The Gadget comes with an 8x Cores 3.6 GHz Custom Zen 2 CPU processor. With 4 TFLOPS Graphics and 10GB GDDR6 memory, it also has a memory band of 8GB and 512 GB Internal Custom NVME SSD storage. 

It’s I/O throughput is 2.4 GB/s uncompressed and 4.8 GB/s compressed. As per the Xbox Series S Review guide, the Series S also has external storage of USB 3.2 External HDD and also supports expandable storage of up to 1 TB which is exactly matching to Internal Storage.

However, it only has a digital drive and no optical drive. Its performance target is up to 1440p @ 120 FPS.

The size would be comparatively smaller than Xbox series X and will be available in white and black color.

The Xbox Series S is a four teraflop entry-level console for the next generation. Maybe Four teraflops might not sound like a lot when you consider the 12 teraflops packed into the Xbox Series X. However, it’s still pretty powerful and satisfactory when it comes to performance—considering that the current Xbox One has just 1.3 teraflops of computing power and provides fantastic gaming experiences.

The Series S aims at gamers’ desire to play in 1080p or 1440p, which makes a lot of sense considering most PC gamers still play at these resolutions due to the costs involved in upgrading to 4K.

The newly released xCloud also supports the idea of Microsoft launching a console option without high-end specs, as subscribers genuinely need a good internet connection to see an incredible performance.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed to see 4K resolutions via xCloud just yet, the technology is undoubtedly available to Microsoft to exploit it in the future.

Microsoft claims this new Xbox to be the ‘smallest Xbox ever’. According to the official image, the console looks the same size as three controllers stacked on top of each other, which is tiny. In terms of official dimensions, it comes in at 10.83 in × 5.94 in × 2.50 in, which is roughly 60% smaller than the Series X.

There looks to vent on both the side and top of the console to allow for improved airflow. Even though the black vent is not fit to our personal tastes, it at least helps to differentiate the device from the current Xbox One S. We’ll be very curious to compare the Series S with its larger sibling later this year.

Microsoft’s next-gen consoles Xbox series S and Xbox series x are digital-only.
