Xbox Series X|S: New higher-performance models could arrive in 2022, according to a leaker

According to YouTube channel Moore’s Law Is Dead, Microsoft may launch new, higher-performance Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X models with 6nm AMD APUs in the later part of 2022.

The YouTuber in his latest video also talked about a possible PS5 Pro model coming in 2023 that will aim for 8K. Again, we’re talking about information and speculation to be taken with a grain of salt based on sources that are still to be verified.

According to MLID, the Redmond giant’s goal is to prioritize a new Xbox Series S model, which is expected to arrive in the final months of 2022. The reason, according to him, is that the Xbox Game Pass take-up rate is higher on Xbox Series S than on Series X. And since Microsoft operates the Xbox brand as if it were a SaaS (Software as a Service) and relies heavily on the service, it might decide to launch a more powerful Series S model at a price of $350 to entice new gamers and at the same time compete with a possible Slim model of Sony’s PS5. The move would consequently cut the price of the standard model to between $189 and $249, making the Xbox ecosystem and Game Pass even more accessible to potential new users.

Also according to MLID, the new Xbox Series S model could get a significant performance boost thanks to the new 6nm AMD APUs, taking the console from the 4 TFLOPs of the standard model to at least 5 TFLOPs. Similarly, Microsoft is also expected to launch a new version of the Xbox Series X with 6nm APUs next year, although the YouTuber did not specify the possible price and potential specifications of the alleged console.

As with PS5 Pro, we advise you to take rumors and similar leaks with a grain of salt. Moore’s Law Is Dead has offered other leaks in the past, some of which have been accurate, such as the Intel Arc GPU details, but others have not.
