Xbox Series S Lockhart will only run at 1080p claims source

The Xbox Series S console, aka Lockhart, will supposedly not hold back the Xbox Series X because the only primary difference is resolution.

One of the big questions for Microsoft’s reveal event in July is whether they will talk about the next gen console codenamed Lockhart, and widely assumed to be called the Xbox Series S.

Microsoft has alluded to the console several times but despite numerous leaks and rumours, including the supposed specs, it’s still not clear what it is or how much it will cost.

But according to a new repot the console will be able to run graphics the same as the Xbox Series X, just not at the same resolution.

An article on Thurrott claims that the Xbox Series X will be optimised for 4K gaming, while Lockhart is aimed at 1080p displays, since it has a 4 teraflop GPU rather than a 12 GPU one.

There’s still uncertainty over how big of a price difference there would be between the Lockhart and Xbox Series X though, with the suggestion that it would need to be at least $100 to be worth the effort.

The article also suggests that Lockhart could end up being physically larger than the Xbox Series X, based on prototype hardware currently being used, and that originally it was going to be released in mid-October – following an August launch for Xbox Series X.

Obviously, that idea was abandoned a long time ago but Microsoft (and Sony’s) plans are constantly changing at the moment and if we don’t hear about Lockhart in July it’ll be because they’re still not sure when to release it or at what price.
