Xbox Series X and Series S launched in November 2020, heralding a new generation of game experiences. The Series X was marketed as Xbox's most powerful console ever, while the Series S touted next-generation performance at a more affordable price.

Xbox Series X|S is backward compatible with Xbox One. To deliver the highest quality backwards compatible experience consistent with the developer's original intent, the Xbox Series X|S applies improved texture filtering, higher and more consistent frame rates, faster load times, and Auto HDR.

Powered by the Xbox Velocity Architecture, Xbox Series X|S provide improvements over Xbox One, including faster load times and Quick Resume. Xbox Series S supports all the same next gen features including HDMI 2.1, frame rates up to 120fps, DirectX Raytracing and Variable Rate Shading. It also supports Spatial Sound, including Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision via streaming media apps like Disney+, Vudu and Netflix at launch.

With a family of next-gen Xbox consoles, even greater variety and value with Xbox Game Pass, and an expansion to Xbox All Access, Microsoft invites everyone to join them for this next generation of gaming.
