This was done at the time when comparing the Xbox Series S and Xbox One X because many users really thought that the Xbox Series S with its 4 teraflops could be more powerful than the Xbox One X with its 6 teraflops. The pros and cons of each have come to light, with very little benefit for the next generation console. Now the comparison is similar, except for one important fact, it’s been over two years since the little S launched. How will it compare to the PS4 Pro?

From Digital Foundry, they make an analysis, accompanied by several comparisons, of games that, for the most part, have changed since their launch or are directly adapted to the new generation. So the comparison becomes more interesting if we just look at the teraflops: which is better: the 4.2 teraflops of the PS4 Pro or the 4 teraflops of the Xbox Series S?

All caveats aside, the Xbox Series S has a clear advantage.

In the video they take a few games like Elden Ring, Cyberpunk 2077, Grand Theft Auto V or The Witcher 3 and the truth is that when it comes to resolution it’s the same but all these games are definitely optimized for Xbox Series S. , which takes advantage of a number of advantages, such as a powerful processor or the terrible speed difference of its SSD. As for the last point, the Microsoft baby can load games in just 12 seconds, while the PS4 Pro takes over 50 seconds.

But the biggest difference between the two is the Xbox Series S’s ability to run those games at 60fps, which the aging PS4 Pro processor simply can’t. Of course, the 30fps comparison is rarely on the Sony console side either, as they are never as stable as they are on the Xbox Series S. The Callisto protocol comparison deserves a separate mention, its strengths being the difference between day and night.

If we have to pick a winner, it’s clearly the Xbox Series S, but it’s a test that not only proves that teraflops can’t be directly compared between generations as a measure of power, but also shows us that previous generation consoles are definitely behind the console whose starting the price of just 299 euros is already better than any premium version of the previous generation.
