It was about time we started learning the final details of the new generation consoles and their releases, and Microsoft hit first yesterday with the official date and price of their Xbox Series consoles, the S, and the X. The company also further described several selling models such as Xbox All-Access and detailed that pre-orders start in less than two weeks.

But fans immediately looked at all the resolution, TFLOPS, and framerate talk wondering how these new machines compare to both the current-gen Xbox One and themselves. And Microsoft has finally released the official info on this matter as well.

In terms of the generational leap, other than the many performance data shared in the video below, The Coalition's Tech Director Mike Rayner literally states that "the Xbox Series S is more than four times as powerful as the Xbox One S".

As for the official specs of both systems, you can check them out as well right here:
