At the Xbox @ E3 announcement, Microsoft unveiled 60 new Xbox titles and plans for a new Xbox.
For now, there is no aesthetic published about the console, but we do know what’s inside and what it can do. Microsoft has designed its own gaming CPU based on AMD’s Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture, which (if it can be done) translates into a console 4 times more powerful than the current high-end Xbox One X. Microsoft is also using faster RAM by implementing the GDDR6 memory standard. All this translates to faster loading games, higher resolution at 8K, and a higher frame rate at up to 120fps.
“We’ve created a new generation of solid-state drives (SSDs). We’re using the SSD as virtual RAM,” said an Xbox spokesperson in an unveiling video.
Microsoft says that Project Scarlett would set a new bar for console power, speed, and performance. it will arrive in late 2020, alongside the new Halo game, Halo Infinite. With a custom-designed AMD processor, high bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and a next-generation solid-state drive (SSD), Project Scarlett also aims to give developers the power they need to bring creative visions to life.
