With Microsoft officially introducing the next generation entry console with the Xbox Series S and now finally revealing prices and dates for its next consoles, at least one of the major console manufacturers no longer holds any information.
The Xbox Series S is a simpler model than the Series X. However, one of its components remains better than the one on the PlayStation 5. The Series S processor is identical to the Series X; that is, it is still the same Zen 2 8 cores at 3.6ghz (3.4ghz SMT). For comparison, the PS5’s processor is an 8-core Zen 2 at 3.5ghz with variable frequency.
Although the Xbox Series S has less memory (10GB in all), less storage (512GB SSD), and lower graphics processor (4 Teraflops), its processor is identical to that of the bigger brother, still better than the one available on PS5. As already detailed by Microsoft, the S Series aims at 1440p resolution and not 4K, having 3x more power than Xbox One X.
