Straight from the Xbox E3 2019 panel, Microsoft has announced the first details on their brand new console, currently known as Project Scarlett which will launch in Holiday season 2020!
Project Scarlett will set a new bar for console power, speed, and performance. Powered by a custom-designed processor, leveraging the latest Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture from AMD, the console will deliver a new level of immersion. Paired with high bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and a next-gen solid state drive (SSD), Project Scarlett will provide developers the power they require to bring their creative visions to life. Featuring hardware accelerated raytracing, variable refresh rate, 8K capability, and ultra-low latency input, the next console will deliver a new level of fidelity, precision, and accuracy never before seen in console gaming.
Microsoft confirmed that the new console will also have backwards compatibility features including thousands of games across four console generations which will look and play best on Project Scarlett.
