According to the rumors about the Series S that started circulating way back last year, Microsoft is developing the disc-less console under the codename “Lockhart. ” It will reportedly be capable of 1080p and 1440p gaming, have 7. 5GB of RAM rather than the 13. 5GB found on the Series X, as well as an underclocked CPU and a lower performance GPU.
Back in mid-August, the packaging of what appeared to be a controller for the Xbox Series S was leaked online, pretty much confirming the existence of Microsoft’s long—rumored cheaper next-gen console.
The photo render shows a white console that looks similar to (but not exactly like) the Xbox Series X, along with the controller we saw last month.
The leak also puts the cheaper console’s price at $299, making it a more appealing option for parents buying gifts for their kids this holiday season — assuming it’s coming out this year, that is.
