It is common knowledge that the Xbox Series X just like the Sony PS5 will have two versions. The console makers are having a hard time keeping the cost low. A recent speculation claims that these consoles would cost between $600 – $800. Of course, the popular opinion believes that the $800 price speculation is “too high”. To this end, the lower version of these consoles may be a consolation for those who can’t afford the high version. Microsoft already revealed that it is the “Microsoft Xbox Series S”. The internal codename of this device is “Lockhart”.
There are reports that Microsoft will soon introduce “Lockhart” for the first time. According to speculations, “Lockhart” uses Zen + Navi architecture, GPU floating-point performance 4TFLOPS. Although this number is lower than the Xbox One X, thanks to the RDNA architecture, the actual game performance is above the X1X.
Microsoft Xbox Series S may cost just $300
In addition, there are reports that the entry price of the “Lockhart” (digital version without an optical drive?) is $ 300. This might be quite interesting for some gamers considering that the Xbox One X costs $499.
In addition, some reports believe that the 4GHz Ryzen APU exposed last year may be used on the Xbox Series S. It will use 16GB of RAM, 12GB of which is allocated to the graphics card and 4GB to the OS layer. Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that AMD Financial Analyst Conference will take place soon in China. At this event, Microsoft will demonstrate for the first time the Xbox Serie X hardware-accelerated ray tracing game based on the RDNA2 architecture.
While we await the official arrival of these consoles, the price speculation is quite complex. However, it is important to note that all major gaming consoles will not arrive until the end of this year. What do you think about the Microsoft Xbox Series X?
