Another major design change in the XBox One S is that Microsoft is now incorporating the power supply unit into the console, eliminating the separate power supply brick of the earlier console. XBox One S is available in white, red, storm grey, or deep blue.

Performance

Hardware-wise the XBox One S offers only marginal improvement. However, you are not likely to notice any improvements in performance. XBox One S sports an updated and more efficient 8-core AMD Jaguar processor, which still clocks at the same 1.75GHz as the older model.

The included AMD Radeon Graphics chipset is marginally more powerful than the graphics chip in the older console with the ability to handle 1.4 TFLOPS. The console offers 8GB DDR3 RAM and is available with 500GB HDD or 1TB HDD storage. There is also a limited edition model with 2TB HDD storage.

Unlike the PS4 Pro and XBox One X, the XBox One S is not capable of native 4K gaming. It however will upscale games to 4K for an improved experience for the gamer. If you want native 4K gaming on your XBox you will have to wait for Microsoft’s Project Scorpio, which is expected to be launched by the end of the year. The One S console can stream and play 4K content.
