After the first leak occurred during the morning of yesterday 8 September, where it was expressly declared the existence of Xbox series s with its release date and market price, Microsoft products and the division Xbox they subsequently decided to confirm the existence of the entry level machine that will occupy a market segment left empty today. With the arrival of the "small" console, Microsoft's strategies are now quite well defined. Both will come out on the day 10st November and will be released to the market globally at a cost of € 299,99 (Xbox Series S) and € 499,99 (Xbox Series X).
For all those who are willing to buy the console, and perhaps to pre-order it from the first available day, know that the date of the Day One of the preorder will be on September 22nd. Both versions will in fact be made available for all hardened fans who do not want to lose even a day so as not to find themselves empty-handed. Now let's see better the main differences, on the technical side, between the two consoles. Xbox Series X it will come out with the name of the most powerful console ever and the heart of the machine that beats inside is made up of a custom 7nm 8-core 3,8 GHz AMD CPU (3,6 GHz with SMT); a 12 teraflops 1.825 GHz GPU (locked); RAM 16 GB GDDR6; Frame Rate up to 120 fps and a maximum supported resolution up to 8K; finally, it has an HD Blu-Ray optical reader and will have a storage space equal to 1TB of NVMe SSD. All this information translates into typical next-gen features such as Ray-Tracing and Variable Rate Shading; Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) which will increase the speed of controller inputs and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) of the new HDMI 2.1 standard.
As for instead of Xbox series s, although the basic features have been disclosed, the more technical ones have not yet been fully disseminated. What we can tell you is that inside there will be an 8-core CPU with 16 threads Zen 2 with a clock frequency of 3,8 GHz; one 20 RDNA 2.0 CU @ 15.550 GHz Navi GPU; 10GB of GDDR6 RAM; Frame rate available up to 120 fps and a resolution of 1440p with upscaling to 4K; there will be no optical reader (fully All-Digital version) and will mount a 512GB NVMe SSD. All the main features typical of the next-gen that we wrote above will be shared even by the smallest console that Microsoft has ever created.
