Today at their impressive E3 press conference, Microsoft delivered just what many of us expected, with new news on their next generation of gaming hardware, Project Scarlett.
Microsoft’s next generation console will feature a custom designed processor based on AMD’s Zen 2 technology. making project Scarlett “four times more powerful than the Xbox One”, capable of “resolution and framerates we’ve never seen before”. Project Scarlett is expected to feature 8K visuals, with accelerated ray-tracing, and support variable framerates up to 120FPS. New SSD technology hopes to all-but-eliminate loading times.
The Xbox team wants to deliver more content, and better than ever before. With a new emphasis on support for crossplay and cloud gaming. Though we unfortunately did not get to see the unit itself, the presentation was full of promise with Xbox clearly hoping that Project Scarlett will deliver a new, powerful gaming experience like none other when it hits the scene in late 2020.
