The Power of Xbox

The fu­ture is look­ing bright for Mi­crosoft’s next-gen­er­a­tion con­sole

XBox: The Official Magazine - - INSIDER -

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.

above If we had to voice one dis­ap­point­ment, it would be that the proper name for the next Xbox hasn’t been re­vealed.
