November is ready to be a big month in the game world. Microsoft Xbox series X Series S, it’s also likely Sony ps5 And the diskless brother, PS5 Digital Edition, will touch down at about the same time.
Sony consoles boast a lot of excitement, but focus on the Xbox pair. We recently found out how the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S can compare to each other in terms of power, price, availability, and appearance. Are you wondering which new Xbox console to buy? This way we will go right and explain everything…
Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S: Price
The Xbox Series S has lower specs than the Series X and is expected to be cheaper. And you will be right.
The price is in line with the original Xbox One and Xbox One S, and at first glance it looks pretty good.
Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S: Specifications
The Series X is a bigger, more powerful and more functional console. According to the head of Xbox Phil Spencer, it has four times the performance of the Xbox One X. Inside, there is a 12 teraflop GPU.
Compared to the Xbox One’s 8-core 1.75GHz CPU, or the One X’s 8-core 2.3GHz CPU, the Series X’s 8-core 3.6GHz custom AMD Zen 2 chip should improve every aspect of how your game runs. Loading times are promised to be substantially reduced. This means you can launch the game and start almost immediately. Wow.
Series X also features variable rate shading and hardware accelerated DirectX ray tracing for improved graphics. With Quick Resume, you can interrupt the game or interrupt it (choose where you left off).
There’s an HDMI output on the front of the connection, and Microsoft has confirmed that the box ships with a super-fast HDMI cable. This is useful if your selected display supports it. HDMI 2.1.. This gives gamers a maximum frame rate of 120 fps and a variable refresh rate (VRR) Technology too.
Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Series X has neither HDMI input nor optical digital output. Both Xbox One X And Xbox One S.. Since the HDMI input was introduced on the Xbox console, I was able to connect and control the set top box, but many people felt that it wasn’t actually implemented correctly.
However, the loss of light output can have a significant impact on the user. So if you want to enjoy the Xbox Series X home cinema sound, AV receiver Or a soundbar with HDMI connection.

How about Series S? I only have a 4 teraflop GPU. This is far from the series X grunts. According to a recent report, I’m only using 512 GB of solid state drives. This looks pretty disastrous, especially when compared to the Series X 1TB hard drive. You need to wait for how fast your game fills the available space.
It will also be interesting to see how both consoles stack up when it comes to loading games and switching between them. Is it clear that the horsepower of the Xbox Series S has decreased?
Like the Xbox Series X, the Series S has 120fps gaming at 1440p resolution, DirectX ray tracing, variable rate shading, and variable refresh rate (VRR). Play the game in 4K and upgrade non-4K games to that resolution. We also promise to “play 4K streaming media”, perhaps from online services such as Netflix.
Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S: Design and Build
Series X measures 30.1 x 15.1 x 15.1 cm (height) compared to 6 x 30 x 24 cm on the Xbox One X. Its weight is 4.45kg, compared to 3.69kg on older machines.
It doesn’t have the exact dimensions and weight of the Series S, but it’s considerably smaller than the Series X, as you can see from the video above. In fact, it’s almost 60% smaller, and not only that, it’s the smallest Xbox ever, but it fits inside the Series X console.
The two consoles are also quite different. The Series S is a bright color, much less impressive than the X. There are also cooling openings on the side (looks like a speaker grill), and the X allows air to pass through from the top.
What do you think? Which console design do you prefer?
Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S: Judgment
X and S are two completely different propositions. Of course both are connected to the internet, both are playing the same games and both have access to videos and music Streaming service.. But which one is right for you really depends on your needs.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to disk format, don’t worry about the power drop and your budget won’t exceed $249/$299. The XboxOne S looks like a console.
But if you want the ultimate next-gen Xbox experience, you’re more likely to need the Series X. It’s big and powerful on paper, but over time we’ll see if this impacts the user experience. If your game looks better and loads faster than the S, Series X may be your only option. It also has an on-board disc drive so you can play Blu-ray and CDs.
However, all this extra power comes at a price. Exactly about £250 (or $200). When you’re done with both consoles, you can clearly tell the Xbox Series X whether it’s worth it or not.
