If you’re lost on the latest generation of consoles, or if you’re not ready to upgrade to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S just yet, know that now is the perfect time to invest in the next one. generation hardware. Not only do you get the best versions of every console (PS4 Pro and Xbox One X) for less money, but you also get huge libraries of games to choose from. Plus, many new generation games will almost certainly run on these machines, so you won’t miss out on most of the big games.

Unlike the transition from Xbox One to Xbox One S, the Xbox Series X is better in several key technical areas. The same goes for the PlayStation 4 Pro compared to switching from PS4 to PS4 Slim.

With that in mind, we’ve put two superior consoles side by side, considering all the major factors. We hope this guide will help you choose between Xbox One X vs. ps4 pro.

equipment and performance

Inside, the most notable differences between PS4 Pro and Xbox One X lie in their memory and GPU. The Xbox One X GPU runs at an impressive 6 teraflops, with 40 compute units tuned to 1172MHz, more than the PS4 Pro’s 4.2 teraflops, and 36 GCN compute units overclocked to 911MHz. In terms of raw power, this makes the Xbox One X more comparable to PC GPUs like the Radeon RX 480.

Memory is also greatly increased with 12GB GDDR5 RAM compared to 8GB DDR5 on PS4 Pro, bringing the Xbox One X memory bandwidth up to 326GB/s compared to 218GB/s on the Pro. The difference in CPU power is small, but Jaguar’s special cores in Xbox One X can provide better performance.

With such a gap between GPU and memory, the Xbox One X consistently outperforms the PlayStation 4 Pro in third-party games, although there are occasional exceptions.

Winner: Xbox One X


Hymn on Xbox One X

One of the biggest selling points of the Xbox One X is its ability to run games in 4K resolution at a constant 60fps, which is something we see in many Microsoft and third-party titles. The PS4’s track record is patchy, with developers using techniques to improve visuals but lacking 4K in practice.

The Xbox One X also provides better support for users without 4K TVs. Microsoft requires all higher resolution games to use supersampling with 1080p displays. This means that regular HD TVs will display a richer picture than a standard Xbox One. Support for this feature is not compatible with PS4 Pro, even in third-party games.

Winner: Xbox One X

Video and movie support

Although the PlayStation 4 Pro is specifically designed to support 4K gaming, it only includes a standard Blu-ray player that cannot play UHD Blu-ray discs. PS4 Pro can stream 4K videos through apps like Netflix and Hulu. Xbox One X also offers the ultimate home theater experience for music lovers with Bitstream audio streaming and Dolby Atmos support.

One of the main selling points of the PS4 Pro was the wider support for PlayStation VR. All PS4 versions work with VR, but Pro delivers crisper, more detailed renderings. However, graphical updates do not happen automatically, so only games created specifically to take advantage of Pro can do this.

Microsoft’s partnership with Oculus has sparked speculation that the Xbox One X could be paired with a Rift VR headset, but that’s unlikely to be the case for the current generation. Microsoft has said in the past that VR and mixed reality work best on PC. For now, only the PS4 Pro has a dedicated VR headset.

Winner: PS4 Pro

game support

Both the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro appear to support the same games as their standard models. Developers will need to specifically enable features that take advantage of the most powerful consoles so that all games can be played on Xbox One X and Pro, but not all games will benefit the same.

The current list of games known to be updated on Xbox One X includes:

  • Hymn
  • ashen
  • Assassin’s Creed Odysseus
  • Code Vienna
  • overclocking 3
  • Darksiders III
  • devil may cry 5
  • Division 2
  • Dragon Ball SlayerZ
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • fallout 4
  • Far a new dawn
  • final fantasy xv

You can view the current list of PlayStation 4 Pro compatible games here. Since it was the first console, you’d think Sony would have the upper hand, but Microsoft quickly closed the gap by releasing a great lineup of third-party games, and adding support for older Xbox One titles as well.

Naturally, not only games that have updates are important, but also the total number of games. In recent years, Sony has beaten Microsoft when it comes to exclusive PS4 games. Microsoft is trying to close the gap and has recently bought several major studios, including Playground Games and Ninja Theory, but Sony’s library of exclusives currently surpasses them. However, Microsoft’s drive to bring new and existing games to 4K greatly diminishes the benefits of Sony’s software.

Winner: draw


Microsoft has officially discontinued the Xbox One X, but it’s still priced around $400, about $50 more than the PS4 Pro. When you see the detailed breakdown of the specs, it’s easy to see why there’s a difference. However, with the release of the new generation, it is very likely that these prices will continue to decline. In fact, since the Xbox One X has been “officially” discontinued, you can buy it second hand for even less.

While we think the extra $100 for an Xbox One X is reasonable considering the bundle, we understand that $400 is still a hefty price to pay. But we insist: If you’re in doubt between the “best of the cheap” from Microsoft or Sony, we think the Xbox One X is probably worth the price you pay.

Luckily, discounts continue day by day. On some sites, we saw the Xbox One X for $350 and the PS4 Pro for an even cheaper $300.


Sony has surpassed Microsoft with the PS4 Pro by bringing 4K games to a reasonable price for consoles, while also giving them a little more appeal with PlayStation VR. However, since launch, we’ve found this console to stumble a bit due to inconsistent support.

With the Xbox One X, the PS4 Pro has some impressive competition in the premium console market. Given the clear hardware advantages, if you’re after a 4K console, the Xbox One X might be the way to go…unless you need VR support.
