Microsoft's new console, Project Scarlett, coming 2020
New hardware, powered by Zen 2, is backwards compatible
During Microsoft’s E3 2019 conference, they announced Project Scarlett, a new console that will be coming in Holiday 2020, alongside Halo Infinite. Powered by a custom processor that leverages Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA, the console will have GDDR6 memory and a new generation solid state drive.
The console is said to be able to provide hardware raytracing, variable refresh rates, up to 120 frames per second, and 8K resolution. No specific titles were mentioned for these key features but back compatibility is promised, with thousands of games across four console generations being available on the new console platform. It is being designed by the team behind the Xbox One X.
Not much information is known about pricing or exterior design. Expect more information about Project Scarlett later this year.
