Thanks to LG for sponsoring this video! Check out the LG OLED CX48 TV at
Xbox Series X and Series S have a few key differences in GPU processing power (TFLOPS), storage, and RAM- but how do these differences manifest in-game? We do some side by side comparisons using Assassin's Creed Valhalla to find out, and we're using the LG OLED CX48 TV as the display since it's a 4K OLED TV giving amazing picture quality and HDMI 2.1 for ultra-fast refresh rates. It's the perfect TV for console gaming! You can purchase it here:

  • Everything is cool and all except the price difference is about 3000 unit money in my country. So series S + additional drive is more atracting for me

  • Linus, Assassin's creed Valhalla is optimized for Series S | X, Doom Eternal is not optimized(though a patch is coming). Valhalla is optimized for a higher resolution on series S. Doom Eternal runs on a Xbox One S performance profile on Series S, not Xbox one X. This is why it doesn't look as good as Valhalla. Backward compatibility mode on Xbox Series S and X runs in GCN mode for the GPU instead of RDNA2. It won't get the performance gains of RDNA2 in terms of IPC too.

  • Can someone explain why someone would buy either of these rather than a pc? There used to be reasons on both ends to like pc or console but I cant see why I wouldn't buy a slightly more expensive gaming pc for like 600 or 700 and just upgrade parts when I need instead of buying a system thats almost exactly the same as the previous gen with slightly better graphics ESPECIALLY sense I dont give a rats fucking ass about 4k it truly does not look that much better to me it just doesn't at least not enough to make it worth as much money as the X is

  • 7:30 That's actually because ID didn't update the game for next gen. It's running on back compat mode but Series S runs the Xbox One S version (which runs at 900p60) and the Series X runs the Xbox One X(above 1440p). I'm sure the Series S could run the game at 1440p60 or at least 1080p60. Same for Series X with 4K60.

    Kait0s!Kait0s!2 天 前
  • I really think the S will be enough for me. Of all the physical games I own physically only one isn't on gamepass, everything else I've played this past gen was either purchased digitally or on GP (of free games with gold). I didn't plan on it, just happened that way. Been playing 32" 1080p for the past decade and its fine for me. Currently saving for a house with the Mrs so no TV purchase on the horizon but is imagine 1440p will be ample for 5 years or so.

  • They're not so far from what Steam Machine tried to be. It is just two different spec PCs now, not a games console... Sony have some work to do (I prefer PS than XB) because other than Nintendo there doesn't seem much room for games consoles any more. Just use a PC - cheaper to get in too and slowly upgradable...

  • It's worth noting that the reason for the big difference with Doom Eternal, is due to the fact that the Series S is running the XB1/XB1S version whereas the Series X is running the XB1X version.

  • The choice is very simple. Don't want to spend more than $300 buy Series S, otherwise buy Series X. I only bought a console now because the Series S exists. I am traditionally a PC gamer, but I am not in a position now to upgrade my PC, so it was an easy choice for me

    James JugganJames Juggan3 天 前
  • I don't think this is a problem with the different consoles bit the fact the optimisation for the s is a lot worse as of the developers didn't care as much and thought " we'd just patch it later who cares this is the weaker version anyway"

  • Your going to need a hard drive with the Series S , They cost 299$ for a 100$ hard drive. So you have to pay the cost of the system again just for the hard drive so its 600$ for the S and 500 for the X , its 100$ more. lol good scam you do not see at first.

  • I got the Xbox Series S. I love it so far. My only small complaint was that Microsoft handicapped it by not allowing it to run xbox one x enhanced versions of backwards compatible titles, despite it being powerful enough to run older games at 60 fps. So we are stuck with 30 fps versions of titles like Final Fantasy XV. Such a shame. Maybe this can be patched in the future.

    JoeyJoey4 天 前
  • Speaking from a country in which the difference isn't only 200, I can see why a lot of people will go for the Series S. While here it is around R$2800, the Series X is around R$4599. To put it in perspective, the current minimum wage is R$1045/month. Another big attractive is the Game Pass: here, the Ultimate with more than 300 games available costs R$45/month while new games average from R$200 to R$300. As someone who didn't play anything from the PS4/XONE generation, it actually comes as a way of not only playing those games but also having the option of grabbing some new generation ones. Not to mention 1080p TVs are much more abundant than 4K ones, which would cost at least R$2000... When you start to add in all the costs, the Series S could be renamed to "Xbox Series: Third world edition"
