Microsoft Presents Project Scarlett, the New Xbox Next-Gen Console to Be Released in Late 2020

During the E3 2019 conference, Microsoft officially presented Project Scarlett, the new generation console that, according to Phil Spencer, was designed and optimized for one thing only: gaming. It will arrive on the market at the end of 2020 and the launch titles will include Halo Infinite.

The new console will be able to support 8K and 120Hz resolution, will mount a powerful SSD to speed up loading times (like PlayStation 5), a Zen 2 processor and a Navi GPU made in collaboration with AMD, and of the very high RAM modules GDDR6 speed. The console will also support Ray-Tracing technology, variable framerate and will be backward compatible. According to the statement, Project Scarlett will be 4 times more powerful than Xbox One X.

Unfortunately, the appearance of the new console was not shown. Project Scarlett, by the way, does not seem to be his final name. Evidently, the Xbox team is still working on these aspects, since it is still a year and a half away from its market launch.
