Where To Buy

Microsoft has revealed prices XBOX XBOX Series S and Series X. That said, we know that the S range is the cheapest and also the smallest model. In addition, there are also other differences in the interior that justify the price difference of 200 Euros. But what really distinguishes the two consoles?

XBOX Series S vs XBOX Series X: after all, what distinguishes them?

Of course, 200 Euros always has some significance in terms of technical specifications. So, right from the start, the XBOX Series S has an AMD Zen 2 processor that operates at 3.6GHz. What is present in the XBOX Series X works at 3.8GHz.

However, there are also differences with regard to the graphics card. The XBOX Series S runs at 1.565GHz. The XBOX X works at 1.825GHz.

RAM memory is also different. So we have 10GB on the most economical model and 16GB on the most expensive model. In the case of storage, the XBOX Series S has 512GB and the Series X 1TB. In both cases, as is not surprising, they are SSD.

If in the case of expansion, the capacity is totally equal, there are differences in the video output. Thus, the XBOX S supports a resolution of 1440p. In the case of XBOX X it is 4K.

In short, the two consoles differ in processing power, graphics, memory, and storage.

As you can see, the XBOX Series X is significantly more powerful. The processor is much faster, has triple the graphics power and more 6GB of memory. In addition, it has twice the storage capacity. Likewise, on XBOX X you have the option of using physical disks. All in all, it is worth the 200 Euros you pay.

On the other hand, the XBOX Series S is also an excellent choice. This is because you can run exactly the same games as XBOX X, but for less 200 Euros. It is perhaps the best option for those who do not yet have a 4K TV.


The two new Microsoft consoles will be on pre-order from 22 September and will officially hit the market on 10 November.
