Xbox almost certainly has a second-generation console with less power, too.

Lockhart’s rumors heat up

We’re probably on the cusp of one of the most confirmed fugitive next-gen rumors finally confirmed. For a long time, it has been talked about that the next generation launch of Microsoft will feature a family of two consoles: the Xbox Series X that we have known since December 2019, and a cheaper console with less power that has not yet been announced and code name of the Lockhart Project.

Thanks to a new leak from someone with a next-generation developer kit, we have further evidence that Lockhart is still on the way. As The Verge details, these kits have different profiling modes so developers can test how their games will work on consumer versions of both next-gen devices. The Verge reports that Lockhart will have 7.5 GB of available RAM, “a slightly underpowered CPU speed” and approximately 4 teraflops of GPU power; The Xbox Series X will have 13.5GB of available RAM and 12 teraflops of GPU performance.

Here’s a tweet that helps corroborate the profile report (Anaconda was the codename for the Xbox Series X):

The expectation is that Lockhart will target 1080p and 1440p gaming rather than the 4K resolutions that the Xbox Series X is targeting. It’s also (obviously) cheaper and still retains some of the next-generation features that will set it apart from the generation. current. An SSD for fast load times is supposed to be an example of one of these features. No price has been suggested because we still don’t know the price of the Xbox X Series despite it being revealed for over half a year.

However, when Lockhart is revealed, it appears it will be formally named Xbox Series S. That reflects the current configuration of the Xbox One S console and the more powerful Xbox One X. Microsoft presents that parallel will be intuitive for anyone who understands the current ecosystem. Xbox consoles.

Theoretically, all this should manifest itself from a rumor to reality in a very short time. Xbox is planning a transmission for July where we will see first-party games like Halo Infinite. This is where Lockhart will likely be revealed, especially after Sony recently announced the PS5 digital edition model. We are only a few weeks away from discovering it.
