    XBOX Series S download speed


    My downloads regularly hit 150-300 Mbps when doing nothing else, but when I play any other game, the downloads drop to less than 20 Mbps, even for single player no-internet needed games. Anybody know why the drop in speed is so much?

    As soon as I quit the game, I can watch the download speed shoot up immediately. I figured a small drop may happen, but not drop into less than 20 Mbps...

    :)

    The difference in speed

    Hi,

    That's quite simple to explain. The Xbox App shows downloads in MB/S (Megabytes per second), the Windows Store shows download speed in Mb/s (Megabits per second)

    A speed of 50mb/s = 6.25MB/s

    It's the same speed, just a different measurement. Like how home broadband is sold by Megabit speed rather than Megabyte speed.

    Remember dial up? A 56k modem was 56Kb/s. Which is around 7 Kilobytes a second.

    By the way, the Windows Store isn't just showing the download, this is the application that's doing the download. The Xbox App doesn't actually download anything on its own.

    XBox Game Discs on Series S

    Any external drive wouldnt work

    One it needs to be the same speed as xbox x series

    A dvd usb drive wont read bluray disks

    And at the expense of a bluray reader plus the additional hardware you might as well buy an x series

    Why would you buy something you dont need if you need to read disks

    There is huge difference between x and s

    And S ISNT DESIGNED FOR DISKS

    And the software would refuse it

    3 the s series downloads have lower file sizes since its less capable

    And yes the servera detect this

    So you dont need 4k files

    You do realize you only have a 512gig ssd in the s series right? And thr cpu and gpu arent the same aa the x series because of the limited hardware in the s seriea the downloads are smaller

    If you want disks buy the right product

    Do You Have to buy XBOX game pass to play good games in any xbox

    The Series S is digital download ONLY, and comes WITHOUT an optical drive, so unfortunately not. Only the Series X of next gen Xbox's will have a optical drive.

    You can see more information here : Series S.

    USB adapter+ssd drive+xbox's usb 3.0 port = confirm speeds

    but microsoft won't allow xbox series s/x games to run off external no matter what speeds. (they gotta make dollars from proprietary kit)
