The price, look and design of Xbox Series S have been officially confirmed by Microsoft.
Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Series S will be priced at $300/£250/€300, and that it delivers “next-gen performance” in the “smallest” Xbox form factor.
Xbox Series S is the official name of Lockhart, a smaller, less powerful sibling to Series X, and lacks a disc drive. Reports indicate it’s a 4-teraflop machine that uses the same CPU as in Series X, paired with a less powerful GPU and less RAM. It’s said to be designed for 1080p and 1440p gaming, whereas Series X can deliver 4K. Series S will also support Direct X ray-tracing and can stream media at the higher resolution.
Xbox Series S is an “all-digital” console which like Series X will include a custom NVME SSD (though at 512GB, compared to 1TB), powered by Xbox’s Velocity Architecture for “incredibly fast load times”.
Both Xbox Series S and X will launch on Tuesday, the 10th of November.
