Here's how fast games load on Xbox One X

Reviews for the Xbox One X have been released and while there's a lot of talk about how games look better, even in 1080p, there hasn't been enough focus on just how much fast the Xbox One X is in comparison to its predecessor, the Xbox One S.

It's clear that the Xbox One X is using its power to making gaming a smoother experience, even when there hasn't been an enhancement patch for the game. The Xbox One X's sheer power is loading games pretty darn fast.

As it turns out, the Xbox One X loads games fastest when they are installed on the internal hard drive and not on an external hard drive. The difference in speed can be nearly two times faster for some games. 

Below, you can find the comparison of times from various sources across the web!
