During Microsoft’s E3 Press conference, Microsoft unveiled project Scarlett, next generation of Xbox console.
While we don’t know what the console will be called at the moment, it will release later next year along with Halo Infinite. According to Microsoft, the upcoming console will be the “future of gaming” thanks to its performance increase over previous generation consoles.
This performance increase shouldn’t come off as a surprise as the next console will feature AMD Zen 2 chip, Radeon RDNA graphics architecture, GDDR6 memory, SSD, and support for 120 fps, 8K graphics. Microsoft adds, “Project Scarlett will set a new bar for console power, speed and performance, arriving Holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite. With a custom-designed AMD processor, high bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and a next generation solid state drive (SSD), Project Scarlett will give developers the power they need to bring their creative visions to life. Thousands of games across four console generations will look and play best on Project Scarlett.”
During the announcement, Microsoft also revealed backwards compatibility for at least 4 generations of games. As the release of the console is still a year away, we should learn more about the game as we move forward. One thing for sure, due to upcoming release of Project xCloud, your next Xbox should contain a lot of power. you can check out the announcement trailer of Project Scarlett below.
