Microsoft had confirmed the existence of the Xbox Series S after its sudden leak yesterday, debuting its first trailer and even dating it for November 10th. Another video is now available which delves into greater detail on the console and what fans can expect in terms of features. Check it out below.

Additional details have been provided in an Xbox Wire post, noting that with the console’s Xbox Velocity Architecture, it can deliver 40 times the I/O bandwidth of the Xbox One. Quick Resume is also fully supported, just like with the Xbox Series X, along with support for Dolby Atmos at launch.

Though there’s a difference in resolution with the Xbox Series X outputting games at 4K and the Xbox Series S running games at 1440p/60 FPS (with support for up to 120 FPS), the latter is no slouch in performance. Its GPU performance is three times greater than the Xbox One. The good news is that the development tools and environment is the same across both consoles, making it easier for developers to “build and release their content across consoles more easily while still taking advantage of the unique hardware capabilities of the next generation.”

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are both out on November 10th. The former retails for $499 while the latter will cost $299. Pre-orders will open on September 22nd so stay tuned for more details soon.
