The Xbox Series S features the same generation and architecture as the higher-end Xbox Series X, but at a lower price point with less CPU/GPU performance and less RAM.
Performance can be expressed differently depending on what part of the hardware specs you're comparing, but many speculate that it's below the current generation's higher-end Xbox One X as measured by shader TFLOPS, a measure of GPU performance, but with both the CPU and GPU being a few generations newer in architecture, it's the same or better than the One X overall.
Microsoft says it will release more information in the near future.
