Microsoft's new job listing suggests a game mod hosting service is coming to Xbox LIVE. The first episode had details on Sea of Thieves, PixArk, and the Xbox version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Like PCs powered by AMD Radeon graphics technology, the Xbox One S and Xbox One X will deliver variable refresh rates so that compatible displays will work in sync with the Xbox GPU to remove tearing and deliver smoother gaming visuals.

Over the weekend, Microsoft and AMD made a somewhat unexpected announcement on the debut of their new Inside Xbox show: AMD FreeSync 2 support will be coming to the Xbox One S and Xbox One X this spring. Xbox systems will be able to tell displays to enable or disable their respective game modes automatically when the user starts or exits a game.

While Microsoft is adding FreeSync, the company is also planning to support auto low latency mode on TVs. By introducing this feature, Microsoft is removing a pain point for anyone who uses their TV for gaming and watching movies. There are 4K FreeSync monitors, ultrawide FreeSync monitors, 1440p FreeSync monitors, 1080p FreeSync monitors.

She also revealed that she told sister Khloe Kardashian , 33, first about her pregnancy and said it was a "perfect experience". She added that Stormi hasn't laughed yet but is smiling a lot at the moment, and she can't get over her baby's "little toes ".


Besides the new tech, the Xbox One is getting myriad minor improvements in the update. Most FreeSync displays don't enable the variable-refresh technology below 48 Hz or so unless their top-end is over 120 Hz-a characteristic that lets them support AMD's Low Framerate Compensation.

On the TV side, many televisions these days have a low latency mode - or game mode - that turns off image processing in order to cut down on lag.
