Xbox Series S to Get Performance Boost

Microsoft recently released a new Xbox software development kit, which gives developers access to more memory. The change should help improve the performance when playing game on Xbox Series S.

As spotted by The Verge, the latest game development kit frees up hundreds of additional megabytes of memory for Xbox Series S game developers. “This gives developers more control over memory, which can improve graphics performance in memory-constrained conditions,” Microsoft’s Game Dev team noted in the June Game Development Kit video.

While this should help provide a much-needed boost to the Xbox Series S, it will take time for developers to optimize games, and there’s no promise games already out on Series S will get a patch to improve their overall performance.

Either way, Microsoft freeing up more memory is a step in the right direction for the console. As Digital Foundry has pointed out, developers have reported the issues with the previous memory limitations on the Series S, which made it harder to optimize games on the system.

The Xbox Series S launched roughly two years ago as a $299 console far less powerful than Microsoft’s current flagship, the Xbox Series X. As noted in our review back in 2020, the Series S has its place in the current home console market, but its limitations for resolution and storage make it hard to recommend for everyone.
