On one side of the box it is indicated which consoles it works on:
- Xbox Series X/S
- Xbox One
- Windows 10
The “cheap” version of the console has been rumored since april last year. Last June they had already leaked their specifications. It has been developed under the code name “Lockhart” and will be a digital version of the Xbox Series X. That is, it will not have a disc player.
Microsoft’s cheapest next-gen console is expected to have 7.5GB of RAM, a graphics performance of about 4 teraflops, and have the same processor as the one. Xbox Series X. The goal is for it to work well on 1080p and 1440p monitors, rather than large 4K TVs.
According The Verge, despite many of the rumors that the Xbox Series S will have a processor of lower speed than the Series X, they have had access to documents that indicate that it will not be like that, they would have exactly the same speed.
