The new Xbox “inferior version” for the month of August ?
In addition to the powerful Xbox Series X, we know that Microsoft is also preparing a declination softened its future console, the objective of which is to be displayed in stores at a price more affordable. A Xbox to the code name of ” Lockhart “, which could be renamed in the Xbox Series S at its launch. Recent documents relating to the devkit from Microsoft have also mentioned very explicitly this Xbox Lockhart.
According to Eurogamer, Microsoft will formalize not this new Xbox Series S (Lockhart) before the month of August. The american giant should first of all demonstrate the power of its Xbox Series X, during the planned event in July, in order to respond to Sony and its PS5. A little later, Microsoft should, therefore, lift the veil on the other Xbox, namely, a declination of less mature, which would have 7.5 Gb of RAM (compared with 13.5 Gb for the Series X) and a power of 4 Tflops (compared to 12 for the Series X).
A console less powerful so that would be cut for all those who don’t need the superpower of the Series X, and in particular those who are going to connect their console to a 1080p screen or a monitor 1440p. As the PS5 Digital Edition, this Xbox Series S will also be a price for the new range Xbox. Some, however, show a certain scepticism with regard to this strategy unique is to launch two versions of a console ” next gen “, but at different power… Case to follow so.
