According to Moore’s Law Is Dead, Microsoft could launch new, better-performing models of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X on the market starting in 2022.
According to YouTube channel Moore’s Law Is Dead, Microsoft could launch new models of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X with higher performance and 6nm AMD APUs on the market during the last months of 2022 .
The YouTuber in his latest video also talked about a possible PS5 Pro model coming from 2023 that will point to 8K . Again, we are talking about information and speculations to be taken with a grain of salt that are based on sources to be verified.
According to MLID, the Redmond giant’s goal would be to prioritize a new Xbox Series S model, which should arrive in the last months of 2022. The reason, in his opinion, is given by the fact that the take root rate of Xbox Game Pass is higher on Xbox Series S than on Series X. And given that for Microsoft it operates with the brand Xbox as if it were a SaaS (Software as a Service) and focuses heavily on service, it could therefore decide to launch a more powerful Series S model at the price of $ 350 to attract new players and at the same time compete with a possible Slim model of PS5 from Sony. The move would consequently cut the price of the standard model, bringing it to $ 189 – $ 249, making the Xbox ecosystem and Game Pass even more accessible for new potential users on paper.
Also according to MLID, the new Xbox Series S model could get a significant performance boost thanks to the new 6nm AMD APUs, bringing the console from the 4 TFLOPs of the standard model to at least 5 TFLOPs. Similarly, the following year Microsoft should also launch a new version of Xbox Series X with 6nm APUs, although in this case the youtuber has not specified the possible price and potential specifications of the alleged console.
As in the case of PS5 Pro, we advise you to take similar rumors and rumors with a grain of salt. In the past Moore’s Law Is Dead has proposed other leaks, in some cases fitting the predictions, as with the details of the Intel Arc GPU, but in others not.
