Less video memory may make older games look worse on Xbox Series S than on Xbox One X




The Xbox Series S game console may not be able to run older Xbox and Xbox 360 games with the same enhancements available on the Xbox One X. This is because the more affordable version of the next-gen console has less VRAM available.

RAM and memory bandwidth of past and new generation consoles:

• PS4 – 8 GB GDDR5 (176 GB / s)

• PS4 Pro – 9 GB (218 GB / s)

• PS5 – 16 GB GDDR6 (448 GB / s)

• Series X – 16 GB GGDR6 (10 GB – 560 GB / s, 6 GB – 336 GB / s)

• Series S – 10 GB GDDR6 (8 GB – 224 GB / s, 2 GB – 56 GB / s)

• Xbox One X – 12GB GDDR5 (326GB / s)

The Xbox Series S model contains 10GB of available VRAM, while the Xbox One X model has 12GB of available memory. As such, the Xbox Series S version is likely to run backward-compatible games in the Xbox One S mode. This is speculated by Digital Foundry.

However, this does not mean that some games will not run much better on Xbox Series S than on Xbox One S. Some improvements may provide more powerful components such as processor, GPU, solid state drive. They can have a positive impact on performance in some games.

Thus, games that may have had some problems on the Xbox One S (overly aggressive dynamic resolution, slowdown, etc.) will be able to perform significantly better on the new hardware platform.
