Really odd issue happening lately and I don’t get it.
I use energy saving, since the boot up time is crazy fast and I don’t mind not having updates installed while it’s off. I did this because I expected a mostly flawless experience compared to always using instant on.
My XSX has been on for several hours now and no games are running, nothing in QR either. Yet for some reason the dashboard is sluggish when I move downwards to my games and apps, Xbox live gold, game pass, events, store, community, add more. When I scroll between them all it loads the stuff on the right side of the screen very sluggish.
Usually It’s always lighting fast. What is causing this? This is now the third time. Can I refresh the dashboard some way? There was a way on the dash on Xbox One X, but doesn’t seem to work here.
Here’s a video of it, kinda hard to see, but compare to your own XSX, should be fluid, smooth.
Yeah it’s very hard to see. But there’s this sluggishness, slightly stuttery when I move between the sections. Maybe you need to see the video in full screen, it’s definitely hard to see though. If I do a reboot now it will be fine again.
And when I’m in a game and I press guide on the controller the menu appears with that sluggishness too. It’s odd because the first month since launch I had none of those stuff. It also loads pictures slower than usual now.
To be fair I did say prior to these new consoles launching that an SSD won’t be the panacea to all the Xbox dashboards issues.
Yes it’s helped immensely. But there’s still too much foundational stuff there that will never truly allow it to be that really crisp smooth experience the Switch is and PS4 used to be. Or even what the 360 was.
