In short: Microsoft’s less desirable but still functional Xbox Series S is now available at the lowest price we’ve seen to date, at just $249.99. The sale price is only valid for another 11 hours at the time of this writing, or until stocks run out. If you’re on the edge, you’ll want to make a decision sooner rather than later anyway.
Launched in November 2020 alongside the more powerful Xbox Series X, the S Series features a custom AMD 3.6GHz octa-core processor, 10GB of GDDR5 memory, and a custom RDNA 2 GPU with 20 compute units.
The entry-level Series S is slower than the Xbox Series X, has less memory, and a much less powerful GPU. What’s more, it has half the storage space of its big brother – 512GB of flash versus 1TB – and lacks an optical drive. Luckily, there are provisions to expand if you need to. more space.
The Series S is ideal for 1440p gaming, according to Microsoft. If you need 4K resolution, Series X is the best choice.
Support for the game might be a problem in the future, but it’s not a problem right now. Both consoles can play the same games, so it all depends on what kind of performance and appeal you’re looking for.
