Xbox Series X vs Xbox Series S – Know the Difference

The Xbox Series S is basically a lower-spec’d version of the Series X … but why?

Taken from Pocket-Lint … Microsoft will release its next-generation powerhouse of a games console – the Xbox Series X.

However, that might not be the only machine available. A trimmed-down version is also heavily rumoured, which will provide some of the next-gen thrills but potentially at a cheaper price.

The Xbox Series S (also known as Lockheart) could even be announced soon, so we’ve put together a handy guide based on confirmed details (for Series X) and rumoured specifications (for the Series S) to help you decide which machine could be best for you.

The Xbox Series X will run on a custom Zen 2 eight-core processor running at 3.8GHz per core, with 12 teraflops (52CUs) of RDNA 2 graphics.

And while some of the spec will be around the same ballpark, the Series S is said to have just 4 teraflops of graphical power to play with. That’s quite a drop and could result in some games having fewer graphical features.

Ray tracing is still said to be supported by both, but while the Series X will be able to run games in full 4K resolution, with a possibility of 120fps support somewhere down the line, the Series S will allegedly be locked at 1440p and 60fps.
