The Xbox Series S is rumored to pack just 4 teraflops, which is a fraction of what the Xbox Series X offers and less than the Xbox One X’s 6 teraflops.
It shows a white console that looks somewhat similar in design to the Xbox One S. It’s depicted in a vertical orientation, though the rotation of the Xbox logo suggests that may not be the primary configuration. It also shows that the Xbox Series S is much thinner than Xbox Series X.
Microsoft has made the Xbox Series S an affordable and attractive console for anyone who doesn’t think 4K is necessary to enjoy gaming.
It is expected to be around as powerful as Xbox One X. There has been no further news regarding the console’s capabilities. Though it is expected to have NVME drives and ray tracing features.
The question though is how the performance will be of Xbox Series S, considering its smaller size and budget-friendly price. Speculations have been made as to whether Microsoft’s next-gen entry will be able to deliver on its promise of next-gen performance. Xbox Series S is set to be launched on November 10, 2020, but Microsoft has promised to reveal more details soon.
