Xbox One S teardown

By

The new Xbox One S reveals some unexpected goodies, according to a teardown by iFixit.

iFixit have completed a teardown of the new Microsoft Xbox One S – see iTWire's product announcement here.

Microsoft said it is a Windows 10 based device and pretty well all we needed to know was that it was a great gaming console.We lamented that Microsoft was following the industry trend of not fully disclosing specifications “under the bonnet” but a teardown reveals all.

If you are a gamer read iFixit’s teardown in detail, but if not here are a few salient specifications.

  • 1.75 GHz AMD "Jaguar" 8-core CPU and overclocked 914 MHz Radeon Graphics GPU with HDR video
  • 8GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • 8GB eMMC NAND flash memory (short term accelerator storage)
  • Up to 2TB, SATA III, 5400RPM, 6GBps HDD
  • BD-ROM (Blu-ray)
  • Wi-Fi AC, dual band, 2 x 2 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 4.x, IR Blaster
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0
  • 3 x USB 3.0 – will accept external HDDs

As I mentioned in the iTWire article, this may well be a great home entertainment system. At $549 for the big 2TB model, it fulfils multiple functions including as a media centre (it should accept a USB dual TV Tuner); 2TB NAS; 4K, HDR, content player; Blu-ray; and you can play games as well – all for about the cost of many bare 4K Blue-ray players.
