The Xbox Series S has proven to be a console capable of dealing with current generation games, albeit with less potential than its powerful brother Xbox Series X. However, this also depends on optimization work by developers, so don’t there is a guarantee that all games will take advantage of the particular console. Recently, a developer assured that the system will not be able to with the next wave of AAA games.
Another dev considers that Xbox Series S will not be able to with the rest of the generation
During an interview with Gamingbolt Tadas Migauskas, designer and producer of the shooter Caverns of Mars: Recharged, talked about Xbox Series S and its potential for AAA games that are on the way as the transition phase (prolonged by the pandemic) is coming. to an end and several titles only consider PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC. In this sense, the creator pointed out that although Microsoft and Xbox promote the console as a machine designed to run games at 1440p and 60 fps, this will not be the case.

The promise of 1440p at 60 fps of Xbox Series would not be fulfilled
In this regard, he pointed out that Xbox Series S will not be able to keep up: “short answer: no. If we take the (defective) FLOPS metric and compare Xbox Series X with Xbox Series S, we get a 3 times difference in computing power of the GPU. Most of today’s games use lazy pipelines, so the rendered pixel count can translate into computational complexity quite directly. Now, if we take the expected resolution targets for both consoles, we get a difference of 2.25x. Add that to reduce the size of available memory, and it becomes quite difficult to keep up.”
Recently, Carlos Montero, executive director of Red Hook Games, also referred to Xbox Series S and assured that it will be very difficult for the console to offer 1440p at 60 frames per second in the current generation AAA video games that are on the way and even considered that the console only makes sense and functionality as an add-on option, not as a primary one.
