports actually point to the PS5 being slightly hotter than the Series X. In any case, recorded temps for both consoles are well within normal standards. As figured, it was blown out of proportion.

I knew the rumor was BS the first time I read it, but it didn't stop the console warriors from spread it then and even now.

Wow, remind me to never listen to anything you have to say again. It's one thing to make clearly uninformed comment on XSX, but now your bashing Digital Foundry. If you actually follow their content they been one of the biggest critics of XSS and have been very harsh on Microsoft for XSX games supporting older consoles. It baffles me that you can even question their integrity. 

I'll keep listening to Digital Foundry and will try to ignore garage comments from now on.
