In addition, the first version should have price cuts

According to youtuber Moore’s Law is Dead, O Xbox Series S to get a revised version with an AMD 6nm APU next year.

According to youtuber, Microsoft is expected to update its two next-gen consoles from next year. Starting with the Xbox Series S, which should receive a APU with better specs and with 6nm fabrication. With that, the console could have a Complete APU with 24 Computational Units.

The APU of the current version of the Xbox Series S has 20 Computational Units. According to Videocardz, the choice to cut 4 UC is for the APU, which is manufactured in 7nm, to have a good performance. YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead says that with these four computational units enabled, which would possibly lead to higher clocks, the console could be up to 50% stronger.
