Xbox One consoles are no longer being made
According to The Verge Microsoft is no longer making its Xbox One consoles.
Microsoft reportedly stopped making Xbox One consoles in late 2020, just when the Series X|S has been released. This information actually comes at a surprising moment because just yesterday Bloomberg confirmed Sony will continue making PlayStation 4 in order to meet the demand.
According to the statement from Cindy Walker, the company is no longer making any of the Xbox One consoles, including the S version which was the last to be discontinued. The company began phasing out its old generation just before the new generation of “Series XS” was released in November 2020.
“To focus on production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020,”
— Cindy Walker, Senior Director of Xbox console Product Marketing
The current-generation Xbox Series S is easily available at MSRP globally. This model features just as many AMD Zen2 cores, but its CU-limited GPU requires less space on the wafer, which then translates into more dies for each wafer than Xbox Series X.
The updated Xbox One series featured 16nm AMD Jaguar APU with either GCN2 (Bonaire) or GCN4 (Ellesmere) GPU, while the current generation features AMD’s latest RDNA2 graphics architecture.
Microsoft is now rumored to be preparing a 6nm refresh of the Series S. This new version would launch next year while the original model could see a price drop to 190-250 USD range, claimed Moore’s Law is Dead.
