    If it's the same cpu as the Xbox One X (I think it was the X one but I'm not sure, I get pretty confused with those names) and the bios just let you change between the overclock and the S version doesn't that mean that an Xbox One S is just as cappable of being as good as an X just with a change in the bios? (If we could get to the bios of course)

    Its not the same cpu as xbox one s, maybe it has the same cpu clock speed but not the same gpu speed. Xbox one s has a higher gpu clock speed and works on ddr5 not ddr3.
