I'm sure not many people actually have multiple Xboxes Side-by-side, but we do. As such, we've noticed something that is really disappointing: ESO runs much, much better on old Xbox One than on the X. I'm talking about an OG Xbox One, not even an S. Why is this a thing?
For example, if you start a new character in Summerset, there is a series of quests that take you into the sewer under Shimmerene. Once you enter this area, the OG Xbox runs perfectly smooth the entire time. On the X, if you face the interior of this entire area at any point, it bogs down to 5-10 FPS. It is an unplayable slideshow. Animations, movement, and camera movement all drag and lag from low FPS. Side by side, it is ridiculous to watch an OG Xbox One run so smoothly, and an X bog down to an unplayable level like this. This area is just an example, there are other areas doing this, as well.
1) This is not network related. Both Xboxes are wired to the same router, on the same Gigabit fiber internet. It is 1000/1000 EPB in Chattanooga which actually gets maximum speed all the time. It is, from my experience, the finest internet in the United States. There is no network latency when playing in the stuttering areas.
2) They are both hooked up to 1080p TV's. As such, there are no 4k or HRD modes running on the X (So performance should be even better). I also had my brother fire up the game and my account on his X, which runs a beautiful TCL 4k TV, and the same thing happens. It is not TV related at all.
3) Both TV's are in gamemode, with no post processing nonsense. It is not a TV framerate issue, it's the Xbox rendering.
I just feel like this issue needs to be raised. Most people probably accept the way the game runs on an Xbox One X simply because they have no frame of reference. I hate to say it guys, but the game barely looks better on the X, but it runs WAY worse than even an OG Xbox One. Something is seriously wrong with the Xbox One X "Enhanced" version of the game. I want people to know this if you are thinking of wasting money on an X in an attempt to improve ESO performance. Do it for other games, sure, but not for ESO.
