The Power of Xbox
The future is looking bright for Microsoft’s next-generation console
Project Scarlett is gearing up to be a complete powerhouse of a games console. Microsoft is claiming it will be the biggest leap in next-generation hardware and will be the most powerful console in the world. In terms of raw specs it’s certainly impressive. It’ll supposedly be four times as powerful as an Xbox One X and will achieve framerates of around 120fps, support 8K resolutions and have the ability to almost completely eliminate loading times. This is all thanks to a built-in solid-state drive, high bandwidth GDDR6 RAM, a custom-designed AMD graphics processing unit, and at its heart a custom AMD Zen-2 CPU. These may only be preliminary figures, as Microsoft has a tendency to push for better hardware towards the release of a console, just like it did before releasing the Xbox One where it announced a boost in specs. Project Scarlett is set for a holiday 2020 release and will launch with HaloInfinite.
