Xbox One Dev Kits Receive More GPU Bandwidth

Microsoft has confirmed that Kinect-less Xbox One consoles will have up to 10% more GPU bandwidth. So, if future games are developed utilizing this freed up GPU bandwidth, what happens when that game is played on a Xbox One with a Kinect? Would you have to unplug the Kinect to avoid an instant performance hit?

"Yes, the additional resources allow access to up to 10 per cent additional GPU performance. We're committed to giving developers new tools and flexibility to make their Xbox One games even better by giving them the option to use the GPU reserve in whatever way is best for them and their games."
