Documents Leak Teasing a Cheaper Xbox Series X

Obviously, Microsoft has not revealed any details related to the so-called Xbox Series S but rumours of a cheaper alternative to Xbox Series X aren't new.

Those numbers come from the ProjectLockhart Mode specs found in last week's Microsoft Game Development Kit code and could mean that the console will push 1080p graphics instead of full 4K like the Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series X has a 12 TFLOPs GPU and 13.5GB of usable RAM In addition, its CPU has a lower frequency, although there are no details of how much that exactly is. This is a step down from the 4K max output of the Series X, but is still decent. The console has been rumoured for some time and often mentioned in the same breath as Project Scarlett.

The leaked documents have already popped up on Twitter, you can check them out below.

Whereas Sony's PS5 boasts 10.28 teraflops as well as a super fast SSD that is twice as fast as the Series X's hard drive. In the same document, there's a reference to both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series X.

County coronavirus cases rise as bars forced to close
An update from the Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team said the total number of confirmed positive cases remains at 36. The daily rate exceeded the 3.9 percent 14-day average, continuing the recent trend after weeks of relative stability.

The rumors of Project Lockhart - which is reportedly the Xbox Series S's official name - have been flying around for years but have only recently begun to pick back up as we approach the final stretch of the console's marketing campaign.

According to the Verge, Lockhart/Xbox Series S will feature an underclocked CPU, which will draw less power and require less expensive thermal solutions, just 7.5GB of usable RAM, and be capable of a mere 4 teraflops. That's less than what the current Xbox One X is capable of, and resolutions more common for popular gaming monitors than TVs.

So the release of the PS5 Digital Edition could be a very savvy move by Sony, and could put huge pressure on Microsoft. Compared with the Xbox One X, the Xbox Lockhart should have two advantages we can count on, even if we don't know anything else about the system: It uses a Ryzen CPU core (with a bit less clock), and it uses an RDNA2 GPU.
