Plus they should add more memory while they're at it, so devs like Id Software don't have to omit RT from the S version due to limited memory.Don't believe this..
But the console can do with some more power. Enough power to get feature parity, like Jason Ronald claimed at the start, would be good.
They should just do a revision with a disc drive at the same price(or if possible even lower).I can see a redesign or cost reductions but I seriously doubt they are going to have three different specs running at once, making it "more powerful " or adding " more memory" just makes it a Series X, you can buy one of them now. This also just adds cost when really they need to be even more aggressive with the Series S value proposition with Gamepass.
6nm refresh of PS5 / XBSXS does seem pretty likely. Easy way to create more supply.
TSMC 7 & 6 nm are basically the same, so it'd be pretty easy. They'd be able to start buying up both 6 & 7 nm wafers = more supply.
They definitely won't change the specs tho. A 3rd Xbox SKU to develop for this early would piss off devs even more than the S already did.
Sure but devs still have to support it. That's why I doubt it would have new chip design / specs like the MLID guy speculated. I think it would basically just be a Series S slim. Like One S was.I'd imagine they'd just phase out the current S as the new S replaces it like they did with the Xbox One/S

And they may want to keep both 7 and 6 nm Series S chips being made in order to increase supply. More wafers, more stock, more sales, more money.
the One S was like that in a very tiny fashion. the One S has about 10% more GPU power than the base Xbox One, but it was only really ever used to run Xbox One games a tiny bit more stable (see the FPS increase in Project Cars for example). Some titles actually support 1440p on the One S (like Doom 64) but that has not really anything to do with the GPU being better but with it actually supporting output above 1080p
