Update as of 09/08/2020 @ 3:41 PM: Microsoft officially announced the XBOX Series S, Next gen-performance in the smallest XBOX ever. $299.
Its been long rumored that Microsoft is working on two types of XBOX Series that matches their previous console XBOX One X and XBOX One S. The new XBOX Series S will have 1/3 of the performance of the XBOX Series X, at around 4 teraflops of GPU performance compare to the 12 teraflops of the latter. But the Series S will fully benefit the increased performance of its new CPU and fast SSD storage, which just means it could run the next gen games without hiccups. Considering you will be playing most of their game on an non-4k display. If you’re planning to play on 4k, you should get the Series X.
The affordable price of XBOX Series S will attract more players to try and board to the XBOX ecosystem, especially for players that don’t mind playing in 1080p display.
It is expected to released on November 11, 2020 and Microsoft is set to held a press event soon showcasing more details of their next-gen console, including the official price.
