Xbox Series S vs. Series X

When deciding between the new Xbox 2020 models, the first thing you need to know is that the Xbox S is smaller than the Xbox X. Overall, the console itself is slimmer and shorter. Inside, it has slightly less RAM and processing power. The Microsoft Series S costs a bit less than the Xbox Series X price since it is smaller overall. The reason the Xbox S is so much smaller is because it is an all-digital console. Unlike the Xbox X, it does not play physical editions of games. Instead, you can just download digital copies to play.

Despite these differences, there are still quite a few similarities between the consoles. They use the same style of controller and have access to the same sorts of games. Furthermore, they both offer 4K streaming and gaming output. With similar ray tracing, variable rate shading, and variable refresh rate on both the S and the X, your game will look about the same when run on either console.
