Xbox Series S details revealed

Hardware specs of the second next-gen console announced

Posted on

Microsoft has announced the complete details of Xbox Series S console, launching November 10 for $299 USD / $379 CAD.

Featuring a compact new design in Robot White, Xbox Series S is the smallest Xbox ever created, and does not feature a disk drive. Xbox Series S includes a new Xbox Wireless Controller, also in Robot White. This controller will also be available as a standalone purchase this holiday.

Xbox Series S is similar in CPU and has the identical I/O performance as Xbox Series X, while rendering at a lower resolution. Xbox Series S promises 4x the processing power of an Xbox One console and supports experiences up to 120fps, support for hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing and Variable Rate Shading.

Xbox Series S includes 512GB of custom SSD storage and is powered by the Xbox Velocity Architecture, delivering more than 40x the I/O bandwidth of an Xbox One resulting in faster loading times, steadier frame rates and Quick Resume for multiple titles.

Like Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S supports the Seagate Storage Expansion Card where you can add 1TB of additional storage with the full speed and performance of the Xbox Velocity Architecture. While your previous generation Xbox titles can still be played directly from your existing external USB 3.1 hard drives, to receive all the benefits of the Xbox Velocity Architecture and optimal performance, games Optimized for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X must be played from the custom internal SSD or a Seagate Storage Expansion Card.

Xbox Series S also gets the same audio as Xbox Series X with Spatial Sound, including support for Dolby Atmos. Support for Dolby Vision via streaming media apps like Disney+, Vudu and Netflix will be available across Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X at launch, and Dolby Vision support for gaming will come first to our next-gen Xbox consoles in 2021.

The primary difference between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S is in resolution. Xbox Series S delivers approximately 3x the GPU performance of Xbox One and was designed to play games at 1440p at 60 frames per second, with support for up to 120fps.

Microsoft is also offering Xbox All Access, where fans can get a console with 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with no upfront cost, for just USD $34.99/month for 24 months for Xbox Series X and USD $24.99/month for 24 months for Xbox Series S.
