Microsoft already has 2 next-generation consoles on the market with the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles, but the company is reportedly working on a few refreshed consoles including a suped-up Xbox Series S console.
In his new video, Tom from Moore's Law is Dead says that Microsoft's refreshed Xbox Series S console would be released at under $350 -- pushing the current Xbox Series S console down into the $189 to $249 market. The new Xbox Series S, at least according to Tom, is "likely being prepared to undercut a PS5 Slim".
The new Xbox Series S would feature over 20 Compute Units (CUs) as the current XSS console has 20 CUs with as many as 4 disabled. Microsoft and AMD are doing this to boost yields, and have a good supply of Xbox Series S hitting the shelves. But more CUs and higher clock speeds could see the suped-up Xbox Series S being up to 50% faster, and that is a huge deal.
On top of that we're to expect a much beefier enthusiast class console with a suped-up "Xbox Series X Refresh" console planned for sometime in "2023 or later". This would compete with Sony's beefed-up PlayStation 5 Pro that was teased in the same video.
