Supposedly, Xbox Series X has a hidden problem related to the system clock that makes Xbox games run more slowly. The terrible thing about this problem is that, unless you have two Xbox series X consoles, and unless you both use with a certain regularity, you will probably never find out about the problem. And because of this, it is currently impossible to determine how extended the problem is, assuming that the report is precise and that in fact there is a problem on the console side instead of the user’s side.
The warning affirms that if the synchronization of the system clock is deactivated on its Xbox Series X, its games will constantly run a five percent slower. The problem was discovered when comparing the entry times in rey of fighters XV between PS5 and Xbox Series X. The PS5 version counted more frames than the slow Xbox series X by holding up and released buttons. This led the Reddit user to try among his two Xbox series X consoles, and was then when they noticed the discrepancy between the two, since the one that had the right clock had the same results as the PS5.
“My Xbox Series X Normal shows 60 FPS and 60 Hz. My XSX slower shows 63 FPS and 63 Hz. This is consistent with a slow watch. The FPS calculate function will have more frames if the time runs slower, “reads in the warning.
The warning continues:
“I trapped him while comparing the entry time between the Versions of PlayStation and Xbox Series X of rey of the XV fighters. PS ports counted more frames than the slow XSX while holding down and releasing buttons. I was about to expose SNK for an XSX port with errors until I tried it with the normal XSX. The normal counts of XSX and PS ports were identical ».
So what is going on? Well, after a series of tests, the Reddit user deduced that the watch of his system was diverting two minutes every forty minutes.
