Xbox One gets boosted GPU bandwidth

Still playing catch-up to Sony's PS4.

I'm surprised no one has asked where this increase in GPU bandwidth has come from on his Twitter account, or do they censor things like that ?

Eurogamer are claiming that it's the removal of Kinect and some of the system functions (e.g. being able to run background apps) that gives the boost.

But "not console, but media centre". Surely they can't remove the things they've been bleating on about as reasons to buy? I'm guessing this will still leave them short of PS4 performance too.

It'll still be slower than a PS4, and they're removing one of the key selling points to bring the boost. I don't like Kinect in general but it is fun shouting commands from my room that bring up menus on my brothers console next door.

If the console was at least 50 to 75 cheaper without Kinect, I'd be interested. Well, I am anyway, but not yet.
