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:

  • The problem with doom in this video is it runs the Xbox one S version on the series S, where as the series X runs the Xbox one X version. It needs a next-gen patch to bring it more in line with how it should be.

  • Strange review. Why you didn't tested S version on full HD TV??? I don't want to buy 4k and I didn't understand are S are the same as X in Full HDTV? Or even in HDTV it will be also crap?

  • The reason Doom Eternal looks better on the Series X is because it's running the Xbox One X version of the game and the Series S is running the Xbox One S version. The game has not been optimised for next gen yet. That's coming next year, and the Series S runs One S games. The Series X runs One X versions of games.

  • I think for most people the best option is to go for the PlayStation 5, and in about a year or two get the Series S and Xbox Games Pass. I think it's gonna be more important to own both consoles this generation due to Sony investing more and more into first party exclusives and Microsoft building their first party portfolio with Bethesda and some other purchases. Should be very exciting to see how this generation plays out.

  • -Xbox Series X - ($1200+ On Offerup) + Games($300) (Upscaled 4k) -PS5 - ($1200 on Offerup) + Games($300) (Upscaled 4k) -RTX 3090 - ($1500) + (Steam Sales) and in stock every single night on certain sites. Think I chose right. Most of you with a 3080 will be upgrading to a 4080 once you realize 10gb of Vram was sort of a slap in the face for future titles(Check Cold War @4k Ultra VRAM usage.) The 4080 will come out with 16-20gb of VRAM have 3090 performance at around $749 Next year. Around 50-60% of 3080 owner's will upgrade to it. It's funny seeing the (OMG Double the price) comment's on the 3090 when what it really is is Nvidia showing off what you'll be able to buy next year with a 4080. You just pay a premium to get it first. All the while, people are paying $1200 for upscaled 4K, expensive titles, and the same controller's. I have to mention you're also watching a video on 2 console's from a little guy named Linus, who would take a trip to Africa WITHOUT any Banana Boat lotion before he chose a console over a PC.

    • @Diego Alves Agreed! I'd bet that engine could do 1440p high settings on the series S. Its super optimized. A dedicated patch is coming out sometime in the future for next-gen consoles so I'll be curious to see Digital Foundry's video on that!

      Brian PorterBrian PorterIl y a 3 jours
    • People should read this comment. While I'm sure Linus had no ill intention, it's a bit of misinformation that could be addressed. Taking into account how great the Doom engine is, I'm almost 100% sure the Series S can withstand better textures for sure.

  • 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.

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!Il y a 6 jours
  • 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.

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...

  • 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.

    JoeyJoeyIl y a 8 jours
  • 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"
